Stress Management and Self-Care
The COVID-19 Pandemic and other events of the past year have been a challenge to navigate on both a practical and emotional level. We are all trying to manage our lives and responsibilities related to work, family or community. It is important to take a step back once in a while to ensure that we are taking care of ourselves in the midst of stressful circumstances. Healthcare workers are accustomed to being caretakers. However, in order to provide the best care for others, we must remember to meet our own health and wellbeing needs. Below are some resources relevant to self-care and stress management.
