Quiet Times

I took a mental health day today.

It was not my first and will not be my last

and it helped.

If felt wise to claim it when I did

at 6am

underslept, overwhelmed, stretched thin.

To recognize that my mental equilibrium

may require down time

in the midst of everything.

It’s time to restart. Shut down,


begin again.

There, that’s better.

  1. I am a firm believer in mental health days. People in education give, give, give. Some students/parents/colleagues need, need need or take take take. I hope you manage to find that equilibrium.
