Ep 88: Preventing Burnout & Prioritising Your HealthEp 88: Preventing Burnout &

Are you prioritising your health?

As a busy educator working in the school system, taking care of yourself probably gets pushed down to the bottom of your list of priorities. But this often has a significant impact on your health and wellbeing, leading to burnout. In this special episode, Meg interviews Sophie Scott, an award-winning broadcast journalist and keynote speaker, about burnout and the importance of prioritising health. The two discuss how burnout can occur even in the most fulfilling professions like teaching, the significance of modelling healthy behaviours, and how setting boundaries can help. You’ll walk away from this conversation with the practical tools you can use to prioritise your health and wellbeing today.

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ Why we struggle to prioritise our health.

▫️ The importance of small actions.

▫️ How our wellbeing impacts others.

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“We are just humans and we have a limited capacity.”

Sophie Scott

“You feel like you’re not doing enough because there’s always more to do”

“Asking for support is crucial if you’re feeling burnt out”
