Mid-day wellness hour designed to help you develop simple daily practices that prevent burnout to help create a work/life balance.
About this event
"Wellness for Educators - Time for Self"
Often ignored but totally necessary, self-care is any action or behavior that helps a person avoid health problems. Self-care also helps us better our mental and physical health through better self-esteem, stress management, and overall well-being. These behaviors help provide balance in an increasingly overstimulating world. Self-care forms an essential part of a lifestyle that keeps us healthy, happy, and more in tune with our minds and bodies.
About the workshop:
This mid-day wellness hour designed to help you develop simple daily practices that prevent burnout to help create a work/life balance. Each session will explore the benefits of gentle Yoga, Mindfulness, Breathing and Relaxation techniques as a self-care practice within and beyond the demands of the classroom.
