You were provided a scholarship to attend the National Holistic Nursing Conference. During this conference, you participated in a self-care workshop and learned skills to increase self-care.
When concluding the day’s activities, the presenters asked you to reflect on your self-care habits and to document that reflection in a one-to-two-page journal entry.
Write a one to two journal entry that addresses the following:
- Using your own words, define self-care and the benefits of practicing self-care as a student.
- Describe at least one self-care skill you plan to start using in your daily health practices. Identify which self-care technique you would use and explain how you would begin using this technique. Do you anticipate any barriers to using this new skill?
- Describe at least one self-care skill you find complicated to implement into your nursing practice and discuss why this approach would be challenging to implement.
