You can fully be yourself in a beautiful relaxing environment for four days and nights with others who truly understand where you are coming from.
As a Maternity Nurse you give yourself totally to the families you work with, physically and emotionally and at times it can be exhausting. You push yourself beyond your limits and long-term this is detrimental to your health. You survive on little sleep. Your eating habits change constantly. You are on alert 24 hours a day even when you are resting. You slot into a household like a chameleon blending into the families needs and wants. You have no privacy and cannot fully be you. You return home to rest but once home there is so much to fit in that you feel like returning to work for a rest and the whole cycle begins with no time to fully recharge.
Imagine a life where you make time for yourself. When you have energy and excitement for life again. Where you learn to do the job you love the way you want to, on your terms. Asserting yourself to put your needs first. A little step at a time.
The realisation of the importance for you to take care of yourself first before you help others will change the way you work. Having the emotional energy to make decisions that benefit you will change the way you live your life.
As an experienced Maternity Nurse, you would think I would have my work life balance sorted. I have found over the years that I have become busier. My work comes to me via recommendations and I often find it difficult to say no. I have fully booked my diary at times and not allowed myself to fully recharge, I have become exhausted.
I always try to leave a gap between jobs but of course when we are expecting babies they don't always come when we expect or families want you to stay longer and again you give your own time away.
I recently attended a retreat. I was actually too tired on the day to go but I packed my things into the car and of course went anyway. It was the best thing I have ever done for myself. It was more than just treating myself.
This house and the space created allows you to truly be yourself, I relaxed properly for the first time in a long time. I left my phone in my room and I forgot about all the things that needed doing or the things I think need doing. It's funny how we can start to stress about the smallest things that need to be done when actually nothing needs to be done. I truly switched off.
I have come home feeling more than fresh, excited to be going to my next job. I have done little jobs that I have put off for months because they felt like chores. I feel literally lighter and excited for life. I know that I won't allow myself to get so tired again and I am putting time for me in my diary. This retreat is for you to make time for you, JUST YOU.
