Because of my trainer and a new online nursing support system, I didn't feel alone. Suddenly I had people around me who were dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle, not just drinking every weekend. When I got into a new routine of meal prepping and made eating right a habit and privilege, my body performed more efficiently in the gym and at work. I felt a new responsibility to myself-I need to eat right, work out, and sleep well to feel healthy.

HNHN reminds me through weekly emails that I am not alone and that others need consistent reminders like I do. The more you're around others who choose healthy lifestyles; the easier it is to continue to choose to be healthy. I'm grateful for an online support system of nurses who have my same struggles and are willing to share their plans and successes with the global network.
