Making Running a Habit

As another example, take Stanford psychologist B.J. Fogg, and his experience with starting his flossing habit:

“For me, cracking the code on flossing was to put the floss right by the toothbrush, and to commit to myself that I would floss one tooth — only one tooth — every time after I brushed. I could floss them all if i wanted to, but the commitment was just one tooth. [This works] because I was training the behavior. Maybe once every few weeks, I’d only actually floss one tooth, but a majority of the time I’d end up flossing them all.”

—Beyond the Miles

I’ve been running for 10 weeks now. School has been up for us teachers for two weeks, with this week being the meeting and “we-still-need-teachers” marathon interviews. The first right weeks were cake. Summer school started at 9 and I could get up at a decent hour, run, and still be showered and happy by 9.

At one of the meetings, I was talking to so coworkers about just this quote. I call it the “f*ck it point.” It usually happens about 15 minutes into the run when I realize I am dressed like an idiot and far enough away from home to just keep going.

Little did I know, I was forming habits. Nice. :)


You know you need to move when…

Someone’s bass sets off someone else’s car alarm…

…and it goes off for an hour.

Q
Do you like teaching online? Why do you teach online as opposed to a physical classroom?

I LOVE my online classroom.

I accepted a job in a regular school in August of last year.  It was my seventh year teaching and I thought I was prepared for anything.  After being punched and otherwise abused, I decided to make the switch to online to see if life was better there.

I have to say that I LOVE it.  I teach one lesson a week and then mini-lessons to the individual kids.  I know these kids better than I could ever know my classroom kids and I get to work with them in a closer relationship to make them better students, better readers, better, writers, and epic humans.  I wouldn’t trade my position for any classroom job.  This has been a life-changing, game-changing experience.


Q
Are you able to direct me to some Special Education teachers Tumblrs or blogs or any students in college majoring in Special Education? Thanks in advance for your help. :)

My girlfriend is going to be an elementary school teacher. This is her handwriting.

what the fuck

Well darn. I now feel my handwriting is extremely subpar.

I’d practiced my elementary school “perfect handwriting” so sincerely that now I can’t write anything for adult clients without being slightly embarrassed at how much it looks like it was written by a very neat 2nd grader.

Those students are going to be RUINED for all high school teachers!

Oh wow.  That takes all the fun out of grading.  What happens on true/false questions that they don’t know?  How will they make the perfect “that could be a t or an d” creation?
