To be the best teacher you can be, you need to find a work/life balance.
A work/life balance that gives you time away from your marking, your planning and your never-ending to-do list. Why? Because the best teachers are happy, well-rested and ready to tackle anything that comes their way.
But you knew that already, otherwise why would you be here?
You know something needs to change. You know you can’t continue the way you’re going, as it’s starting to affect all areas of your life. Burnout is on the horizon and, even though you hate to admit it, you find yourself wondering if the job’s worth it anymore.
And who can blame you? It’s job where the goal-posts are continuously changing, where you’re expected to do more, be more and try more. Every. Single. Day. It just feels impossible right now, doesn’t it?
And you’re not the only one. A 2019 Guardian newspaper report said that over 25% of teachers plan to leave in the next five years, with 62% citing workload as the primary factor.
So what’s the answer?
There must be something that works for the other 75%? Something that the happy, well-rested teachers aren’t telling you?
And there is! It’s all down to having a plan (and not one that will be inspected by Ofsted!)
A work/life balance plan that gives you boundaries, systems and strategies to turn things around. To start putting your wellbeing first. Heck, to start putting yourself first! Something that I know is long overdue.
And that’s where I come in!
As a former teacher, I know how you’re feeling. I know the pressure you’re facing and how difficult it can be to put your needs before anyone else’s. But I also know that you feel torn. Torn between loving the job and the difference you make, and loathing the job and wanting your weekends back.
I can help you create your work/life balance plan. To learn how to say ‘no’ and to become more productive with the time you have, setting boundaries around your personal time and create effective work/life balance habits you can stick to.
So why not take a look at the options below? You’ll be so glad you did.
