Use the Cycle of Reflective Practice in this module to frame and reflect on your current self-care routines and how they can be enhanced during advanced graduate studies. Utilize the seven pillars of self-care in the El-Ost et al. (2019) article.
Write a two-page reflective journal using the following prompts:
: Describe your current self-care routine and then describe your ideal self-care routine (if time, money, etc. were not a factor).
: Reflect on your current feelings about your routine and your overall wellness. Are there areas of stress in your life, etc?
: Evaluate what you do well in terms of self-care and where you could improve.
: Analyze what you would need to do to move your current self-care routine closer to your ideal routine.
: Conclude with what you do well with self-care and where you need to improve (
draw on SWOT from Module 1 to assist here).
Action Plan: List 3-5 steps you plan on taking to achieve your ideal self-care plan with a timeline for implementing these steps.
The comments should be phrased from the perspective an doctoral candidate going the process of obtaining this degree. I will attach my SWOT analysis as well.
I will include scholarly sources below and you may also include other scholarly sources from peer-review journals, etc.
