Although the following section consists of only one chapter, it is paramount to the book in that a ‘healthy body equates to a healthy mind’. As such, if the body is not in tune, this will have a negative impact on the psychological strategies we discuss in this book. Furthermore, we are sure you are aware that teaching is a physical activity! You can be on your feet for eight hours or so during the day. Consequently, the section examines a number of related areas to ensure continued health and optimum performance in the classroom.
