Nurses give so much of themselves and regularly chose to put the needs of others first. We know that the practice of self-care is critical for our mental and physical well-being. How can we make that critical move beyond talking about the importance of self-care towards true practice? I encourage all nurses to begin with self reflection. Consider the areas of your life that may be the most challenging and then develop your very own self-care plan.

I believe finding ways to leave work, at work, is the key to avoiding burn out and staying positive even in difficult circumstances. In essence, be who you were and do what you loved to do before nursing, because you are so much more than what you do as a profession.
