|My summer visit to the Walker Art Center|
inspired me. As part of my efforts towards
balance, I hope to visit more art museums.
The best I can offer in this regard is yet another attempt to find more balance by setting a weekly routine that includes the following:
- Reading, writing, and reflection
- Teaching, collaboration, and student feedback
- Healthy activity
- Family and home
Also, getting away from the usual routine at least once a weekend is a good idea too. A time to do something that you enjoy and is outside of your weekly routine serves to inspire, relax your mind, and bring the joy into life.
I work in a system that values balance. Leaders typically do not email or call on weekends or late at night. They support educators' needs to support their families and have a personal life. This is a positive approach, one that I want to follow in my own life and work.
