1. Learn to Say “NO” More Often.
Sometimes we believe that the more we do, the more honorable we become in the eyes of others.
To make matters worse, those who appear to juggle 15 million things at once get accolades for hard work and dedication.
But less is more.
There isn’t enough time in the day to impress everyone and be mentally balanced.
Pick your side.
While it’s nice to be involved in your school community, it takes just that –a community – to keep things going.
You can’t and shouldn’t attempt to pile your calendar for the sake of appearing “involved”.
So say no, and don’t feel guilty about it.
2. Make a Commitment to Yourself.
Devote consistent daily, weekly, and/or monthly time to teacher self-care. Mark it in your calendar if you have to.
It doesn’t matter if it’s with your family, solo, or with your furry friends. Use the time to focus on yourself and the things you love.
3. Define Your Boundaries.
I know, it’s tempting…
You get home from a long day at work and tell yourself that you’ll just peek at your school email.
That quickly turns into a never-ending consumption of school-related business.
Set some boundaries.
After a certain area, disconnect from work.
It’s hard because there’s limited time during the school day and you have an endless stream of grading, parent emails, report card comments, planning, etc.
Allot time for those tasks, and then call it quits for the day.
Did an angry parent write you an email at 7 p.m.? Okay, that’s fine. The person will hear from you in the morning.
Does the principal have a quick question about that one student? He or she can wait, too.
After work hours, you manage your schedule.
4. Shorten Your To-Do-List.
Cut unnecessary stuff, and focus instead on 3 main tasks per day.
You could even do 3 personal things and 3 professional tasks.
Prioritize the most important items of the day, focus on those 3 things, and when it’s done, enjoy the rest of your day.
5. Enjoy Your Lunch Break.
A working lunch is fine every now and then, but making it a habit isn’t doing too much for your self-care.
Socialize with your colleagues, or eat lunch solo if that re-energizes you.
Stay active, preferably outdoors where you can get plenty of sunshine and fresh air.
Done consistently, exercise does wonders not only for our physical form but for our minds.
7. Eat Healthily.
Do you believe healthy food is medicine for the body and soul?
Healthy eating makes us feel alive, part of nature, calm, energized, and happier.
A healthy diet is an important element of teacher self-care.
8. Choose Your Surroundings Wisely.
Avoid toxic people and places.
When you can’t control with whom you work, do your best to distance yourself from the negativity.
Teacher self-care is about reaching for a level of tranquility that will give you the mental peace you deserve.
9. Let Others Have the Glory.
Research shows that because of our constant need for attention as human beings, we seek to be the center of it all.
Maybe someone is talking to us, and instead of listening wholeheartedly, we’re impatiently waiting to interject our own thoughts.
Well, there’s power in letting go and simply letting others have the glory.
10. Set the Tone Early in the Morning.
Our morning routines set the stage for the rest of the day.
That could mean a healthy breakfast, a soothing cup of tea, a favorite show, breakfast with the family, etc.
What things help your morning get off to a good start?
Consume those delights on a regular basis.
11. Know Your Tolerance Levels + Preferences.
We all have different tolerance levels and taking care of ourselves the best way we know how means being aware of what makes us tick.
Your stress level for a certain thing may be higher than someone else’s for that exact same thing.
Individuals will react differently than you towards certain situations because of their tolerance levels.
It’s not inherently bad, just different.
Stay mindful of this and do what works best for your mental needs.
12. Focus on the Things That Make You Happy.
Overall, teacher self-care is taking time to do those things that make you happy.
Being in a role of service is honorable, but don’t lose yourself in the daily grind.
When you’re happier, you have more to give to others and that includes your students.
