There has never been a time in history when educators have felt such overwhelming levels of stress, burnout, and exhaustion. Still, we depend on teachers to be a positive guiding force in our children’s lives - often playing simultaneous roles as educator, parent, mental health counselor, and caring friend. For educators to fulfill these vital roles, it’s abundantly clear that they need to develop resiliency both inside and outside the classroom.

Written by fellow educator and mindful self-compassion expert, Lisa Baylis, MEd, this book provides educators with simple, accessible, and easy-to-use practices that will inspire them to care for themselves - instead of adding to their chaos - so they can continue doing the profession they love.

Within Self-Compassion for Educators, busy and overwhelmed teachers can learn how to:

  • Reduce feelings of shame, criticism, and self-doubt
  • Anchor themselves to the present moment
  • Develop greater compassion for themselves and others
  • Mitigate the effects of chronic stress and develop resilience
  • Cultivate a sense of gratitude
  • Practice self-care routines that create sustainable well-being
  • Avoid exhaustion and burnout
