5 Self Care Quotes for Teachers

Self care is absolutely vital to your survival as a teacher. And most of know that deep down... but that doesn't mean we don't all need a reminder sometimes. 

1. Take care of yourself first. If you're not taking care of yourself, you can't take care of your students.



2. You can't pour from an empty cup. You need more to nourish your soul than work! Even if you love your job, you need other ways to fill your cup.



3. Self care is not selfish. So many of us went into teaching because we care deeply about others. It can be really hard to take time for ourselves without feeling guilty. So repeat after me... self care is not selfish!



4. Make time for what makes you happy. What hobbies or activities do you really enjoy? Were there things you loved before you became a teacher that you've stopped doing? Making time for those things is important.



5. Be kind to yourself. We are always telling our students that kindness counts, and I'm sure that you model this kindness for them as well. But, we also have to make sure that we're being kind to ourselves! Treat yourself as you would a student.
