All of this combined with the fact that many teachers are at home with other responsibilities; some are physically isolated, juggling the work constraints of a spouse, or the demands of children at home with them. In addition, the ongoing stream of pandemic news keeps teachers in a state of hypervigilance.

These conditions puts enormous pressures on the daily work of teachers. It is normal to feel overwhelmed by these circumstances. Therefore, it is imperative to take concrete and immediate measures to preserve our well-being and maintain our work productivity.
