The Burned-In Teacher Podcast is all about going from burned-out educator to BURNED-IN human. On this show, I interview teachers who are or have gone through burnout and they share with us what they are doing or have done in the past to beat it. I also interview experts in the field of teacher burnout, education, productivity, happiness, and basically all things BURN IN. There will also be episodes where I share my own experiences and answer questions from listeners and Burned-In Teacher Community Members.

In this episode, I share my own, personal struggle with the Winter Blues AKA Seasonal Affective Disorder. I can always tell when it's settling in and I also know what has helped me in the past two years to do more than feel like I'm just surviving the winter. This is important because I feel your personal and professional life shouldn’t feel “on hold” or held hostage by the winter months and I choose not to settle for tears or being sedentary and isolated for 3 months of my life.

In this episode, I’ll give you a few tips that will help you to:

  1. Figure whether you’re dealing with burnout or the winter blues
  2. Reflect on what winter blues has looked like in the past for you
  3. Take small actions to make this season of the winter blues less hostage and more hopeful
