As an educator, you work with children for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, 10 months a year (or 12 months if you do summer programs).
That’s a lot of time and dedication spent on being the best you can be for these tiny humans!
It’s no wonder you can feel stressed. A little bit of stress is okay. Just don’t let it overwhelm you. But that’s easier said than done, right?
Thankfully, there is an awesome resource that’s as dedicated to your wellbeing as you are to the wellbeing of your students.
Headspace is committed to addressing some of the most pressing needs of educators such as reducing stress, increasing resilience and improving sleep.
You can head over to their website to browse self-help material or download the app to get started on daily meditation.
- Educators like you can live healthier, happier lives, because Headspace can increase positivity and reduce job strain.
- You'll be inspired to build and deepen your personal mindfulness practices. Headspace gives you the headstart and foundation you need to create a lasting habit of being mindful.
- Headspace will provide you guidance and support to foster mindfulness in your classrooms.
But to be honest, incorporating meditation into your daily to-do list sounds like a hassle, right?
Yes, it will feel like your schedule is getting more packed, but this is just as important as grading those tests or refining tomorrow’s lesson plan.
Treat your time with Headspace as a quick refresher for the soul, not another thing to check off the to-do list.
