“Exhalation promotes relaxation – stop regularly, breath in and focus on a long slow exhalation. Add sticky dots in strategic places to remember!”
“Try yoga or meditation – if going to a class doesn’t suit, there are plenty of apps and Youtube clips.”
“Have a neck or shoulder massage or facial this week.”
“Make an effort to walk through the school grounds and ask a colleague a question rather than send an email.”
