WORK EVERY ANGLE
In health care, self-care is any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.
Have you recently become a remote worker? If so, you?re not alone. Because of the coronavirus, there are perhaps millions of workers who have set up shop at home. While your previous work environment may have offered a comfortable, organized workspace and a regular schedule to follow, today, working from home certainly brings a different approach to staying healthy and productive.
If you?re searching for ways to create that same positive environment and work schedule within your home office, there are a few things you can do to stay healthy and comfortable while working from home. These are just a few tips for self care.
LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE
All your life there has been an inner voice offering guidance, gently and sometimes urgently. Sometimes you listened and other times you brushed it aside and thought nothing of it. This voice goes by different names: inner voice, inner guide, spiritual guide, inner wisdom, or whatever you choose.
It?s not a voice you hear necessarily, but a sense or a feeling (though it can be a voice for some). It can be a hunch or fleeting feeling, image, or impression. ?Listen to your gut? has legitimate basis as your gastrointestinal tract is sensitive to your true emotions, providing a powerful and trustworthy indication when determining the right course of action. After all, the body doesn?t lie.
You don?t have to be an intuitive person to experience this?you are constantly taking in impressions throughout the day with your finely tuned senses and processing them. The shift starts when you begin to pay attention to the impressions and your responses to them. With so many enticing stimuli drawing your attention outward, you may have lost touch with your ability to connect inward. Trust that you have this inner guidance, waiting patiently for you to notice?your personal compass to guide you through the tempestuous waters of life.
FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE
For many, a new year brings about a host of happy and hopeful thoughts and feelings. We set these lofty resolutions and feel so much more refreshed and ready to take over the world. Unfortunately, however, this time of year can also be pretty overwhelming for some as we carry over hang ups and disappointments from the previous year, or even the failed attempt at those lofty goals we set just a few weeks prior.
While I’ve tended to identify with the latter group most years, I was blessed this past holiday with the ultimate miracle that will forever change my outlook on life, love, faith, opportunity, and fulfilling my destiny. As the saying goes, there’s no better time than the present to break this cycle and bring about a change in your life and outlook.
