Teachers often work long hours, both in and out of the classroom, which can leave them feeling tired and drained. When considering how this can play a role in any teacher’s long term health, prioritizing the other key elements of a teacher’s wellbeing become that much more important. Eating healthy foods, avoiding caffeine, exercising often and getting enough sleep are just a few of the ways in which teachers can positively contribute to their wellness. These methods can help elevate mood as well as boost energy levels and endurance. You can even set time aside to indulge in some self-care. This can include taking a bath or doing your skincare routine. If you need extra support, consider trying meditation or talk therapy with a mental health professional. After all, taking care of yourself helps make you a better teacher. For more information on how to acquire a healthier work-life balance, check out the resource featured alongside this post.
