Prologue: Dear sisters, Right at the outset I would like to pay my humble tributes to you and your profession and express my gratitude on behalf of all those whom you serve. Yours is such a profession where there is almost no end to the sacrifice that you make. Most of you work hard; on domestic as well as occupational front! I really admire your patience and salute you for the same. Really you are the chosen ones of the Almighty and hence most privileged.
Secondly I would like to congratulate you for your success in achieving expertise, which is so valuable in healing the ailing mankind 송파스웨디시.
Now before I go ahead I would like to concede the possibility that you could be knowing much more than the contents of this book. Also, you may be practicing Total Stress Management better than me and you may already be healthier than me in every possible way. But this is my humble effort to share with you what I understand and try to practice!
In view of your supreme importance in patient care and in view of the extremely stressful situations you have to go through, it is imperative that somebody cares for you and your health! So kindly appreciate my concern about your well being and instead of believing blindly or rejecting blindly, consider these contents with open mind, verify and accept or reject on the basis of your own experience.
Total Stress Management For nurses working with critically ill patients.
It is good to appreciate that Total Stress Management (Holistic Health Promotion) requires two aspects to be handled. First; is you and second is your environment. Let us consider the first aspect i.e. you. There are five aspects of your being! They are, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, instinctual and physical! It is needless to clarify that these are not watertight compartments and the classification is for the purpose of simplicity in understanding. So, the Total Stress Management (Holistic Health Promotion) involves nurturing these five aspects of your personality!
When you work with patients requiring critical care, you are facing agonies, anxiety, fear, worry and restlessness. You require tremendous spiritual strength in such situations. I am sure you do not lack spiritual strength. But one simple way to nurture or further develop spiritual aspect is imbibing the concept of unconditional acceptance, love and respect for your self. This helps you to explore the SOURCE OF LIFE i.e. SPIRITUAL POWER WITHIN YOU. Invoking this power within you is also called as exploring the healer within you.
