I took a break from social media for 14 days and here is what I learned
I have a love-hate relationship with social media.  I see the value of creating content for my audience and the connection it affords it.  I also see the black whole it can suck you into and the massive energy leak it can create both personally and professionally.  I took a very impromptu 2 weeks off from social media and holy heck…if I am being honest it was amazing.  In this episode, I share what prompted the break, what I learned and reflected upon while I was away. Most importantly, I share the changes I made (and have kept) since I've come back on. For More Info Go To: https://amanda-walker.com/episode204

The counterintuitive way to increase your energy
In this episode, I share the counterintuitive way to increase your daily energy.   When I was a newbie teacher I struggled with time management in class…I never seemed to get the really juicy stuff that I wanted to convey to my students.  While the suggested answer was “time blocking” it actually never really worked for me.  Many people teach this as a strategy for weekly planning to increase productivity.  Today I share why this is actually leaving you exhausted and overwhelmed.
