How do you start your day? Mind FULL or Mindful?
While training healthcare leaders in Emotional Intelligence, one facet we explore is ‘how do you start your day or shift’? How do you show up? Mind FULL? Or, mindful?
When tensions get high, your patient goes downhill, or the stress gets rough, the first pulse you check should always be your own! The first drug you give is oxygen – remember to breath!
Practicing mindfulness when not in stressful situations secures the foundations needed when you later need to call on this stress reducer. For more information on mindfulness, see the related article by Dr. Bradberry.
