Using the essays you submitted for the Unit IV and Unit V homework assignments, develop an action plan for your own personal and professional self-care centered around the previously discussed challenges (Unit IV) and hazards (Unit V). Resources are not required, and the action plan should take the form of a three-page essay highlighting the following items: specific actions you will take (goals), timelines for beginning the action, rationale for this action, who will coach and encourage you to reach your goals, how you will know you have been successful in reaching your goals, encouraging steps you will take when the going gets too tough, and the effect the action will have on you professionally and personally.
