Best Way to Stay Stress Free & a Giveaway!

This school year, I've gotten a lot of questions about how I do it all. From my colleagues, friends, family, and social media followers. In  case you're new to Miss Johnston's Journey, let me give you a short list of what I'm doing/did this school year {most of you can probably relate to it!}

1. Teaching- most days 6:45-5
2. Coaching high school cheerleading- 25 student athletes- November - February, Nearly every night including Saturdays- as soon as I leave school to 9:30
3. Teaching before school program 3 times a week 7:00-8:10
4. President of local Reading Association- monthly meetings
5. Blog Designing- 4 to 12 a month depending on time of year
6. Planning a wedding!!!!!! JUNE 12! 53 DAYS PEOPLE!

So...if you're like me...or have even more on your plate...or even less... my best tip for you to stay stress free?

Take one day a week off. Don't do anything. Don't bring your teacher bag home. Unplug your computer and your phone. Enjoy time with your friends, family, and loved ones. Awhile ago, I went to my fiancee and said I felt like we never spend any time together. Do I see him? Yes! Every day! But I felt like I was just sharing a bed with him, and never actually spending time with him. So we now have 1 day a week that we both stay off our laptops and phones, and just enjoy each other's company. We usually watch TV, but we do it together...on the same couch! With our furbaby Maxwell in our laps! Don't feel guilty about taking a night off either!!!! This was hard for me at first...then I realized that if I didn't take care of myself, I would end up sick (like usual) and then be stressed about sub plans and everything else.

I have a little giveaway for you, too!
