Caring Professions Require Smart Strategies for Self-Care

Monday, February 05, 2018
My friends and family know what I do for a living, but some of you might not--I'm a cardiac nurse!  For the first time in my career, I am coming to terms with the fact that my giving profession takes a lot from me, and I need to give back to myself in a more strategic way than I have in the past.  There are some seasons as a nurse where the level of care you give takes you to a level of fatigue that requires help in order to stay on track so you can keep on giving.  Because of this, I am reading Trauma Stewardship: An Everyday Guide to Caring for Self While Caring for Others.  I made it a professional goal this quarter to put into practice self-care strategies so I can keep being the nurse I want to be for all of my patients.  I had heard about this book often in nursing school, but am only just now reading it . . . I will share what I learn here, so stay tuned!
