How do you spend the tiny pockets of time waiting for a meeting to begin? How about the time when your students are transitioning back from lunch or recess and you’re waiting for them in the classroom? What you’re choosing to do can impact your overall stress quite a bit. 

Confetti time is a term I learned to name these little moments. I used to spend my confetti time “catching up” on email until I learned how impactful these moments can be if I spend them in a different way. Impactful is also an understatement. 

Here are just a few things we’ll talk about:

  • A simple mindset shift and trick to use pockets of time to ground yourself rather than induce more stress.
  • How to avoid wasting mental energy when you attempt to begin small tasks during these pockets of time.
  • Need a handful of ideas on how to put this technique into practice? We’ll talk about that too!

Let’s dig into the magic of confetti time and how to use it to your advantage!
