After reviewing the book, I strongly suggest that every nurse across the globe purchase a copy, and that every school of nursing make this book part of their required reading. My reasons are two fold: not only does this book help nurses provide cutting-edge, patient-centred care, but it also provides strategies for self-care and personal enrichment at the same time. Very few books offer such rich and meaningful rewards!
I was impressed with the way the author used a mindfulness approach to organize the book and how she encouraged readers to adopt a mindful approach themselves as they work through the book. Nurses are supported to take their time as they move through the content: to work the exercises and reflections into their daily routines so that the practice actually does become part of their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual itinerary. The exercises provided are also excellent tools to use with nursing students. All nurse educators constantly look for ways to help students to learn to nurse with compassion, with positive regard, and relational engagement with their clients. Mindfulness could indeed be the missing link, in this regard.
This book is chock full of meaningful tools and advice that every nurse can benefit from. For example, “Set the intention to give your patient your full attention during each interaction. Unhook from the busyness of your day, come off autopilot, and take a moment to become grounded. Mindful presence does not take more time. Instead, it adds value – it makes every moment count.” This is a book worth reading and living. I encourage every nurse to add it to his or her essential library, but not to collect dust. Open it, savour it, apply it, and learn to live it! The results could be staggering if every nurse became a mindful nurse!!
Although specifically written with the nurse in mind and addressing their specific needs, it also spoke to me as an alternative health practitioner (I read the book in full before gifting, shh, don't tell) and believe it would benefit anyone working in a stressful environment.
This book is not only well-laid out, clear and easy to understand, but gives concrete examples of how nurses can develop ways to care for themselves - easily and simply. It also shows ways nurses can provide deeper quality care and compassion for their clients despite their heavy loads and responsibilities.
Nurses need as much acknowledgment and gratitude that we can give them for their important work. I think this book should be part of the curriculum of every nursing school.
