Fit to Teach
Teaching is a challenging job. Primary teachers are more active during the day than office workers and will need to ensure they are able to meet the demands of the job both physically and mentally. In these sessions, I guide teachers through practical ways to ensure they maintain and improve their fitness, their nutrition as well as their mental resolve to find space and clarity in a busy working environment. Taking care of yourself and having a supportive working environment has shown to decrease illness and increase productivity and so it is important we all have the knowledge and skills to look after ourselves.
Most teachers I know work extremely hard for long hours. This can come at the expense of their own wellbeing. Most people who need to improve their fitness could be said to be lazy – but that’s not the case with teachers. Teachers know how to put in the effort and are great at goal setting and planning. What they need are practical strategies that can be integrated easily into their lifestyle and weekly routines.
Having more energy in and outside of the classroom, being able to focus, not feeling lethargic, being a great role-model for children and a better sense of feeling better about yourself and life in general are all benefits of Fit to Teach.
