While many teachers would primarily associate all of their stress with their students and their classroom, there are additional external factors that could be influencing their day quite as much. For example, the foods that they consume have a direct effect on their mood and energy levels throughout the day. If teachers aren’t fueling their body with healthy foods, there’s a higher chance of not feeling their best in and out of the classroom. The same can be said for their hydration efforts, as many teachers will steer directly into caffeine infused drinks rather than strictly water. Just as important as the nutrition and hydration is the activity levels of teachers. Finding time for physical activity after the school day helps release endorphins, which can enhance mood and energy levels. This activity doesn’t even have to be particularly strenuous; even something as simple as walking the dog around the neighborhood can make an immense difference.
