Self-Care Activities and Action Plans for Teachers and Educators Using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Positive Psychology
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.
Embrace imperfection as you develop your own self-care plan:
- Understand the challenges to mindfulness for teachers and how Maslow's hierarchy of needs comes into play in your personal and professional life.
- Design action plans so you can meet your own physiological, safety, belonging, esteem, and self-actualization needs and, finally, transcend and connect with something greater than yourself.
- Take surveys and perform a daily time audit to determine how well you are meeting each of your needs.
- Use the journaling space and self-reflection questions provided throughout the book to reflect on your implementation efforts.
