Checking In.... Monday, April 20

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 20, 2020

 

 

How Are You Doing?

How are you sleeping?

"It’s very important to set aside enough time to get an adequate amount of sleep," says Dr. Lawrence J. Epstein of Harvard University. Even if real life stands in the way of achieving the perfect sleep routine, making just a few small changes can improve your sleep dramatically.

To learn how getting better sleep helped a night shift nurse improve her diet, fitness, and overall health, read Barbara's story.

Even if you are not working a shift, you put your health at risk when your sleep is not sufficient. Improved cardiovascular health, better weight control, and lowered risk of diabetes are related to getting a good night's sleep on a regular basis.

 

 

Tip of the Week...

Follow the 20-20-20 Rule

If you can't escape sitting behind a computer, at the least give your eyes a chance to relax. Follow the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes look at least 20 feet away from your computer screen, for about 20 seconds.

There are many options for apps with timers you can set to remind you. Get ready to stare off into the distance. Your eyes will thank you!

How Are You Doing?

How and what are you eating?

As a nurse, you already know what you eat can drastically impact your mood and levels of energy. During times of stress, this becomes more important than ever. You know what you should be eating to nourish your body. Now's a great time to put that knowledge into practice.

Don't forget to drink water!

 

 

Tip of the Week...

Take 5 minutes every few days to do a brief body scan

Awareness of feelings and sensations in the body can lead to an increased ability to function with stress, tension, or pain.
