Today I treated a nurse who works in the Neurotrauma unit at St. Mike’s Hospital. Her description of her duties is admiral but also stressful. When you are running on adrenaline, your breath becomes shallow and your body will store tension in your upper body. Especially when you are trying to deflect the emotional aspects of caring for your patients and their family members. Take the time during hand washing to slow down your breath and luxuriate in the brief moment that you are taking care of yourself. Small moments of belly breathing are enough to give you energy and mental clarity to be your best. Realign. Strengthen. Live your Life.
