Stress and Anxiety can creep up on us when we least expect it. Even if you don't feel it right now,it could be building up.
Modern day teaching is filled with a huge number ofmicro pressures, Often they are so small that you don't even recognise that they are piling up in you as you unconsciously absorb them.
There are SOOOO many things that can affect you during your day as a teacher, such as.
The List goes on!!
Sometimes It feels like every way you turn there is a problem to deal with.
You are not alone. Many teachers we have spoken to feel the same, some dread going into school or feel a small sense of relief when the school gate is behind them at the end of the day
The reason for you starting a career in teaching feels like a distant memory.
It doesn't have to be this way, YOU can change how you feel, how you react and how you cope with the small and large stresses you encounter each day.
Learning simple techniques that can be used anywhere, at any time is a great way forward. Mixing with your peers who could also be facing the same issues or have been through what you are going through is so fantastically supportive. Let others help you, and let’s help others if we can.
The Calming Zone is a safe community for teaching professionals. It’s been launched to help you avoid or overcome any stress, anxiety or overwhelm you may feel or that may be building up in you

Stress, anxiety and overwhelm are constantly flowing up and down in our lives. Being part of our ongoing calming zone for teachers will give you ongoing support and training each month. This will ensure you have a growing bag of the tools, techniques and support you need available to you when you need it.
These will include some simple breathing techniques to help calm your body and mind, meditations that can be done easily through to some yoga stretches along with many, many other wonderful, effective advice. Some will be pretty simple, some will be more advanced but they will all be ones you can use to reduce your stress and feel great!
Members of The Calming Zone team will be providing live sessions each month for you to join.
Here, you will be able to speak directly with them. These live techniques will compliment the trainings already put through the Zone each month.
The topics we will cover are, and will be in the future, broad in scope and variety.
The power of being in a community of your peers is huge and always of value. But for teachers this may be even more so because teaching can be isolating and individual so being able to talk with other teachers, share wins and worries in a safe place is of great benefit. We have a teachers zone and a mangement zone so you can connect with understanding and empathy
We have created spaces in our community to be able to 'ask' without judgment.
This might be in a subject-related group or in the main teaching group.
We want both our Teacher Zone and Management Zone to facilitate ease and openness of expression.
This will allow for an experience of health and growth like no other available online.
Will do some scanning to focus on my “ease” as I take a few minutes for self care! You explain it so well and make it so simple!!
My stress levels fell
I asked Nigel to help me with my high blood pressure - I cannot speak more highly. He calmly and clearly outlined the role of stress in my condition and then gave me a sequence of meditations to help me. I quickly became capable of focusing my attention and my stress levels fell

'My stress levels fell'
“I asked Nigel to help me with my high blood pressure - I cannot speak more highly. He calmly and clearly outlined the role of stress in my condition and then gave me a sequence of meditations to help me. I quickly became capable of focusing my attention and my stress levels fell, my blood pressure now is at an acceptable level. Result! Thanks Nigel!”
The mind is a powerful thing
I have a shoulder injury that causes me a lot of discomfort from time to time, which can be exaggerated by other stress. One session with Laura and I couldn’t believe how good I felt! I know the mind is a powerful thing, but wow, what a difference! Laura is an extremely kind and empathetic teacher, if you’re in distress physical or emotional, reach out to her, you’ll be glad you did...I know I am!

The Calming Zone is something I am very passionate about, I've seen first hand just how devastating stress and anxiety in teaching can leave teachers feeling like they have no where to turn and no one to help them sometimes even leading to catastophic results.
I have an absolute belief that even if you feel like you are all good and that self care and your own wellbeing isn't something you need help with then it's often the time to sit up and take notice.
I truly hope that if you have got this far you will join the team and myself in the Calming Zone so you never have to deal with the full effects stress, anxiety and overwhelm can have on you and your firends and family.
