What’s working for me? Though I struggle with this, I’ve chosen (most of the time) not to pick up the neverending overtime shifts I’m inundated with requests to take. I work hard to remind myself every day that I can only do my part, and I need to stay healthy to do any part. I try to keep my daily meditation and prayer practices up, exercising on my days off, taking part in JH’s zoom support groups, and finding joy wherever I can. And I stay grounded in my core values daily, so that, no matter what’s going on around me, I am staying congruent and living with integrity. Sometimes that means speaking up and sometimes that means letting something go—I’m learning as I go—but that returning to my values throughout each day keeps me more whole and less depleted.

Hi Kara:

Thanks for sharing your story. Can you tell us more about JH's Zoom support groups? How does it work? How does it help you?

I'm also curious about what happens when you say no to overtime. Do you get pushback from your superiors? Your co-workers? What are the ramifications and how have you handled those?
