For nurses and other healthcare professionals, the burden of care can be heavy, even in the best of times. Add the pressure of a pandemic and a strained healthcare system, and the weight can feel overwhelming.
That is why self-care, in particular, is so important. Important, but not necessarily complicated. While self-care can be as involved as a spa retreat or a weekend getaway, it can also be practiced between shifts, on the commute, or in a breakroom.
