Offered as individual 1-day sessions, each component in the series focuses on one of The 4 Dimensions of Educator Wellness:

  • The Physical dimension of wellness represents the most essential needs for educators. In this session, you are invited to measure your physical wellness progress in three distinct routines: food, movement, and sleep.

    • Learn how each of the three routines interconnect to impact your energy.
    • Access research-based strategies for physical self-care.
    • Gain a better understanding of your physical wellness and create a self-improvement action plan.
  • The Mental dimension of wellness represents the need to maintain manageable levels of stress while staying highly engaged in our busy lives. During this time together with fellow educators, you will tap into routines that will help you avoid the out-of-control, exhausted feeling that often accompanies prolonged stress.

    • Discover fresh ways to build strong relationships and social connections.
    • Find value in incorporating vulnerability and active, nonjudgmental listening into your daily work routine.
