10:15-11:15 “Mindfulness and Self Care” Presented by: Dr. Barbara A. Spencer, RN, MA, ANP-BC Mindfulness is the state of being fully present, aware of our self and our surroundings. Mindfulness is a human quality that we possess. In these busy, stressful, unpredictable times, we often become consumed with technology, our jobs, and our families. We fail to pay attention to our present self and care for our self. According to the World Health Organization, self-care is necessary in order to establish and maintain health and to prevent illness. In this session, we will discuss four aspects of health – physical, mental, social and spiritual. We will explore strategies or habits to successfully implement self-care.(.1 CEU Approved)
