Self-care Part 3

Share This

I’m writing this note while on vacation at a destination spa in Arizona. I visited this place with a girlfriend 3 years ago for the first time. After that first stay I realized that, for me, this was not a luxary, but a necessity. It is the only time and way that I can completely disengage from the demands of my life and work and get centered. There is a great book about disengagement titled The Power of Full Engagamenet by Loehr and Schwartz. The premise is that each of us needs to periodically “disengage” in order to be fully engaged in life. I highly recommend it. I reviewed the book in the July ’05 issue of Nursing Connections(TM)
