Thanks for this! I’ve been practicing meditation since the beginning of this year! It has helped me tremendously! More nurses should incorporate it into everyday life
Right on!! So glad to hear that it is helping you. Thanks, Revlon.
Nice….I was at a conference last week and the topic was on Integrative Medicine. The speaker did a similar exercise. In reading the program evaluations, this was the most popular session of the day as it focused on the individual. In nursing and in other healthcare disciplines we have so much stress, that we forget to take care of ourselves. Good work Elizabeth! Love the innovations you use to inspire us.
This is such a great and safe method for de-stressing. Nursing is a very stressful and demanding field. I did this exercise after my shift and I felt so relieved after. Keep it up 🙂
Awesome, so glad that it de-stressed you after your shift. Thanks so much!
Thank you Elizabeth for the reminder that it can be as simple as coming back to breath! I find myself in all the states you described at the beginning as I work to get my biz going but will keep this in mind!
Awesome, glad you enjoyed the practice. Thank you!
