Covid stress affects teachers’ sleep, appetite and alcohol consumption

The burnout caused by the pandemic has caused a significant number of teachers to lose sleep, negatively impact their eating habits and lead to physical and mental health problems, according to new research.

a study measuring the professional stress of teachers in Ireland found that 82% reported moderate or high levels of personal burnout during the pandemic. Most of them (79%) said they suffered from burnout after a period when schools suffered sporadic closures and a shift to online learning.
