STLN2128 Using mindfulness and gratitude for yourself and your students

Presenter: Tanya Whiteside

Teachers invest a lot of personal energy into their work. It is important for all teachers to look after themselves and realise that self-care isn’t selfish. This session will discuss easy ways to build self care practices into daily life such as mindfulness and expressing gratitude which can help increase your ability to regulate emotions, and can decrease stress, anxiety and depression. These techniques can then be introduced into your classroom and support your students to develop mindfulness and gratitude. This session is a must for all teachers following the complex year we experienced with COVID-19 restrictions in 2020.
