A Teacher’s Guide to Staying Healthy at Back-to-School Time (and All Year Long)

This article is brought to you by our friends at Sambucol, the original black elderberry supplement. It’s safe to take daily and provides strong immune system support to help stay healthy even through the toughest season.* Add Sambucol to your daily routine.

 

The beginning of the school year is full of excitement—so many new students to meet! So many Pinterest boards to peruse! Whether you’re teaching on screen or in person, keep your classroom ship sailing smoothly with these common-sense tips for staying healthy.

 

Get enough sleep.

That means no more all-nighters to review assignments and write feedback. (A teacher can dream, right?)

Trying to stop thinking about the classroom issues and go to sleep

 

Eat a nutritious breakfast.

Choose easy meals that you can eat with one hand while driving to school or booting up your online classroom, like a scrambled egg roll-up or a toaster waffle with peanut butter.

Ohhh! Breakfast!

 

Drink enough water.

On average, women should be drinking 11.5 cups a day, men 15.5 cups a day. No problem—everyone knows teachers get bathroom breaks whenever they want. And, yeah, we’re laughing, too. 😂

It's not your break time...

 

Wash your hands often.

With all the practice you’ve had in the past few months, this one should be easy-peasy.

Kindergarten teachers be like "wash your hands"

 

Exercise.

Hint: If you grab some hand weights, leading your students through morning stretches totally counts.

Checking for abs after my workout

 

Cough or sneeze into a tissue.

You’re a teacher, so you’re already used to buying your own when the classroom stash runs out.

Floss and brush your teeth.

You know the drill—good oral hygiene is essential for good health. Bonus: Your pearly whites will gleam on video calls!

Manage your stress levels.

Luckily, these days it’s easier than ever to use your meditation app while teaching class.

Who says teaching is stressful?
