  • Take Time For You: Self-Care Action Plans for Educators

    by Tina H. Boogren Year Published: 2018

    Take Time for You: Self-Care Action Plans for Educators (Using Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and Positive Psychology) by [Boogren, Tina H.]

    The key to thriving, as both a human and an educator, rests in mindfulness, reflection, and daily self-care activities. With Take Time for You, you will discover a clear path to well-being by working through Maslow's hierarchy of needs: (1) physiological, (2) safety, (3) belonging, (4) esteem, (5) self-actualization, and (6) transcendence. The author offers a range of manageable research-based strategies, self-care surveys, and reflective teaching questions that will guide you in developing an individualized self-care plan.

    "Two Feet One Breath"

    Before starting class, try “two feet one breath,” an evidence-based awareness and burnout prevention practice described in this Well article about doctors. For five seconds, feel your feet on the ground and take one conscious breath, feeling the sensations of breathing. To stay focused on the exercise, you might even say to yourself, “two feet one breath.” Repeat 3 times.
