Find something you are passionate about! For me it is dance and
expressive movement arts. Through nursing school, took dance classes
when I could. During the peak pressure times used videos and
basic dance workouts to keep me going. Also, formed an interest
in world music and dance.
Define your passions. And make time for them. You will return to
your school work and clinical experience refreshed. Bikechicky has given
great advice above. Nurses are so busy caring for others, our
self care can slip a notch. Good for her for blowing the whistle
on her coworker! Nuturing ourselves (yes we should eat lunch!)
gives us the strength to care for our patients without putting
our own health at risk.
You can also take short workshops at holistic centers, many offer
nursing ceus for courses. We did during nursing school and we learned
alot about alternative healing methods.........
Good luck and check in again. Tell us what you enjoy and what
nuturing care plan you have designed for yourself!!!!!!!!!!
