Mindfulness Practices for Educators and Parents with Danielle Nuhfer
Mindfulness is a topic of great importance as we cope with our surroundings and all of the changes that have taken place over the last 18 months. Normally, we begin to discuss burnout among educators as we approach Thanksgiving, but after the past two years, many educators and parents are already feeling quite worn down to begin the new school year. In this episode, we hear from Danielle Nuhfer, author of the new book The Path of the Mindful Teacher: How to choose calm over chaos and serenity over stress, one step at a time, and dive right into mindfulness strategies to support better self-care and wellness.
Danielle discusses the little things that we can do – for parents, students and teachers alike - to practice mindfulness. In this interview, we learn that the buildup of small practices of mindfulness can have a tremendous impact over time. She also points out that self-care does not have to be something extravagant. It can be something simple that helps us to clear our heads and be present in the moment. Tune in to hear her advice and how we can “choose calm over chaos” one step at a time.
