One thought on “5 Habits of Healthy Teachers

  1. Thank you! I enjoy listening to your podcasts on iTunes. This is an important topic as we often neglect our health and well-being because of our work. It’s a pointless sacrifice. Because to be a better teacher, you need to be physically and morally healthy, active, and energetic. Although of course, I cannot call my lifestyle 100% correct, I try to follow these healthy habits.
