188 - TEACHER WELLNESS and SELF-CARE: How to Avoid Burnout and Rekindle Our FIRE

Is educator self-care even possible during a PANDEMIC?

Can we actually do better than aim for SURVIVAL?

How can we move from burnout to rekindled FIRE?

Catch my conversation with Lindsay Titus, Dan Tricarico, and Dori Katsionis as we dig into all this and more.

Welcome to Roundtables: livestreamed conversations meant to warm your heart, spark your thinking, and ignite your professional practice.

What are some practical self-care strategies that you can share for that teacher who has zero margin and feels close to burnout?

DAN TRICARICO recommends the 5 Ss: Stillness, Silence, Space, Subtraction, and Slowing Down. These are always free and always available!

LINDSAY TITUS talks about the mindset of self-care: it's about defining what it looks like for YOU, your needs, and your identity. Lindsay points to the 4 As: Awareness (of self, environment), Acceptance (of where I'm at), Acknowledgment, and Action (move toward alignment).

DORI KATSIONIS points toward the 3 Ms: Movement, Mindset, and Meditation. Getting outside is huge.

Every YES requires a NO. What are some things that pandemic educators can be saying no to right now?

Who are the VOICES and INFLUENCES that inspire you in the areas of teacher wellness and self-care?

What are the PROJECTS you are passionate about right now? How can we CONNECT with you?
