Podcast: Self-Care in Long Term Care – Just Breathe

Programs and Resources; Workforce

​​Last month, AHCA/NCAL released the Self-Care in Long Term Care podcast series. While we know that self-care is important, it is often the last thing we have time for. The Self-Care in Long Term Care podcast series is dedicated to helping you build self-care into your everyday practices by identifying little opportunities to implement self-care. The first podcast focused on why self-care is important and explored the power of “the pause,” a simple, yet effective, tool to help you reduce stress, burnout, and fatigue.  

In this second podcast, the focus is on reducing stress and fighting fatigue and burnout through the power of movement and the 4-7-8 breathing technique. This series is comprised of a variety of short listening sessions, less than 15-minutes, that will help build tools and resources to ensure that you are taking care of the most important person, you.  

The Self-Care in Long Term Care podcast series is appropriate for anyone working in long term care who may be struggling with burnout, fatigue, and stress.   ​
