Compassionate Care: Identify Your Kryptonite (What Challenges Your Strength?)

In order to remain resilient, we need to know ourselves: our strengths, needs, vulnerabilities, and challenges. The first step in improving our wellness is recognizing our unhealthy patterns and responses.

Things to consider:

  • We each have our own responses to short- and long-term stress. You might be more or less tired, have trouble focusing or be hyper-focused. Physical symptoms can also present themselves – for instance, upset stomach, headaches, or shortness of breath.
  • Notice what impacts you negatively. As you go through your day, take note of things that cause you stress. How do you react to stress?
  • Create a plan for the times life knocks you down. What do you need to return to wellness? Only you can answer that question, but you might find it helpful to brainstorm ideas with others. Create your plan when you are feeling well.
  • Even if you are in a profession where you are helping others, you might struggle sometimes and need help. What superpowers do you need right now? Who can come alongside you to give you support?

“Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax.” – Mark Black
