Stress, fatigue, frequent illness, poor sleep quality, nutritional concerns. Do any of these sound familiar?
If you’re like many teachers, you’re getting more demands on your time and energy than you have to give. In fact, if you’re a teacher this is almost certainly true.
So, why do teachers in particular score highly on the stress scale? A 2017 study in the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology points to two main sources of stress that, as a teacher, you’re likely experiencing every day:
classroom stress from disturbances
workload stress, which causes emotional exhaustion
The same study also found one thing that tends to offset teacher stress: better teaching resources. While this may be true, chances are you’re more likely seeing resource availability as an added cause of stress.
As professional teachers, we know what you’re facing.
That’s why we’re offering this course to help you get back in control of your health and energy levels.
We’ve teamed up with Dr. Kathleen Regan, who’s helped many teachers find better life balance through her naturopathic approach. Dr Regan sees cases of classroom and workload stress all the time, and names three other potential causes of stress that her patients have in common. These are:
conflict among colleagues
getting limited time with loved ones
How the naturopathic approach can help
In this self-study course, you’ll take steps to creating a healthier life balance based on the principles of naturopathy.
As the name suggests, naturopathy promotes healing through natural therapies. Naturopathy addresses the root cause of a condition rather than the symptoms, and is based on the body’s innate ability to heal itself. We can optimize this ability by working with our own unique chemistry and finding what diet and exercise works best for us.
Since naturopathic doctors have pre-med degrees and a four-year degree in naturopathy, they can integrate standard medical diagnostics with natural therapies. They offer personalized treatment plans, and are experts in early detection, prevention, and treatment of chronic disease.
By taking this course, you’ll learn how to build your own unique healing pathway and learn new ways to address some of the core issues that teachers report experiencing:
Poor Sleep quality
