32. Move Over Teacher Overwhelm

Teacher podcast

Are you a teacher who sometimes feels like everything at school is just too much? Well, guess what? That’s totally normal! 


We’re here to let you know that you’re not alone in feeling overwhelmed with all the things teachers have to do. But just because it’s common doesn’t mean it’s good to stay stressed out all the time. We know that being overwhelmed isn’t fun, and it’s hard to do a good job when you feel that way.


Even teachers who’ve been doing this for years, like us, still have times when we feel overwhelmed. So, we’ve gathered some helpful tips to share with you. 


These are things we’ve learned that can make a big difference when that overwhelmed feeling starts creeping in. 


8 ways to beat teacher overwhelm:

  1. Share your feelings
  2. Take time for yourself 
  3. Wishlist your to-do list
  4. Get enough sleep
  5. Stop multitasking
  6. Clear the clutter
  7. Reflect on the positive
  8. Try some technology free time


Learning to manage that feeling can make you feel better and help you do an even better job in your classroom.
