Spring is a wonderful time to rid your life of what no longer serves you and focus on what lights you up! 🌷
Self care is talked about ad nauseam, especially among the nurse tribe, yet seems so far fetched for many nurses. I believe much of this is due to a mindset that many nurses share. That is, taking care of others, not ourselves is way more comfortable. It’s “safer", even though we know it’s slowly killing us.
How dare we actually make time for ourselves? If we are to be great “care takers” we must be role models and walk the talk.
It’s time nurses prioritize care of ourselves without shame or guilt. No bones about. End of story. When we put our own care first, we become far more able to live in a way that is not only fulfilling, but actually good for us.
First you must decide you’re worth it and then you must create immensely strong boundaries and decide what’s non-negotiable for your well being.
Self care has been part of my daily life for as long as I can remember, exercise is coded into my DNA (I actually love exercising) and I adore food and view it as sacred.
However, about 7 years ago I realized part of my self care routine was lacking seriously, although I couldn’t put my finger on what that was. I was happy and life was good, although something was missing. It turns out, my spirit and my spiritual health needed some much needed attention!!
I have added ways to honor and nourish my spirit into my self care routine. These are the principles I teach in my online course, Divinely Guided. It really is a course in awareness and energy. You can’t change something you’re not aware of. They are the ideas and tools that helped me complete my self care routine of mind, body, and spirit. I have more energy and creativity than you can shake a stick it. Oh, and I am having a blast in life and work.
Everyone is different and on a different journey and it is very important to honor your journey. As far as I can tell, there is no separation of spirit from physical health and well-being. So, to be optimally well in my book, my spirit must be nurtured as well.
