The work-life balance of Teachers: A review


Anna Gigi Eloor and Dr. Sreekumar D Menon


This study emphasises the importance of work-life equilibrium in the teaching profession. It synthesises existing research in order to provide valuable insights into the challenges teachers face and potential strategies to improve their work-life balance (WLB). The paper begins by highlighting the importance of WLB for teachers, illuminating its implications for their job satisfaction, well-being, and overall classroom effectiveness. It systematically analyses the various factors, such as heavy workloads, administrative demands, and the emotional toll of teaching, that contribute to work-related stress among educators. In addition, it investigates a variety of coping mechanisms and interventions proposed to mitigate these difficulties, including flexible work arrangements, professional development, and support systems. This study seeks to inform educational policymakers, school administrators, and teachers themselves about effective strategies to promote and sustain a healthier work-life balance in the teaching profession by conducting a comprehensive review of the current state of research.
