#46: Mental and Physical Wellness for Educators

In the kickoff to our Modern Learners Community July 2018 theme of “Refresh, Renew, Relax,” we hand the podcast reigns over to Missy Emler and Lyn Hilt of our Modern Learners team who talk with Dr. Joyce Young and Liza Engstrom from the High Health Network, an organization dedicated to helping leaders harness the power of networks to spread real health throughout their organizations.

Missy shares why this topic is such an important one for educators, and Joyce discussed the work of their organization, addressing common misconceptions about employee health and wellness. Joyce and Liza outlined the 7 Essential Skills for Real Health, and they talked about the necessity of school leaders to not only plan to provide support for the well being of teachers and students, but to also commit to self-wellness in order to lead the changes we want to see in our schools.

We’ll be having month-long conversations with Liza in our community, and we hope you can join us for other health and wellness related events.
