The profession of teaching requires a lot of physical and mental stamina. On this teacher’s day, we would like to share some tips for the hardworking educators of our community to help you maintain optimum levels of energy and productivity while you make your indelible impact on the society-
- Eat a fulfilling breakfast- As your day starts earlier than many people, it is important, to begin with a healthy and nutritious breakfast that helps you stay active and energized for a long period of time.
- Carry healthy snacks- Working for long hours can make you feel hungry and exhausted. Make sure to carry healthy snacks such as roasted channa, makhana, nuts, or fruit to munch in your break time.
- Stay hydrated- Drinking water frequently not only keeps you fresh and energized but also does good to your vocal cord by lubricating it and aiding in the production of mucus.
- Correct posture- Maintain correct posture while sitting and standing to avoid spinal and neck problems. In case of long hours of standing, take a break in between to stretch or sit every now and then.
- Use 20-20-20 rule to avoid eye strain- As teachers your routine involves a lot of near intense work like reading and writing, often in front of digital screens which tends to cause strain in your eyes. To avoid this, start following the 20-20-20 rule,i.e. look way from your screen every 20 minutes at a distance of 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
- Allocate some time for self-care- In order to be able to deliver the best to your students, it is important to take care of yourself by indulging into hobbies or activities or that rejuvenate you like meditation, exercise, nap break, spending time with family and friends, etc.
