    00:00 Hi Lecturios. Welcome to the short mindfulness break for self-care. Being a healthcare worker can be difficult sometimes and it may feel like it lacks appreciation for all the work you put into it. Here, you're going to take some time to appreciate your self and everything that you do. I recommend sitting down for this meditation. Place your hands on your lap or on arm rests and close your eyes if you wish to. Slow down your breath into a comfortable and relaxing tempo for your body, breathing all the way down into the base of your spine if it feels easy to do so. I'll now start speaking words of appreciation for you. If you feel uncomfortable appreciating yourself in this way, just breathe as you let the words play in the background. Otherwise, you can repeat them after I say them either out loud or in your mind. "I am doing an excellent job. I appreciate all the work that I do. I love being able to help people. I make such a difference in people's lives.

    01:44 I love how much I care about my job and studies. I respect who I am and what I do.

    02:05 I work very hard and I deserve to take time to rest and relax. It's okay to take time just for me. It's okay to do self-care activities in my life. It's okay to appreciate all that I am. I love myself. I love what I do. I am thankful for who I am. I am thankful for my life." Now, take some time to come up with your own words to appreciate yourself or just enjoy the moments of silence and rest. Well done. Give yourself a pat on the back for completing this mindfulness break. Anytime you want a bit of self-care in your life, feel free to come back to this recording. Thank you for listening and you can now continue with your Lecturio studies.
