    Episode #47 – Three Go-Home-Happy Strategies for When You’ve had a Bad Day

    Episode #47 – Three Go-Home-Happy Strategies for When You’ve had a Bad Day

    Hello amazing teachers,

    In this episode, I share three go-home-happy strategies for when you've had a bad day.

    Have you had a bad day recently?

    Did you go home frustrated, stressed, angry?

    Did you tell your spouse or significant other all about it in order to "get it off your chest?"

    I used to do this all the time, and now I regret it. My wife didn't deserve to have her day ruined by my bad day.

    Here she was having a good day, and all of a sudden I get home, and I share all the bad stuff that happened to me, and now we are both upset.

    That's not fair.

    In this podcast, I share what I've learned to do on those days, so I can go home happy.

     

    I also share about my new course on Udemy - How to Nail the Teacher Interview.  I give you a coupon code that allows you to enroll for free. It's a limited time offer, so get yours soon.

    I also  share my book recommendation: Big Potential by Shawn Achor.

     



     

    Until next time,

    Be amazing!

    Episode #43 – Teach Happier Strategy #4 and #5 – Thank Your Class and Surprise Appreciation

    Episode #43 – Teach Happier Strategy #4 and #5 – Thank Your Class and Surprise Appreciation

    Hello amazing teachers,

    Thank you for stopping by to listen to the latest episode of the Amazing Teacher Podcast.

    In this episode, I continue reading from my book, Teach Happier - 21 stress-reducing, joy-inspiring, burnout-avoiding strategies to help teachers love their jobs and have more success in the classroom.

    I read chapter 4, which is the strategy called, Thank Your Class. This is a strategy that I wished I had used more often when I was teaching. It's a great way to bring a little bit of happiness into your classroom.

    I also read from chapter 5, where I share the strategy, Surprise Appreciation. This is one of my favorite strategies,  and I know that once you begin implementing it on a more regular basis into your life, you'll understand why.

    I also mention and recommend a great book that I have found very helpful, especially in the area of happiness.

    The book is Brené Brown's, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are.

    Thank you again for taking a listen. Please share the podcast with your teacher friends on Social Media.

    Until next time...Be Amazing!

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Episode #42 – Teach Happier Strategy #3 – 21 Days of Gratitude

    Episode #42 – Teach Happier Strategy #3 – 21 Days of Gratitude

    Hello amazing teachers,

    In this episode, I'm doing something different. I'm actually going to read from my new book, Teach Happier - 21 stress-reducing, joy-inspiring, burnout-avoiding strategies to help teachers love their jobs and have more success in the classroom.

    I'll be reading from the Introduction along with the 3rd Teach Happier strategy - 21 Days of Gratitude.

    I share what I've learned about how our brains work, and how it is naturally inclined to look for the negative. With some training, however, we can learn new habits that keep our focus on the positive, leading us to be better teachers.

    I also talk about the power of gratitude. Gratitude is what balances out our negativity bias, and will allow us to have more good days.

    Thank you for taking a listen.

    Find my book on Amazon.



    Be amazing!

    Thanks,

    Sam

    I mention Caroline Webb's book, How to Have a Good Day  and The Happiness Track by Emma Seppala in this episode. Check these books out!
