As an educator, you do so much for and play many different roles for students, but how can you make sure that you are taking care of yourself? Self-care is an important component of a teacher’s mental health, but there are misconceptions about what it is. It’s common for educators to dismiss the self-care movement as “selfish” or “superficial.” But for teachers, self-care is so much more than breakfast in bed or treating yourself to a spa day. It’s about taking care of your health so that you’re prepared to be the best teacher you can be for yourself and your students. (https://www.waterford.org/education/teacher-self-care-activities/)
