In this episode of the Teacher Wellbeing podcast I’m sharing gentle reminder for teachers: you are NOT lazy, you are tired. There is a very real difference!

In challenging times, it’s normal to have less energy than usual. Our capitalist culture has conditioned us to connect our worth to our productivity, but your worth is NOT determined by how much you can get done. It’s ok if you feel that you have less capacity right now, that’s to be expected.
You are NOT lazy, you are tired, and there is a very real difference. You are doing a good job in really tough circumstances AND it’s ok if you’re not as productive as usual.
