Reducing Teacher Burnout Tips

Thomas B Burnout

Thomas knows burnout needs to be spoken about. He witnessed his mentor burnout in his NQT year.

In this blog, he highlights warning signs to look out for and ideas to help.

Things like: Negative attitude, Fatigue, Brain Dead, Appetite change, Not interested in work, Anxiety.

Everyone has times when they have more to do than normal or are more tired than normal. Thomas also shares ideas on how to ease workload and reduce the risk of burnout.

His tips are:

  • Reduce sensory overload: lights and sounds on a daily basis. This may include taking a break from social media.
  • Make a priority list. What’s essential for the day. What isn’t?
  • Keep goals visible. The above will help you keep them that way.
  • It’s okay to not get every other thing on the list.
  • There will be times where you’re productive. Other times may just involve taking time for yourself.
  • Sleep! I can’t express the importance of taking that seriously.
  • Don’t let others make you feel bad for how you’re feeling.
  • Drink more water. Believe it or not, this is a weird one that is really conducive to reducing feelings of mental fatigue.
  • A dependable partner can really help as a support system when you feel overloaded.
