How can “Awakened” help YOU?

Effective teaching requires serious mental fortitude. Awakened will empower you to develop the resilient, flexible, positive mindset you need to:

  • Consciously challenge the negative thoughts that discourage you
  • Build your tolerance for frustration so you become less ‘disturbable’
  • Live beyond your feelings to stay motivated when you don’t see results
  • Change your perception of setbacks so they feel less stressful
  • Let go of unrealistic expectations, standards, and comparisons
  • Realize a sense of accomplishment in a job that’s truly never done

Awakened provides simple steps to help you feel peaceful and energized no matter what’s happening around you. Drawing upon principles of stress management, cognitive behavioral therapy, spiritual truths, and personal experiences, Awakened helps you develop thought habits that produce an unshakeable sense of contentment, motivation, and purpose. Learn how to renew your mind and take a fresh approach to the challenges of teaching!

See what teachers are saying about the book...

With all the pressures of testing and demands that teachers are under, this book helps you understand that choosing your mindset can change your outlook on teaching (and your life!) I read this before I started my school year and it’s amazing how I don’t get upset with things happen like I used to. Other teachers seem stressed because they don’t have a planning period or now have a certain lesson plan they have to follow, but not me. I choose which thoughts to think about and how to let things go! Angela Watson makes this an easy read and I know she understand because she’s been in the “trenches” with us! For your own sanity this school year….read this book!!


Consider it an investment for a healthy mindset. This is one of the most useful and inspirational books I have ever read–for a teacher, by a teacher. In a profession where everything seems wrong, and nothing seems right, Angela Watson provides a valuable perspective on the damaging thought process behind our negativity…Everything about this book is extremely motivating.

If you have ever gotten down on yourself for not being able to “do it all”, this is a must read. Angela offers an honest and sincere tone throughout this book. She shares research but also personal examples so you can more or less learn from where she’s been. The introduction showcases how she had to learn it all the hard way and I was in it to win it from that point on — because her online persona is that of a superstar teacher, but she points out that she was not always positive and accepting the way she is now. I saw a lot of myself in the scenarios she shares in this book…This book is definitely one that I will share and recommend with new and veteran teacher friends. If you have ever struggled to find balance as a teacher or find yourself being overly focused on what you AREN’T accomplishing, this book is for you.

I think that I am so drawn to Angela’s work because she’s been there. Her work is written in a tone where you kind of feel like you’re chatting with a friend. She isn’t judgmental, she’s realistic. She sets the standard that it is okay to not be perfect because no one is and then offers what has worked for her…Overall I would highly recommend this book because it’s powerful. Realizing that yes, YOU, have control over how YOU feel and only how YOU feel, is pretty amazing. You can’t control anyone else’s thoughts or reactions, but you can control your own. And that is pretty awesome. If you don’t have this book….PLEASE do yourself a favor and go buy it. You won’t be disappointed.
