It's day 3 of the Grow Your Resiliency challenge!
Research suggests mindfulness can help you become more resilient. Not only does taking time to be present help you to become a more resilient nurse, but it can also help you to be calmer, less stressed, and more content.
Here are some ways to help be more present every day:
- Stop and breathe deeply every so often.
- Use apps like, Stop, Breathe, & Think, Calm and Headspace for short guided meditations.
- Read our blog posts, The Beginner’s Guide to Meditation, Meditation 101: Know Your Options and Channeling Mindfulness in Nursing, to help you begin a mindfulness practice.
- Try nurse-focused meditation programs like these from our Friends of HNHN organizations, Transcendental Meditation for Nurses and Wellness at your Fingertips.
Do you make time for meditation or quiet in your life? Post a picture of your meditation spot or any books or tools you like to use on Instagram. Tag #healthynurse so we can get tips from one another or share in our discussion or on Facebook.
