10 golden rules of mental health wellbeing

Andy Sammons, Head of Department and author of 'The Compassionate Teacher' @compassionteach, shares 10 rules you should follow to help you handle the demands of teacher workload and limit your chances of reaching burnout.

This resource accompanies Andy's article, 'Anxiety and depression, the terrible twins: what they are and how to spot them'.

Example golden rule

5. Be you. Remember, you are you, and not just a teacher. Give yourself the time and space to be that person outside of the building – the key is to create the space to ‘decompress’ and experience life outside of the cauldron. Having experienced it myself, staying in the cauldron only makes things worse.
