The health professional usually faces inner turbulence when caring for the suffering of others. This article explores the skill of health care professionals in taking care of their own emotional and physical health. Research examined how personal health was self-monitored and how subjects modified themselves and their behavior in order to improve their health condition. Aesthetic authentic competence is an essential tool used in self-monitoring. Cognition, emotion, group dialogue, meditation, and self-writing are all skills used to modify the self.
