Growing Kind knows first-hand the daily juggle a teacher faces, and how easy it is to put ourselves at the end of the priority list. We tend to focus on meeting the physical and emotional needs of our classroom then home, leaving us last, or in some cases, completely left out. This isn’t good enough, especially if we want to create a fulfilling and balanced life.
Practicing mindfulness is one way you can give back, not only to our students and family, but ultimately to yourself. Being mindful means that you are aware and present; your mind (and heart) is filled with gratitude and positivity; and you have greater control over your emotions and how you manage them during stressful times.
Mindfulness is not as complicated as it may sound. It’s making small conscious moments each day to be mindful. Growing Kind’s #mindfulteacherprompts have been designed to help you achieve more mindful moments during your day.
There are 24 activities included in this pack. Pick one out randomly each day or in times of need, and notice over time, how more aware and present you become.
