AAHFN Self Care Topics
As heart failure nurses, we do an excellent job of instructing our patients on how to live a healthy lifestyle, although frequently neglect to follow our own advice. Eating well, exercising regularly, and stress reduction techniques are of the utmost importance to avoid experiencing burn out. With demanding jobs, raising children, and caring for aging parents, self-care often takes a back seat. Knowing that nurses are at high risk for burn out, AAHFN has put together some self-care topics you may find helpful. Utilizing one or more of these strategies can be beneficial and help to prevent burnout. The tactics are not only stress reducers, but can also be a lot of fun. Incorporate one or more self-care topics to see if you can improve your work/life balance and take better care of you!
