You see, I’ve been where you are now! A busy teacher, struggling with my work/life balance and wellbeing. Wondering whether I’d ever get some ‘me-time’ during the week.
Desperate for answers, I came across the Tiny Habits research from Stanford University and decided to try it out in my own life.
Starting off really small, I began making tiny changes to my daily routine. Building in just 5-minutes of self-care in the morning before leaving for school.
It was then that things really escalated for me and I realised that putting my needs first, even in such a small way, was having a positive impact on my mental health. I started to find time for more self-care and began building boundaries for my habits.
My confidence grew too – enabling me to start saying ‘no’ to things that would only add to my to-do list. Small things at first, but over time, I began to realise that, by having concrete boundaries, I could have a better work/life balance.
And that’s what I want for you too, which is why I created Beat Burnout.
