Take Care of Yourself: A Course in Well-Being and Self-Care

As an educator in our current climate, you may have been told to “take care of yourself” and to “focus on your wellness” but what are tangible steps to take to fulfill this well-meaning advice? This hands-on course will focus on your overall physical, emotional, and mental health in a way that feels relevant and measurable for educators, paying specific attention to areas of your life that directly impact your work-life balance. This self-paced course is designed as five days of self-care, with the suggestion that you might consider completing one unit per workday, with room for flexibility.

In this course, you will:

  • Learn about the five domains of wellness: Workplace, Social, Physical, Emotional, Societal,
  • Commit to an easily-attainable plan of action for how you will achieve wellness in each domain,
  • Share your own wellness “best-practices” and learn from others in the course, and
  • Reflect on your well-being in each of the 5 domains.
