How to create simple habits of rest & self-care that will truly change your life (free podcast)

By Angela Watson

This week on the Truth for Teachers podcast: A free training to help teachers prioritize self-care.

If you’re a teacher who always put everyone else’s needs before your own…

If the only time you get for yourself is late at night when you really should be sleeping…

If you know you need to prioritize self-care (eating well, exercise, hobbies, getting rest) but just haven’t been able to find time

This free training can change EVERYTHING.

You see, the problem isn’t so much about a lack of time, but about a lack of habits that fit your lifestyle.

And that’s GOOD NEWS, because creating better habits is pretty simple once you understand a few foundational principles (and how to adapt them for your personality.) You can start prioritizing time for yourself today and see results immediately!

As you watch or listen to the training, I’ll teach you step-by-step how to:

  • Choose a self-care habit that’s significant enough to make a difference but easy enough for you to stick with when you’re super busy
  • Understand your own temperament so the way you establish habits will work for your preferences (i.e. familiarity vs. spontaneity, baby steps vs. dramatic results)
  • Apply 5 keys to ANY habit to ensure it creates permanent change instead of a temporary fix
  • Get ongoing support with your habits and create more time for yourself even when school is back in session

You’ll be able to walk away with a deep understanding of how ONE simple habit of self-care can start countering feelings of exhaustion and overwhelm. Discover how changing the way you think about taking care of yourself can make a difference right away AND help you establish sustainable self-care habits that work for a lifetime.

  1. This is one of the most useful podcasts I’ve listened to. I particularly liked the section where you used questions to help figure out how to make the habit suit your personal preferences. Thank you for putting this together – it was motivating and energizing to listen to the Sunday before I head back to school.

  2. I am so confused and sad because I started this episode a few days ago and it completely shifted my thinking and mindset around my daily life and teaching practice, when I logged back on to listen to the rest of it it was gone. And I mean gone, like I’ve been searching endlessly for it on iTunes, various podcast apps, the internet etc. and I cannot find it anywhere. Was it a fluke that I got to listen to the first half?? It was only two days ago!?

    1. Oh no, I’m sorry! This was a summer-only offering and it was deleted on October 1st. I will be revamping it and re-releasing it again in a few months. However, if you send me an email to info@thecornerstoneforteachers.com, I can send you the original audio file so you can continue listening. Thanks for letting me know it was so valuable for you!

  3. The link says that it is not available. Would you post the link again. I could really use this podcast this week! Thank you!
