STRESS AND SELF CARE
Our first topic is timely. As a student nurse, a new graduate nurse, and a human being, we all have stress. Sometimes a little stress is helpful to motivate us or heighten our awareness. But often, too much stress is harmful to our physical and mental health. Please watch this brief YouTube stress video.
Let’s engage with each other about this topic. In your initial post, address the following prompts:
- What are your current sources of stress? How might these stressors change over the next three to six months as you begin your new career?
- What are the positive and negative ways you deal with stress?
- What are your goals for improved stress management, and what is your plan to achieve these goals? Incorporate at least two ideas from the posted resources.
Your initial post must be at least 100 words each
