Professor Sir Carry Cooper, of Manchester University, one of the world’s leading authorities on health and well-being in the workplace, recently told the TES that teaching is constantly in the top three most stressful professions. “The hours are long and antisocial, the workload is heavy and there is change for change’s sake from various governments”.
So I shouldn’t really be surprised that I’ve spent the last 6 months losing the battle of work/life balance or that it took its toll on my health. I’m glad to say that I’m back on the right track health wise and my blood pressure is going down now (not racing up). In an attempt to restore some normality to my work/life balance I’ve decided to join BlogHer’s November NaBloPoMo.
