Winners Of The NYP/WEILL CORNELL Healthy Nurse Sub Committee Self Care Selfie Contest For 2020 Nurses Month

GOLD AWARD: Veronica Pasha, EMPA, RNC-OB, SAFE, Senior Staff Nurse Float from Women and Children’s Health

So in non-COVID times, my self- care includes powerlifting. It's helped me in many ways but the two biggest ones are managing anxiety and promoting a positive body image. There is a lot of stigma around women in sports but an even bigger stigma in lifting. So while the gyms are closed and work has been difficult, I couldn't allow the one thing that keeps me grounded slip from my hands. So here I am! While it's not a barbell with 300 pounds on it, working the core is equally as important. And here is my selfie :) 

SILVER AWARD: Angela Vilasi, BSN, RN, CCRN, 8W Burn ICU -Face Shield by Day, Face Mask by Night (Self-Care Selfie Contest)


BRONZE AWARD: Ariel Brettholz, MSN, CPNP-PC, RN from 6N & 6NR WCH PEDS


Attached is my selfie for the nurses week self-care selfie contest!  Doing puzzles has been very therapeutic for me during this stressful time.
