Jodi Mahoney, at School Inspirations blog,  wrote a post titled Notes from the Happiness Coach on March 5. Be sure to check out Jodi and her school inspirations for SOLSC. The Happiness Coach tips might inspire a story for you and some self-care/TLC.

Speaking of self-care, are you a headache sufferer? You are not alone! I have read multiple slices over the past several days and many slicers have mentioned having a headache. It hasn’t always been the topic of the post but maybe a side note or a detail the slicer added. I started to pick up on a pattern and wondered if my co-authors and I had any tips or ideas for caring for a headache. Here are our headache tips, remember, we are writers/educators, not doctors, but these tips might help someone out there. Use at your discretion and of course, if your headaches are chronic, you should get that looked at (that was a little bit of my “mom voice” coming through).


Stacey streamlined the essential information this year into a slideshow for easy access to frequently asked questions and information. If you need to refer back to any of the basic information about the challenge, click here to view a brief slideshow.
