nursing, rest, self-care, spiritual care



  1. Haddock, Katelyn


ABSTRACT: Nurses often juggle multiple roles and responsibilities that can result in an overfull life. An overwhelmed schedule can lead to unintentionally becoming distanced from Jesus. The author suggests that true self-care includes proper balance of one's spiritual life with God. Three interventions can rebalance an overwhelmed life: seeking regular quiet time with God, prayer discernment about schedule decisions, and recognizing contemplative moments each day.
