I will engage in a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise at least 4 days/week

I believe that movement changes your mind, body, and spirit. If your day begins to feel overwhelming stand up and walk a minimum of 100 steps and your feelings will change. Take slow deep breaths.

While being so busy in nursing school, I have found it difficult to want to be active due to exhaustion and wanting to lay down and rest. I know that that is not good for my health, so I try to walk my dog atleast once a day to get some physical activity! 

During nursing school it can get very easy to overindulge in “rest times” due to exhaustion and stress. However, it is proven that we need at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. I commit to go on a 30 min walk each day to promote better physical health and better coping for stress. 

throughout the rest of nursing school and through my nursing career i’ll continue to keep doing the things that keep my quality of life up, such as going on walks and just being outside! 

I commit to making my physical health more of a priority by walking outside 5 times a week.  I love to go on outside walks but when I get busy with school and other commitments this physical activity is one of the first things that I drop from my schedule. When I go on walks it not only improves my physical health but also my mental health as I am able to take a break ...

My personal commitment is to always keep my body moving that way I can stay strong & healthy!

I commit to making time outside of work, school, and other stressors to exercise, whether it be in a gym or outdoors, for at least one hour three to four times a week. It is important to find hobbies and interests outside your daily obligations, and it is even better that I can have friends to share them with.

I commit to set time aside for myself and keep personal time away from work and school. What I like to do for myself in my personal time is going to the gym and running. I have been consistent in nursing school with keeping this healthy balance. Working out has always been a time where my mind can shut off. It helps to have this hobby because it benefits my ...

I commit to going on at least a 30 minute walk outside everyday. I will be exercising through my walking, which will improve my physical health. It will also help me relax, be in fresh air, and get some Vitamin D.

At the gym with my nursing school buddies! One of the things I’ve been consistent with throughout nursing school is physical activity. Even if it’s for 30 minutes, I’ll find the time. It is the only thing that makes me feel energized, focused, and ready to have a productive day after a good intense workout. Working out has also improved my stress levels and ...

I commit to focus on my physical and mental health and make time for exercise. Balancing nursing school with work and life has been challenging but I know that taking time out of my day to relive stress through physical activity will immensely benefit my mental health. I enjoy getting my steps in while hiking or doing some lifting at the gym!

I have to say that since I started nursing school (pre-reqs and core classes) and working now, I have no time to go to the gym and excersize. I want to start going more often to the gym.

I used to workout 6x a week a few years ago. I even joined marathons like twice or thrice a year. Now that I'm in my 40s, it's really been a challenge being active and having time for workouts (I'm a working mom with 4 kids). So I had to change my routines, and found ways how to squeeze workouts in my schedule. Here's what I did:  1. I made sure to stick with a ...

I am committed to moving my body more throughout the day.

When you allot time to be healthy, this means you're doing something for yourself. I make sure I have 20-30 minutes a day to workout and do peloton. I make sure I watch an episode in netflix so I don't feel the time pass by so quickly. 5X of working out a day is a big deal in making your lifestyle better and healthier.

I will walk with my husband and daughter 4 times a week after work. These walks help strengthen our family bond. My husband and I talk to one another and connect deeply. My daughter learns health habits and sees her parents making a commitment to their health and relations ship. She is outside and away from any screen time. My Husband and I are also not on the ...
