I challenge myself to continue and to improve my current nutrition status. I have started to eat more vegetables and fruits. I am committed to eating at least 3 meals a days, less snacking, although it's not a bunch of sweets. It is mostly something in the CHO family. I must say that I drink plenty of fluids and is a stickler for staying hydrated. I also have to learn to plan my meals for maximum health benefits and weight loss.

For one of my residency sessions I have a dietitian who does a presentation about di stressing with diet. She identifies simple little habits to increase healthier food and nutrition choices that can ultimately have a positive impact on your stress management and overall health. As nurses we tend to wear our neglect as a badge of honor. Bragging about we were so busy we didn’t have time to take a sip of water or eat anything for several shifts in a row. But why is neglect something we’re proud of? Like the stewardesses say if the oxygen mask drops down put it on your own face first. We can’t pour from an empty cup and we can’t care for others if we don’t first care for ourselves. It doesn’t have to be a huge change all at once. Maybe it’s just bringing in a handful of nuts and some flavored water or seltzer instead of three energy drinks and 5 cups of coffee to help us get through the shift.Little changes can go along way!
