Filling Your Cup
Self-Care During COVID-19
When Eric Gravenkamp began his profession in the hospice care industry, he was told that he would burn out within 7 years. “[I was] doing what I love,” says Eric. “I was bound and determined to not let that happen to me.”
With preventing burnout in mind, Eric decided to focus on ways he could take care of himself. His philosophy on self-care is centered on the daily practice of being mindful of his energy.
“What fills my cup? What gives me energy?” Eric asks himself. “For me, self-care means finding ways to fill my cup, and minimizing things that drain my cup.”
