I know sleep is the foundation of all physical and mental health. I would even say it is a platform for spiritual health as well, if we count prayer and dreaming as sleep activities.  And I know  people should get 8 hrs or so of sleep ( which i usually do).  However, some of my activities prior to bed time are not allowing me to sleep through the night, ie sipping ...

I  am committed to rest. I prioritize every aspect of my life over resting so I am committed to getting in bed no later than 10:00pm and taking a glass of water to bed to encourage me to drink more water. I am also committed to turning electronics off 1 hour before I am ready to go to bed which will hopefully improve the quality of my sleep.

I am choosing to commit to taking intentional time to rest every day. This time will be purposeful and will allow a daily reset. It could be taking a nap, listening to music, or just sitting in silence!

I am committed to letting myself enjoy down time. While being in nursing school the feeling of not being “productive” can feel like I’m being lazy, when in reality I am allowed to have down time and enjoy it.

My commitment is to sleep 8 hours every day. Too many days where I have gone into clinicals or class with 5 or less hours of sleep. I will do this by doing my homework and hanging out with friends and having everything done by 10 PM.

@Sandra Torres Excellent commitment! You've definitely put in the planning effort! You've got this!!

@LifestyleDesignRN Great suggestions!! Thank you so much for sharing!!

Absolutely!! There's a great divide between “knowing” and “doing”. I hear you there for sure. Us nurses pretty much “know” everything. IMO, LOL!! But we're also very human and “doing” is just as difficult for us to do as it is for other humans. I think we are just harder on ourselves about it because we “know” so much. We assume that if we know what we are suppos...
