“Self Care is Not Selfish, You Cannot Serve From an Empty Vessel”
Welcome to The PE Umbrella Podcast, episode 67. This week, I am giving you a sneak preview into my thoughts on evolving my interview format in future podcast episodes. Don’t panic! The old favourites such as favourite warm-up and physed advice will all be staying put, however, I am turning my attention to the whole self of being a teacher, not just the ‘teaching aspect’. This episode is a dummy run of sorts as I share my own thoughts on the importance of fuelling your Mind, your Body and also my current thoughts when it comes to teaching! Essentially, if I interviewed myself, these would be my answers!
The thought process behind this episode was to first and foremost test the waters, but secondly, I am really triggered by the quote above ^^^^^ and I’m a firm believer in another quote:
“Practice What You Preach”
You all know that I am not a big fan of the word ‘Practise’, so let’s rephrase that…
“Live What You Preach’
There, much better.
That been said, this episode is a quick stop tour of what helps fill my own Vessel and prevent it from being empty, thus contributing to me being the best teacher that I can. Speaking from experience of becoming that nearly burnt out teacher, I talk about how I live what I teach and fuel my own Mind and Body!
Let’s do this!
