Personal Wellness Inventory and Reflection

After taking the inventory survey, my results showed that am an emotional adolescent.
According to this category, I do not like to be questioned; I make quick interpretations and
judgments on the behavior of other people. I keep records subconsciously on the love I have
shown people, at times I am too busy to nourish my spiritual life, and I talk in little silence when
praying or listening to God.
From the results of my burnout quiz, I found out that am a feverish type. This is a
category that is characterized with a high risk of burnout. It is essential for us to address burnout
since it can result in diminished health, poor work performance, and psychological distress. Even
more significant, burnout can affect the quality of care that clinicians provide to the patients
(Romano et al., 2013). As a result, it is crucial for healthcare practitioners to know the signs of
burnout and how it can be overcome effectively.
Burnout out is common. It can however be reduced easily through the following. I will
start by addressing workplace stress. Romano et al proved that employees can perform better

when they have proper facilities and enough staff support (Romano et al., 2013). I will ensure
that I have enough time to rest between shifts.
Employees are less likely to burnout when they are able to solve their daily challenges
with good cheer and competence. Therefore, I will visit counselors and stress management
workshops whenever I feel I have concerns from work or home. It is also important to manage
emotions. It has been proven that workers that make an effort of managing their emotions are
less likely to experience job burnout compared to those who cover up what they feel or even
pretend to possess emotions they do not truly feel. For instance, I can take time daily or weekly
and ask what I feel and what can make become more in tune with my emotions.
Spiritual nourishment is an important aspect on the general well-being of an individual.
People should therefore, design strategies of improving their spiritual being. Some of the
techniques that I can use to promote my spiritual well being include participating in Bible
studies, engaging in personal prayer, engaging in community activities, and maintaining worship
experiences from time to time.
