What is professional fatigue?
Professional fatigue is wearing out from a demanding lifestyle and a lack of self-care. It's good to have a family, to work, to serve God, and to be involved in a variety of activities. However, if we don't take care of ourselves we wear out and can't do anything well. People who suffer from professional fatigue need a lot of time to restore and refresh, some need counseling o other professional interventions. Professional fatigue can be avoided and healed by practicing self-care.
2. What wears you down, uses your energy, tires you out?
What do you do to take care of yourself and recover that energy?
3. What things are important for self-care?
We're going to explain the six components of self-care.
If you have an ailment, you should treat it. Take care of your body as well as possible.
NOTE: Medicine doesn't necessarily refer to a pill or injection. They say laughter is an incredible medicine. The point is that you be responsible to treat anything that is wrong with your body and mind so that you have the healthiest self possible.
Do you take any medicine? Should you take any medicine?
It's recommended to have at least 20-30 minutes of physical activity to increase your heart-rate three times a week.
Aerobic exercises lower your stress levels, give you more energy, and produces endorphin, a chemical substance that makes you feel happier.
Besides sports and other recreational activities, productive activities like sweeping or working in the garden can also be a form of exercise.
Do you exercise? How often? What are your favorite activities?
Healthy eating also gives us energy, increases our immune system, and helps avoid many kinds of sickness.
Try to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, low fat proteins, and cereals (carbohydrates) and limit the amount of sugars and fats you consume.
Make a list of everything you ate today. Are you proud or embarrassed about your decisions? Do you need to change anything to have a more balanced diet?
It's important to dominate various activities in life. Some are everyday tasks. (Brushing your teach, cleaning the house, etc.) Others are talents and abilities. (singing, writing poetry, doing one hundred push-ups)
In the midst of difficulties, doing something you know you can do well can help you calm down. And, if you are able to do one thing successfully, then it will be easier to take on a bigger challenge.
What are some things you do well?
If you're always tired it's probably because you need to rest more.
Sleeping renews the body and mind, helping us have better memory, concentration and precision for daily tasks. This allows us to have a higher level or productivity.
It's also important to practice other activities that are restful and fun: things that give you life. This could be one of the things you've already thought about.
Do you rest enough? Approximately how many hours do you sleep each night? Is it enough?
What can you do to sleep more and sleep better?
What things help you rest and renew your strength? (Drink coffee with a loved one, paint with watercolors, curl up with a good book, go for a long walk, etc.)
- The state of your soul
How can a relationship grow if you don't spend time together? God loves us; he is our fountain of life. We are nothing without Him (Matthew 11:28-30; John 4:1-26: John 15.) How will you help other people grow in their relationship with God if you aren't investing time in your relationship with Him?
How is your soul? Is it dry, thirsty, tired or sad?
Do you need to find freedom from a sin that has impeded your growth and affected your relationship with God and others?
As you might have heard, spiritual formation is one of three focus areas of the CLM. We want to help you grow in your daily walk with Christ. Along with attending a church and other habits you hopefully practice, there are a lot of spiritual disciplines that can help you focus your eyes on Jesus.
Investigate and start to practice at least one of the disciplines from the following list:
Meditate on creation or on one word or name of God
Rule of life
Pray through art
Silence to listen for God
Imagination (put yourself inside a verse or bible story)
Write in a prayer journal or spiritual diary
To incorporate these activities in your life, you need to learn how to manage your time well. Part of time management is being able to say NO and put limits. Time does not belong to you and we want to be goo stewards of everything God has given us.
4. Reflect on the following questions:
On a scale of 1 to 10 how well are you taking care of yourself?
What areas are you doing a good job of taking care of yourself?
What are specific things you need to work on in order to take better care of yourself?
Do you need to say no to something or establish limits somewhere? In what or with who?
Thank you for responding!
