We know being a teacher is incredibly rewarding, but it also has its challenges and can be particularly stressful at times. It’s completely normal and healthy to have a certain level of stress, but you might have experienced feelings of overwhelming, out of control anxiety. Perhaps it’s an imminent Ofsted inspection or a lesson observation that gets your mind going into overdrive.
We’ve collaborated with Neuro Headway to bring you Teacher Take Five – your Ultimate Calm!
What is Teacher Take Five?
It’s a daily dose of calm – just five minutes a day of tailored meditations to help you restore and reboot your mind.
Well we couldn’t stop there, so we’ve also added some powerful podcasts and handy classroom resources!
Five minute meditations
When you subscribe to Teacher Take Five, you’ll get five new meditations released each week, one for each day of your working week and each one lasts just 5 minutes. Each meditation has been created with you in mind, drawing inspiration from established meditation practices. The topics cover anything from a ‘Meditation to calm Ofsted day anxiety’ to a ‘Meditation to stimulate your creativity’.
You’ll also get a short podcast each week, so when you have a bit more time, listen to topics such as ‘Mindful negotiations in the staffroom’ and ‘Riding the waves of change’ to feel inspired and refreshed.
Handy classroom activities
Mental health and well-being is an important topic for our class as well as ourselves. We’ve created some 10 minute activities that you can do with your children to help them to be more mindful. And due to popular demand, we keep creating more!
