Tool helps you foster resilience
The stress hormones, thoughts, emotions and behaviors you experience at work can build up in your body throughout your days, weeks, months and years. To help alleviate some of this, Asante has developed a Going Home Checklist. It’s a reflection and cognitive tool to help you create a habit of closure and self-connection at the end of your work day.
The checklist helps you recognize the stress responses unique to you and encourages you to take a moment to enlist healthy coping. By engaging healthy coping, we can release or metabolize stress so our energy can go toward recovery and restore wellness and health.
By enhancing our personal resilience we can more easily adapt during adversity and trauma. Three protective factors that contribute to resilience:
- Individual skills — your relationship to yourself
- Attachment and belonging — your relationships with others
- Connection to something bigger than yourself — a sense of purpose, collective humanity or spirituality
The Going Home Checklist addresses all three protective factors in just a few minutes of reflection. To download the checklist, click on the image above. You can find more information on well-being and resilience on the new Wellness Resources page at myAsanteNET.
