October 13th is officially Treat Yo Self Day! <singsong> It’s the best day of the year! </singsong> Now I know we visit the CITT Bulletin to share best practices, pedagogy, and technology that we love, but it doesn’t hurt to take a short break from revitalizing courses or ranting about how rubrics get no respect to think about how we treat ourselves and the rest of the folks on our team.
Treat Yo Self was the highlight of an episode of Parks and Rec when Donna and Tom spent all of October 13, 2011 (wow, 10 years ago!) treating themselves to whatever they wanted. While I’m focusing on more professional, reachable treats in this bulletin, I will always encourage you to go all out. #treatyoself
I know, this list is nothing like the list in the show Parks and Rec, but I mostly want to emphasize the importance of workplace wellness. At the end of the day, you’ll need to leave work feeling well so you can enjoy all of the fun you have outside of the office, too.
Keep your team-mates well by doing the following simple tasks:
Whether it’s stepping away for a few minutes, eating sushi, or buying fine leather goods, I sincerely hope you have <singsong>the best day of the year</singsong>.
