Teachers need to heal themselves to heal others
Teachers, like healers, are in professions of serving others. As many a wise person has said, we must first heal ourselves before we heal others. Self-care is important for everyone, but it’s especially imperative for teachers who tirelessly work long hours to touch their students’ lives. The better shape teachers are in, mentally and physically, the more likely they are to inspire their students.
The physical stresses of being an educator can really wear on the body. Every day, teachers spend tons of time on their feet-they bend, lean over, squat, grade papers with their head down and look at computer screens for long amounts of time. Many of these repeated activities can lead to muscle pain, but some guided relaxation techniques and stress relief can do wonders.
Massage could help with headaches and Migranes
Headaches are believed to be caused by neck alignment, chemical/hormonal changes, neurological problems, vascular problems, environmental irritants, food sensitivities, and/or blood sugar regulation. Migraines can be very severe and can last up to several days. These headaches do usually come with some sensitivities, such as sensitivity to light, sound, and nausea/vomiting.
