In addition to paying proper attention to their basic needs for nutrition, hydration, sleep, exercise, and emotional and spiritual refreshment, teachers also need.
Belonging: Teachers need to feel positive connections with other people, both in school and outside school.
Significance: Teachers want to know that they make a positive difference through the work they do.
Positive engagement: When teachers enjoy their work, they have great energy and passion for their teaching.
Balance: Healthy teachers set boundaries and create routines so that they can have rich lives both in the classroom and at home.
Anderson devotes a chapter to each of these needs, describing in frank detail his own struggles and offering a multitude of practical tips to help readers find solutions that will work for them. When teachers find ways to take care of their own needs, they will be healthier and happier, and they will have the positive energy and stamina needed to help their students learn and grow into healthy adults.

Great book for teachers...I listened to it during my hour commute to school. Every day after listening, I walked into my classroom with such a great attitude. Thanks! I'll be listening to this book again!

Highly recommend for all teachers!
I enjoyed reading this book at the beginning of my 6th school year. It reminded me of things I already try to do to keep my life balanced between work and home, and suggested other new things to try. It's only 4 hours long, so it's easy to listen through the whole thing in a few commutes to and from work. Fellow Teacher friends, check it out!
