Stress Relieving Techniques for the Health Care Employee

Learn techniques to manage stress and create a healing environment for not only yourself, but for your patients and surrounding staff as well. Stress is present in everyone's life. The inability to manage stress can lead to physical symptoms and illnesses, emotional issues such as aggressive behavior, irritability and depression, and behavioral signs that result in difficult relationships. Health care has some very unique characteristics that feed our stress. Even if you feel you manage your own stress, we have all been in a work environment where others with poor stress management made our lives miserable. Learning to manage your own stress is the key focus of this topic but the beauty of learning these techniques is that we can create a healing environment also at work for patients and staff. Caring for ourselves is the first step in making our souls blossom.
