Your Continuing Journey...

Healing the symptoms of compassion fatigue is an inside job. You've been loyal to your self-care plan, clarified personal boundaries in both your personal and professional life, and now understand your negative behaviors and their origins. As you continue to do the necessary internal work, you will reap the benefits. Your life will begin to change for the better.

In order to move forward on your path to wellness, you must continually commit to authentic self-care that includes:

• Health-building activities such as exercise, massage, yoga, meditation.

• Eating healthy foods

• Drinking plenty of water

• Use natural healing products to care for and heal your body

• Practicing the art of self-management. Just say no

• Developing a healthy support system: people who contribute to your self esteem, people who listen well, people who care

• Organizing your life so you become proactive as opposed to reactive

• Reserving your life energy for worthy causes. Choose your battles.

• Living a balanced life: Sing, dance, sit with silence
