You’ve been working so hard to support students, parents, and caregivers during this time apart and you deserve all the appreciation! That’s why our team at Learning A-Z is sharing some self-care tips and fun gifts to celebrate and thank you this Teacher Appreciation Week!
Set the tone for the week with the right tunes! Music can soothe stress, improve mental health, and even boost the body’s immune system function. We’ve specially curated these 6 playlists to motivate, relax, or help you focus this week.
Sit back and sip some tea! Besides being a refreshing beverage, there are plenty of health benefits to a cup of tea, like reducing your risk of heart disease. Certain teas, like peppermint and chamomile, can even help with stress and anxiety. So keep calm and sip on!
Whether stretching into different yoga poses or competing in the latest push-up challenge, make time to move around. Being active is beneficial for your physical and mental health. When you exercise, your body gets a boost of energy and releases chemicals that can improve your mood. Get moving with our Learning A-Z employee, Jennifer Corujo, with this at-home HIIT workout (no equipment necessary)!
Thoughtful & Thankful Thursday
Jot down your thoughts in a journal! With so much going on, it’s important to stop and reflect on your feelings. Journaling allows you to clear your mind and help you work through your emotions. Use our gratitude journaling template to turn your attention to all the things you’re thankful for!
Unwind from the week and put your feet up! Tune into a TV show or flip open a book for a bit, and then catch some much-needed Zs. Getting a good night’s sleep improves your immune function and lowers stress levels, so when you wake up, you’ll be ready to take on a new day!
