So what exactly is burnout? What is nurse burnout and what can be done about it? Stress... 😫 we all know it and we all feel it, but when it comes to nurse burnout, it truly is an occupational hazard. Not only does it lead to safety issues and poor performance, but also health problems and decreased resiliency. Burnout occurs frequently in hospitals due to the demanding nature of the job and in dealing with human suffering. At Progressive Health, we realize how hard nurses work and we want to help them fill from a FULL cup, not an empty one. Our Employee Wellness Lounge's and Employee Wellness Programs work hard to address the issues surrounding burnout. We approach the issue from a positive and empowering perspective that promotes self-care, gratitude, compassion, acceptance, meaning, forgiveness, and ultimately resilience 🤩
#mlk has got us thinking about we at Progressive want to make the world a better place. What does a successful and thriving 2020 means to us? How do we want to show up for ourselves? How do we want to show up in the world? How can we make a difference and make this world a better place? Here are some of the ideas our team came up with: 🌟Slow is fast! Sometimes we go so caught up in checking things off the list and getting it all done, but is that really that effective? Slow and small impacts will win the race! 🌟To build off that, focus on what is important. Where are our values? What are our values? How can we act on those? 🌟Take time for ourselves, practice what we preach! Make time for self-care, traveling, and fill from a full cup! 🌟Growth! 🌟Contributing to global causes, let's create a healthy and sustainable planet. 2020 is the time to volunteer, focus, and be an activist. 🌟Let's take aligned and inspired action. Let's help to create a healthier, happier, and more peaceful world. ... See MoreSee Less
✨Reflecting back from WEEK 1: SELF CARE in our Roaming Wellness Program. ✨ . You cannot pour from an empty cup. At Progressive we want to help teach you methods to enhance your #selfcare practices and create more resilience day to day. . Did you know our daily actions (habits) are either intentional (requiring conscious attention) or habitual (automatic behaviors triggered by cues like washing hands after using the restroom)?
Changing an ingrained habit requires patience and self control. . Self control helps us “lift the load” of life while focusing on our goals. . Be a patient of patience. Impatience increases the speed of life interfering with deep thinking making us quick to judge with a negative bias creating less self control or physical/mental health. . Knowing all of the above and wanting to elicit more self care and slow down a bit, how do we put this into practice? Here are a few examples of how to take back control and build up your resilience: . 1️⃣Intentional Meditation - this is an intentional practice to improve lifestyle and well-being - resting our eyes, heart, and body. If you need a little help with practice, see the link in our profile for a short guided meditation. . 2️⃣”Lift the load of life” - every moment in our day is a chance to be able to choose what we draw our attention to and bring our focus. Take a second to focus your attention on your favorite people, places or things that bring you joy. What do you see? . 3️⃣Sprinkling moments of patience throughout the day focused on your self care. Start with simple things like enjoying your sip of coffee, savoring that bite of chocolate, looking at the scenes around you as you walk to work. All will help build your patience muscle and slow down a bit more. . 👉🏻We’d love to hear your thoughts if you were able to experience Roaming Wellness @rosemedicalcenter or St. Luke’s / Presbyterian OR if you put into practice any of the above.
