Free Calm Premium for Teachers!

by - April 02, 2019

First of all, I just want to preface ths post by saying that this is in no way sponsored or paid for by Calm. I just personally love this app, so when I found out that they were offering free Premium access for Teachers, I knew that I had to share this with you!

If you're like me, you'll try anything once! When I heard about the Calm app, I was skeptical. I have never gotten into meditation much. However, when I heard about Sleep Stories, I had to give Calm a try. I have a hard time falling asleep because I find it difficult to shut my brain off long enough to fall asleep. Sleep Stories are very calming and give you something other than your day today or what's coming tomorrow to focus on. The first Sleep Story I ever listened to was the trial story Blue Gold narrated by Stephen Fry, and I fell asleep in about five minutes.

Calm also offers a whole myriad of meditations also, and these are a great way to unwind after a very stressful day (especially now that testing season is upon us!). These meditations can also be used in the classroom during brain breaks to give students the opportunity to recharge and reset.

Apparently, the folks at Calm agree with this because they are offering access to their Premium membership to teachers for free! This is very exciting because a 1-year membership is around $75.

You can get more information on the free membership for Teachers by following this link and filling out a very short form. The folks at Calm will review your form and contact you with information regarding accessing the free Premium membership.

I am excited about the prospect of using Calm in my classroom, especially now that we are in the midst of state exams and their stress level is very high. Taking the time to just relax and de-stress could be extremely helpful. If you have used Calm or other meditations in your classroom, leave a comment below and let us know how! I am dying for recomendations!
