Here are some resources for staff to support their wellbeing
Rethinking Rest Guide
This resource has been designed by the Mental Health Foundation to be used by staff within education supporting children and young people, however, the content is relevant to anyone wanting to find out more about the different types and ways to rest.
Often, it can feel like there is not enough time in the day to complete the mounting tasks ahead of us, usually with something or someone requiring our attention and time. We may feel like there is little to no time for rest.
Yet, no matter what our work schedule or personal situation might be, creating opportunities to rest is important, not only for our physical health but our mental health and wellbeing too.
The Rethinking Rest Guide will walk you through the different types of rest, including:
Rest your body
Rest your mind
Rest your ‘heart’
Rest your ‘soul’
Rest your connectivity
Rest your senses.
For each type of rest, we give tips and activities to try, as well as links to further resources you may find helpful.
