Over time, this can severely affect a Nurse to the point where he or she may leave the profession....a phenomenon that has become known as "Burnout". Today we will hear actionable advice for Nurses on ways they can avoid the build-up of stress, reduce stress and implement methods of self-care.

    Stress, Emotional Labor and the Holidays

    in Spirituality

    In life we must learn how to eliminate as much stress as possible, minimize problems, and handle or work through broken dreams.  There is no such thing as a stress free, problem free happy all the time life.  We must develop self-awareness and recognize that I am responsible for my own well-being.  Often our stress, worry and anxiety start long before the holiday season begins.  Let’s talk about what stress is, how we can identify it in ourselves, ways to reduce it.
