These are just some of powerful TIPS to LESSEN your STRESS as TEACHERS:
1. Do deep breathing. 

2. Find a colleague who you feel you can talk to. Having the sympathetic ear of a co-worker can help ease your frustrations.

3. Have a "Me Time". Enjoy doing things not connected to teaching. This way, you can savor other interesting stuff and distance yourself from work-related stress.

4. Write down a list of accomplishments that you have had as an individual and as an educator. If you are having a bad day read the list to yourself and reflect on all the positive things you have done.

5. Share laughter with your students. Find small ways to not take yourself so seriously. 

6. Keep lotion on your desk. Applying lotion to your hands can reduce stress, and scents such as peppermint can help lift your mood. 

7. Close your eyes and visualize a relaxing scene. 

8. Take a quick walk around the school during breaks.

9. Remember why you teach. Sometimes it is easy to feel annoyed by everyday hassles, or to feel hopeless about your job. Whenever you start feeling overwhelmed, recall why you started teaching in the first place, such as wanting to make a difference in the lives of children.
