Shaking Off the Glums

You know when you get a song stuck in your head, and it just WILL. NOT. GO. AWAY.

Yeah, that was me…yesterday afternoon.

I’ve been so dad-gum gloomy lately.

Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There has been such a fog of negativity hanging over my head for a while now, and I am sick of myself!

🙂

Is it any coincidence that Shake it Off kept playing in my mind?

Over.

And Over.

And Over.

For fun, I googled “Shake it Off” and “teaching.”

I watched a number of videos and found this one…so cute because 1) It’s a high school and 2) The teachers’ and administrators’ personalities shine through (my favorite is the track coach)…

I’m seriously considering having a brain break in my classroom and letting kids Shake Off the stress they’ve been feeling lately.

I’ll have to tell the kids that twerking is not allowed.

*Ahem*

Music is one place I turn to when I need to lift my spirits, and this song fits the bill, both in the lyrics and the fun rhythm.

I am determined to beat the blues…even if I have to dance them away.
