Take Time for You
Self-Care Action Plans for Educators
Create an individualized self-care plan based on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. This book provides doable wellness and self-assessment activities and reflection questions for teachers and educators.
- 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.
