Being an educator is both rewarding and stressful! These days there are high levels of accountability and so many demands on teachers’ time it can feel like the endless tasks and expectations can deplete all energy leaving you with little left.
Still, we depend on you to be a positive guiding force in our children’s lives – often playing simultaneous roles as educator, parent, mental health counsellor, and caring friend.
For you to fulfil these vital roles, it’s abundantly clear that you need to develop resiliency both inside and outside the classroom.
Watch me, Lisa Baylis, MEd, teacher, counsellor, facilitator, and author of Self-Compassion for Educators: Mindful Practices to Awaken Your Well-Being and Grow Resilience as I show you firsthand how to be kind and loving toward yourself and how to prioritize and sustain your well-being through self-awareness and self-compassion...
…to not only show up, but show up with compassion and kindness rather than criticism.
Permission to be kind to yourself – allowing you to show up less stressed.
There has never been a time in history when educators have felt such overwhelming levels of stress, burnout, and exhaustion! We'll unpack the research on teacher stress, the impact on the body and brain and design a plan to create habits and structures of well-being in and out of the classroom!
