How to Gain Better Work-Life Balance this School Year for Teachers (Ep. 8)

 

One of the hardest things teachers strive toward at the beginning of the new school year is work-life balance.  

As educators, we get into the profession to change lives, to make a difference, but often, there are obstacles along the way and unrealistic expectations placed upon us.

Work-life balance for educators is one of the most difficult tasks to accomplish because we feel like we have to give more, be more, and do it all - "for the kids."  The fact is that the majority of educators lack work-life balance which impacts their stress levels, their families, and eventually leads to burnout.  Lacking this important balance is not going to support our well-being.  Being in burnout is not going to help the kids.  

That's why in this episode, I am giving you three ways you can gain better work-life balance and beat burnout this school year.
