Do you feel tired, stressed or overwhelmed? Do you have little time to care for yourself or are looking for new ways to bring wellness to your life? Nurses must be healed in order to heal. Modalities often considered complementary or alternative may offer the rejuvenation in your health and wellness you have been looking for! This session introduces the audience to common causes of burnout and ways in which acute and critical care nurses can find balance in their own lives through self-care practices. Modalities to be examined and practiced include centering, mindfulness, acupressure and aromatherapy. Personal experiences with creative integration and lessons learned are shared. Examples of professional development and personal growth are described.
