We’ve reached May in a year that will certainly go down in history!
It’s been a tough year to be a GP in Australia with many challenges indeed!
How are you coping? How are you looking after yourself?
This month, 2 of our RVTS registrars, Leigh-Anne Bingham and Jeni Davila Mendez, discuss self care. Leigh-Ann and Jeni give some specific advice on how to do this during a pandemic.
- Acknowledge that anxiety and fear in the current situation are perfectly normal.
- Take some control of the inflow of information.
- Maintain social contact.
- Make time to relax.
- Stay active.
- Practice mindfulness with deep breathing and grounding exercises
- Ask for help if you need to
