It is a great privilege and joy to work with each of our principals. Amidst deep complexity and unprecedented crises, school principals are making critical decisions on behalf of their school communities. I am continually inspired by their determination to always do what is best for their students.

I hope you find some inspiration in this list and you will try out a wellbeing micro-action of your own. Now more than ever, it’s vital for us to take care of our physical and mental health so that we can move from surviving to thriving. Personally, I am going to start my day with breathing exercises and end my day writing down one positive or uplifting thing that has happened. What will you do?
