25 Tips for Stress Relief (from So You Want to Teach?)

I guess I wasn't the only person inspired by Tim Ferriss' The 4-Hour Workweek to reduce my stress, simplify my life, and focus on doing what I really want to be doing. Joel at So You Want to Teach? posted 25 Tips for Less Stress last fall, and he also referred to many of the book's ideas in his posts. Great minds think alike!

Alternately, he compiled all the of articles into a free e-book called The Instant De-Stress Handbook (just subscribe to his RSS feed for the link).

I've added So You Want To Teach's RSS feed on the right hand side of the page, because it's always an interesting and informative read. Joel is a fifth year teacher in Texas like myself, and reading his accounts of his challenge such as his recent post Why I Hated Teaching During My First Two Years, it brings me back to my own experience.
