Oxygen and the air pressure are always being monitored. In the event of a decompression, an oxygen mask will automatically appear in front of you. To start the flow of oxygen, pull the mask towards you. Place it firmly over your nose and mouth, secure the elastic band behind your head, and breathe normally. Although the bag does not inflate, oxygen is flowing to the mask. If you are travelling with a child or someone who requires assistance, secure your mask on first, and then assist the other person. Keep your mask on until a uniformed crew member advises you to remove it.
In his book, The Writing on the Classroom Wall, Steve Wyborney also takes things another step, telling readers to stay active in the form of exercising creativity.
The demands of the job are high, and fatigue is often not far away...While I am inspired by the students, I am also inspired to remember that I am creative. It is invigorating to remember that I am allowed to pursue my own growth and to expect much of myself. It is perfectly fine to take risks. In fact, it is essential. I have learned that, as an educator, the quickest route to exhaustion is not taking risks - not pushing the boundaries of personal growth. Doing the same thing the same way again and again is one of the quickest routes to fatigue. The reason is simple: we are energized by new learning. When there are no new experiences, no risks, no adrenaline, no new stories to share, we grow bored and weary - not better.
