Book Description

Teachers face many challenges. Despite these, they give much of themselves to their students. This book is about taking care of oneself in simple, yet scientific ways. On an airplane, you are told to put your own oxygen mask on first and the other person’s after that. You cannot assist others unless you are fully ready to go yourself.

This book is about being ready to go by taking care of yourself. All ages of teacher, and teachers of all levels and subjects, can employ these tips that collected from the authors’ own lives and research. It will serve to encourage all teachers to develop into the most joyful and healthy people possible. Its main purpose is to provide modern ‘life hacks’ in order improve self-care, a concept which includes navigating preventative care, harnessing yoga and meditation, following good nutrition tips, and understanding media depictions of them.
