The days a teacher experiences in the classroom often take exhaustive tolls. It’s understandable, then, to learn just how many struggle with achieving a work-life balance that actually feels in balance. While teachers will never magically be able to transform their relationship with their job, there are methods to find peace in the madness and attempt to regain a bit more personal control of the day.

For example, when children are engaged in an assignment or project, teachers can truly take a moment for themselves and embrace it. At home, teachers can engage in things like a walk through the neighborhood, writing in a journal, performing some stretches, or spending quality time with their pets. It’s all about reducing the stress being experienced and this can be done by fitting short breaks into any schedule and giving teachers a quick reset.
