Welcome to the Methodist Campus Volunteer Gift Shop and Sisters Crossing Gift Shop page. The hospital gift shops are not-for-profit shops with 100% of net proceeds supporting programs and services for patients, visitors and staff at Mayo Clinic. When you purchase from the gift shops you are giving back.
With juggling various responsibilities and commitments in our lives, we can get caught up in the hustle and bustle. Before we know it, we are exhausted, sick or lack the motivation to engage in our daily activities. It can be an endless cycle if we do not learn to take care of ourselves.
Self care is about doing good things for yourself. It is essential to find ways of being good to your mind, body, and spirit and to remember that this is acceptable. You may not realize this, but not only do you benefit from self care, but everyone around you does, as well. If you take care of yourself as best as you can, your ability to care for others increases.
Zen Gardens have been shown to help you reduce stress, practice meditation, offer a sense of beauty to your workspace, along with enhancing creative flow. A variety of Zen Gardens are currently available at both hospital gift shops.
