This series is a follow-up to Dr. Jennifer Wheat Townsend’s free workshop in May, Looking Forward to a Year of Renewal and Rejuvenation: Emerging from the Pandemic to Focus on Educator Well Being.
Session 1: We Are In This Together
In this overview, we’ll focus on four aspects of our personal well being—nutrition, fitness, sleep, and meditation—and why this is important to bring our whole selves to all that we do. You’ll begin thinking about your needs and what we can build together to address those needs. Then you’ll start creating a self-care plan and goals.
