Resources and tools are available in different educational contexts to help improve the cognitive, social, and fiscal dimensions, as well as the well-being of students. Therefore, education will be an essential vehicle for the overall development of young people. Likewise, psychosocial factors are essential for the improvement and treatment of physical and mental health and academic performance. Therefore, from an early age it is necessary to work on healthy physical habits, learning strategies, and psychosocial factors such as psychological well-being, motivation and emotional intelligence, among others. In this way, the emotional and psychological state of teachers will have a key role during the teaching and learning process.
Through this Special Issue, the current status of healthy living habits, academic performance, and psychosocial and emotional well-being in the educational field will be established. Specifically, the aim is to understand the relationship between psychosocial factors and their association with health, well-being, and the teaching-learning process. As well as determining the psychosocial status, health, and quality of life of teachers, observing the implicit repercussions in the teaching process. This issue is open to descriptive and experimental studies, systematic review, and meta-analysis that provide new knowledge and/or develop a current and interdisciplinary perspective. Emerging methodological proposals in the educational context that pretend to consider physical and psychosocial health in the different educational stages are also admitted.
