Is being a teacher making you tired?

Teaching can be an exhausting profession and we can often feel burnt out at the end of term. We are in it for the long run and it is a marathon, not a sprint.

Making simple changes to our self-care routine can have a massive impact on our overall vitality and wellbeing. We may not see immediate results but over time each little change builds to form a solid foundation that holds us steady in a relentless and unforgiving profession. These changes can be as simple as going to bed half an hour earlier, making a nourishing lunch to take to work or drinking enough fluid in the day. Put simply, becoming more aware of the physical body and what it needs and being responsive to that can make all the difference.
