Nursing, Stress & the Covid Crisis
Being a nurse is a tough job as it is. COVID-19 has escalated the demands beyond belief. Whether they’re on the front lines, working in other areas, or have been furloughed, nurses are experiencing high levels of stress, which lead to stress-related conditions including sleep problems, anxiety, depression, pain, and even PTSD.
Fear of this surreal situation is understandable and reasonable for both you and your family. This is in direct conflict with a different kind of F.E.A.R. that nurses possess:
Fidelity to serve the patients
Engaged to meet the challenges head-on, Allegiance to other team members, and Reliable to get the job done.
Fear activates the stress response (Fight-Flight-Freeze). Fighting a hidden enemy does not seem possible. Fleeing is not an option for those in the dedicated nursing profession. Freezing “like a deer in headlights” is just not what nurses do.
The alternative is to healthfully ADAPT to the crisis. We all have that ability. It’s a matter of learning to tap into the solution in a simple, easy, and effective Whole New Way.
