In this method of care, the dialysate is placed in the belly through the catheter that will draw waste and fluid from the blood. When PD starts, the solution with salt and other additives flow from a bag through the tube into the abdomen. Once the bag is empty, the patient can remove the catheter from the bag and put a cap on it, so that they can move around to do normal activities.

1. Do Something Different. Take a different action in response to circumstances in the heat of the moment such as the pandemic. For example, if I consistently calm myself when I’m listening to horrific pandemic news reports (when I might ordinarily freak out), this calming practice can rewire my neural pathways, widen my resilient zone, and eventually I’m able to listen without automatically freaking out.

Many writers, past and present, have reflected on humility, including Confucius. The ancient Chinese philosopher believed that knowing our place in a larger social world, as well as obeying social rituals and traditions, was the panacea to the evils of his time. In his philosophy, our individual needs and desires are always secondary to what is deemed best for society at large.
