What an awesome concept – an online community for emergency workers! This is great.
I spent 13 years as an emergency nurse and my hubby is a paramedic – self-care and wellbeing are VITAL to both of us. Sadly, when I was nursing, I didn’t take self-care seriously enough. Trauma after trauma left me with PTSD, and in the end, I had to leave the profession. I wish I knew then what I know now! Now, I take self-care very seriously. I practice yoga three times a week, I say “no” to things and people when I am tired or stressed, and I make sure I get plenty of sleep! I have tried an exercise routine but I am not well-disciplined enough with that just yet. Maybe a goal for 2021!
I would love to hear what others do to take care of wellbeing?
