Teacher fitness is an important goal, but finding time to exercise when you are in the classroom all day can be tough. Squeezing it in before school means getting up even earlier than you do already while trying to work out after school may add a couple of hours to your already packed day.
There are ways for teachers to stay fit by infusing exercise into their school days. Maybe a few of these ideas will work for you!
You can exercise at school if you schedule it like you would schedule a meeting. Think of it as an essential time for you to reduce stress and put it on your calendar to do it. The importance of you doing this is underscored by recognizing that teacher stress and poor health is hazardous to you, your job, and therefore, your students.
Our school introduced The Teacher Health and Wellness Act last year, after several findings including the fact that teachers with high levels of stress are less effective in raising student achievement than their healthier peers. The decision requires the director of the health department to carry out a three-year study exploring innovative approaches that could reduce teacher stress, and therefore, increase teacher retention and well-being in schools.
We know that teachers are often focused on others' needs, rather than their own, which adds to teacher stress. But consider that your self-care does contribute to others' needs by your inspirational example. So calendar those workouts at school for everyone's benefit!
After the meeting, we put up the first session of the workout and the team-building training. All male teachers took part in the workout and it was an amazing workout.
