PersonalWellness Inventory and Reflection

Myoutcomes of the inventory and spiritual maturity test as well as thatof the caregiver quiz give are converging giving an indication of anovertly emotional person. The outcome only serve to show that I amnot emotionally healthy since emotional health is what an individualexperiences in seclusion and in an intimate relationship with others(Scazzero &amp Bird, 2015). A refined analysis of the outcomesindicates that caregiver burnout did impair my functional ability.For instance, on the question of how often I felt happy, the responsewas “sometimes”. This response corresponds to that in theemotional maturity test ascertaining if I was confident of my innerfeelings, which I coincidentally responded to as “sometimes true”.This trend is reflected across that two assessments painting apicture of uncertainty and where there seems to be clarity, it is inthe negative. Essentially, the self-conducted audit reveals somepersonal weakness and thus an urge to combat compassion fatigue andburnout.

Inorder to achieve this, I have an integrative plan that will ensure Ikeep compassion fatigue and burnout at bay. The most effectivestrategy in avoiding compassion fatigue is to engage in physicalexercises that relieves stress (Potter et al, 2013). To supplementthis effort, I will avoid the usage of chemicals to enhance my caregiving capabilities. I have also decided to resume my normal eating,sleeping and recreation to prevent alterations that can be strenuous.Talking to friends and experts on issues concerning care giving willalso be helpful to relieve me of too much thinking that made me scorelow on both assessment scales. Additionally, I plan to pray andmediate regularly since spirituality helps to build resilience thatis key in care giving (Gold, 2015).
