Omaida Personal Wellness Inventory and Reflection
Every human being develops his self-confidence and inner world, sets new goals and tries to achieve them during the life, in other words, becomes emotionally mature. However, this does not always work. With the aim of determining my maturity, I complete the survey.
Spiritual and Emotional survey:
- Part A. 1. 3, 2. 3, 3. 4, 4. 4. 5. 2. 6. 4, 7. 3.
Total score: 23/28.
- Part B. 1-6: 20/24, 7-12: 15/24, 13-19: 18/28, 20-25: 20/24, 26-30: 16/20, 31-40: 21/40.
Caregiver burnout manifests itself in growing indifference to responsibilities at work and home, feeling of professional failure, and emotional fatigue causing deterioration of the quality of life.
My burnout quiz results are the following:
1. b, 2. b, 3. c, 4. a, 5. b, 6. a, 7. a, 8. a, 9. b, 10. b, 11. b, 12. a.
Total score: 40 points.
According to the quiz assumptions, I should “learn seven ways to find more “me” time” (Scott, n.d., para. 10). In particular, I should give myself five 10-Minute Pick-Me-ups to calm down, focus, and gain the evidence reading something funny, listening to the music, or taking a power nap.
Taking the above quiz and survey into consideration, I would like to create my personal wellness inventory and reflection. I consider that the most important issue is to understand that taking care of you is aimed at feeling happy, harmonious, and joyful. Therefore, I believe I should allow myself the more pleasure: it can be a cup of herbal tea with honey, hobby, or a new friend.

My spiritual and emotional survey results:
- Part A. 1. 3, 2. 1, 3. 3, 4. 2. 5. 2. 6. 3, 7. 3.
Total score: 17/28.

As my results show, I am an emotional adolescent who likewise a physical adolescent knows what he has to do, but feel threatened or preoccupied.
Nowadays more and more people fall in burnout, a state of exhaustion that leads to depression accompanied by a loss of feelings of joy and happiness in life. In order to test myself, I complete the burnout survey.
I have the following burnout quiz results:
1.d, 2. d, 3. c, 4. d, 5. c, 6. d, 7. d, 8. d, 9. b, 10. d, 11. c, 12. c.
Total score: 17 points
According to the quiz results, I am already burned out. Therefore, I need immediate therapy. It might be a vacation or a physical check-up. Of course, it would be helpful for me to visit a doctor.
Perhaps, the stress that leads to burnout and distracts from emotional maturity occurs due to the fact that person has done something without a sense of inner harmony, without a sense of the value of things and of himself too long. Scazzero claims, “emotional health is an experience for you when you are alone and in your close relationships with others” (2009, para. 1). In this regard, I want to learn to take care of my body and mind and build a good relationship in an appropriate way. Moreover, the process would be simple and pleasant rather than challenging and exhausting. I should be aware and take care of everything that I do including dressing, washing up, etc.
