The School of Wellbeing Podcast
The must-listen podcast for teachers who are ready to learn a better way of life
Whether you’ve been teaching for a few weeks or a few dozen years, one thing is constant: teaching is TIRING - and if you’re feeling drained, you’re not alone. These conversations, brought to you by people who have been there, done that, and got the stories to prove it, will give you the practical tips and tools you need to make every day a gold-star kind of day.

ENERGY PRESERVATION STRATEGIES
Science teachers will tell you that energy can never be created or destroyed, but it only takes a full day of classes followed by lesson preparations to prove them wrong. The good news is that you can make your energy supply last longer each day with a few simple tips, and this podcast is full of them. Say goodbye to drowsy afternoons and sleepless nights!
BRINGING JOY BACK INTO YOUR ROUTINE
So you got into teaching because it was your passion, but now your whole life is starting to feel like groundhog day? Don’t panic - all you have to do is take back control over the moments that aren’t pencilled in on your school timetable. Your schedule becomes your experience of life, and while you’re here, you’ll learn how to make it a great one.
REDISCOVERING LIFE AFTER SCHOOL
Take it from a former teacher: there’s more to life than spending every night preparing lesson plans for the next day. No matter how long it’s been since you last felt that glorious Friday afternoon freedom, it’s never too late to get it back - and once you do, you’ll be skipping through the school gate with a head full of stories to share with your students.

I was fortunate enough to work alongside Meg for several years and cannot speak highly enough of her professionalism, her positive attitude, her broad-ranging knowledge of and passion for education and wellbeing issues, her commitment to sharing this knowledge and passion with other educators and, above all, her ability to work effectively with people from all walks of life and backgrounds, young and old alike. Students and teachers who have the opportunity to work with Meg should jump at the chance.

Energy By Design was a game-changer. It made me reflect on how I was currently living my life, and how I actually wanted to be living it. Meg inspired me to bring awareness to my choices and make small, achievable changes that had an incredibly positive impact not only on my life but for those around me. I came away from the course feeling able to make better decisions, more confident in myself and best of all, more energised. Meg was kind and compassionate, and her approach to wellbeing just made sense. The course was relatable, practical and based in psychology and neuroscience, with a good dose of warm humour too. There aren't too many experiences that have such a positive impact on your life, but for me completing Energy By Design was formative.

About your host
Hey there! I'm Meg
FORMER TEACHER. WELLBEING EXPERT. PODCAST HOST.
During my teaching days, I was no stranger to burnout - and I watched many of my teacher friends struggle in the same way.
We were so committed to the task of teaching the next generation that we forgot about the most important lesson of all: how to protect our own health and wellbeing.
So when I left teaching, I decided I needed to create a space for burned-out teachers to fill their cups with joy.

You won’t need a calculator or a study block to prepare (as if you had any time for that anyway), and you definitely won’t need to bail up your school careers counsellor for advice. All it takes is a solid commitment to looking after yourself first so that you can pour a little more joy into the lives of your students, and this podcast will set you on the right path.
is just five steps away.
