The Healthy Habits Teacher Self-Care Guide

The Complete Guide to Healthy Habits for Teachers

Defined by the WHO, self-care is “the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote their own health, prevent disease, maintain health, and to cope with illness and disability with or without the sup-port of a health worker.”

Self-care is often broken down into 5 components: physical, emotional, social, professional and spiritual. By adopting conscious self-care practices or healthy habits - in these areas, you can start to build resilience and be better equipped to deal with the stressors of daily life.

The Time Management Workbook

Teacher burnout is on the rise and teachers are now leaving the profession in record numbers. So how can teachers stay in a profession they love without paying the price with their physical or mental health?

The Mindfulness & Stress Teacher Self-Care Guide

The Ultimate Self-Care, Mindfulness and Gratitude Journal for Teachers

Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present, aware of our thoughts, feelings and sensations (but not ‘fixed’ on any particular one) and gently aware of each moment. Mindfulness practice doesn’t have to be time consuming - a few moments of mindfulness each day can build into a habit.

Mindfulness activities include meditation, yoga, journaling, doodling, coloring and meditation - all of which encourage you to ‘give your stress wings and let it fly away’.
