Short description: When we talk about wellness, we do not just talk about physical well-being, people are paying more attention to mental well-being now. As for mental well-being, it seems that most people pay more attention to the physical and mental well-being of children, but ignore the physical and mental well-being of teachers. So on the subject of teachers’ physical and mental well-being, I would like to elaborate in more detail. First, influences on teachers’ mental well-being comes from all aspects, including students, parents, leaders, and even colleagues. According to many studies, about 45 percent of teachers have poor mental well-being. This is associated with a number of factors, such as lethargy, sleepiness, and irritability. Therefore, the question of how to maintain teachers’ mental health is very important. Developing mindfulness is the main idea I will focus on. In this presentation, teachers can learn how to maintain mental well-being, and identify specific strategies to help teachers improve their mental well-being.
