As with all healthcare careers, working as a phlebotomist can be a stressful experience. Being responsible for other people’s health and well being is a significant responsibility and the delicate nature of drawing blood is a high-pressure situation.
Many healthcare practitioners, phlebotomists included, find that practicing mindfulness helps to release stress, so whether you’ve only just graduated from our Phlebotmoty school or you’re a seasoned professional, here are some mindfulness resources for the stressed phlebotomist.
Mindfulness is the psychological process of intentionally bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment without judgment, which one develops through the practice of meditation and through other training.
The practice of mindfulness may be beneficial to many people in Western society who might be unwilling to adopt the Buddhist traditions or vocabulary in which mindfulness has its roots.
Western researchers and clinicians who have introduced mindfulness practice into mental health treatment programs usually teach these skills independently of the religious and cultural traditions of their origins.
