There is increasing evidence on the benefits of incorporating self-care into the daily routines of health professionals. These practices are especially useful for avoiding the build-up of stress and the prevention of burn out. Good self-care practices should be modelled by experienced health professionals and taught to junior staff. However, despite most health professionals understanding the importance of self-care, most find it challenging to build into their daily lives.
