As Veterinary professionals we often overlook the importance of our own self-care due to our demanding jobs. As we move through some of the busiest and most challenging times our industry has faced, it is more important than ever to stop and go inwards and focus on our wellbeing to maintain our resilience. Our own self-care practice can be a really easy way to do that when not over analysed. Before we start, we will take a few moments to participate in a short mindfulness/grounding exercise, if you choose to participate, if this isn’t for you, there will be no pressure to participate.
We will talk about ways to make allocating time to our own self care practices less daunting and more achievable. We’ll discuss what others do as part of their self-care routine with the aim of inspiring you to try them or something similar. We’ll also explore findings from a survey I conducted in 2019 of veterinary nurses and their self-care.
