Thanks!
 
Thank you for the list of suggestions to implement in my life and in my students' lives. Teaching is a very tough profession, and the stress lately is sky high. We need to take care of ourselves, too

Very informative. We do have control on how we choose to act or react in our own environment. I choose to be happy and thankful and try to project positiveness in any way I can. Thanks for the info, Susan.
