The fall equinox is a moment of perfect balance.
We’re poised between seasons, with summer just behind us and winter yet to come. The hours of light and darkness are exactly the same—just as they are during the spring equinox on the opposite side of the year.
As we watch leaves fluttering to the ground in the fall, we are reminded that nature's cycles are mirrored in our lives. It is an opportunity for you to reflect on what balance means to you, and how you can maintain it.
After the long, bright days of summer, as the weather changes to longer, cooler nights, it is a perfect time for some self-care and self-reflection.
But, some self-care can be expensive – from a splurge on a massage or manicure, the special dessert purchase or going to the movies or attending a concert.
Embrace the free self-care options that surround you!
Reflect on where you are, what you’re doing, and consider the opportunities to change things that create stress and anxiety.
Take a walk in the nearest park.
Delight in the abundance of color in the trees and rich sunsets.
Cook a favorite meal.
Enjoy a hot chocolate or hot tea.
Take a luxurious bath.
Read a book.
Sounds easy, right?
Well, for many of us, self-reflection and growth can feel a little uncomfortable, challenging and maybe even a little bit scary.
We can’t help you with that, but we can take the uncomfortable, challenging, and even scary out of starting IVs.
Our ReaLifeSim IV training tools help current and future professionals develop and maintain competence and confidence in essential IV skills, to provide their best care.
