Be Kind To Yourself

4f4e1c1b6ac90e2635cb46ebee167bec-huge-anIt's day 4 of the Grow Your Resiliency challenge!

Caring for yourself is not a selfish act, but rather a critical piece of caring for patients. In fact, Provision 5 of the Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements requires “nurses hold the same duties to self as to others.” Think of ways you can make time for renewal in your own life, like going to bed an hour earlier, making time to exercise, or regularly scheduling time to meet up with friends.

Find more ideas in our Self-Care for the Caregiver blog post. Tell us how you make time to treat yourself in our discussion or in our Facebook group.

Find this helpful? Use the social share links on this page to share it with a nurse you know and invite them to join the Grow Your Resiliency challenge.

Missed day 3? Catch up here. Join us on day 5.
