COVID-19 Keeping Strong
I would firstly like to thank and congratulate every healthcare professional who has put their life at risk, exhibiting true selflessness and perseverance in communities around the world, so that we may remain hopeful during this pandemic. In a time fraught with fear and uncertainty, we’ve bonded together to take the fight right back to COVID-19, and each one of us should be immensely proud of what we have accomplished. We truly are real-life Avengers—the first line of defence against a global threat—waging a war that is far from over.
As healthcare professionals, we are proven advocates, protecting people from all walks of life. But too often we fail to reflect upon how well we look after ourselves. If working in the medical sector has taught us anything, it is that self-care is paramount for one’s ability to thrive. Our ability to do so is reflected in how much we give to others in times of peril. How can we, therefore, better look after ourselves and ensure that we’ll always be at our best? The answer lies in your quality of life, which is inextricably linked to how much time we have for ourselves, and especially to the control we have over that time. Ask yourself: how much time or control do you have?
