Corky Pickering: Self-help books for men

Corky Pickering: Self-help books for men

Self Help
Maybe it’s a gender thing. Men don’t seem to talk much about their personal problems. Maybe that’s why most “self-help” books appear to have been written by women. The ladies are generally more nurturers and like helping people, while men appear to be more solitary when it comes to internal issues. Sure, they’ll join you in a beer or help get your lawnmower started, but they’re less likely to bare their souls.For me, a big part of that male, solitary existence translates into internal reflection. I’ve always kept my eyes open for books that might help me to understand the universe, my place in it, and to make me a happier and better person. I’ve been reading this stuff for over thirty years and have something of a collection. Most of...

EMS providers must practice self-care to achieve post-traumatic growth

EMS providers must practice self-care to achieve post-traumatic growth

Self Help
By Sara JahnkeWith the thousands of first responders who have been called on to help with the natural and man-made disasters, it’s more important than ever to pay attention, not just to the response efforts, but to the responders themselves.Disaster response – whether it’s a hurricane, an active shooter incident or a terrorist attack – is particularly challenging because it has so many layers. In Houston, for example, many of the first responders were not only facing the trauma in their communities, but also were managing the risks and losses their families, friends and neighbors were facing.  ...

Self Care Habits When You're Travelling With Work

Self Help
What are your self care habits when you’re away travelling with work? Many people have great self care habits. But these same people fall short with their self care habits when away travelling with work. Why? Usually its because self care habits are left at home when travelling. Work takes over.  Things are prioritized. People are demanding of your time. There’s no time to take care of your self, or to manage those emotional storms that work can create. Or so you think. Self care can happen while you are away working. Self care doesn’t depend on where you are, but on what you can do or are willing to do to take care of yourself. The most important relationship you’ll ever have is the one you have with yourself. Self care is self love. By taking care of your...
