Thich Nhat Hanh (via classicalconditioning)
- checking breath sounds, but forgetting to take a deep breath
- making sure patients follow nutritional guidelines, but ok with grabbing crackers and a swig of coffee for a meal (maybe; what’s a ‘meal’?) for ourselves
- keeping bodily functions going on those around us, but doing “the 8 hour bladder-buster shift”
- doing 4 things at once, all proficiently, and charting about them later, but having no concept of where time went
I think I see a pattern here. Slowing down and being aware of the present is a mighty challenge.
