Coming back from a break can be brutal. Your mind and body have been completely checked-out for the past week, and it feels impossible to be your previously energized self again.
Here are six things you can do to come back feeling refreshed and excited!
1. Drink A LOT of water.
This is the answer to everything, isn't it? Stay hydrated and you're sure to have a better day than you would have had otherwise.
2. Get a good night's rest.
Holidays are rarely synonymous with sleep, so make sure you make up for those restless nights by sleeping an appropriate amount the night before you go back to work. Believe us. It's SO worth it.
3. Plan out your day and get caught up on any important studio information.
Before you get back in the thick of things, make sure you're up to date on any and all parent e-mails, performance details, class announcements and schedule changes.
3. Eat healthy meals and snacks that day.
Take care of yourself so you can have the energy necessary to get through your long days.
Prep your mind for what's coming.
5. Warm up.
Prep your body for what's coming.
6. Remind yourself why you love to teach.
Make a list of all the things you love about teaching to pump you up for class.
