Healthy Eating for Healthy Weight Loss 4676

I commit to eating homemade meals with limited take out and limited soda. Ever since I started eating at home, I have lost 26 lbs. I want this trend to continue, but when I had challenging days at work, I just want something comforting. It has taken a mindset change for me to pass the fast food and go home for some good quality. This also means letting go of soda, ...

I Commit to Rest 4670

Life has been hectic the last few years. My kids are young (6 & 9) but involved in all the sports under the sun. My partner and I both work full-time at the university. For the past three years, we've also been finishing our doctoral degrees together and finally get to walk across the stage in May. With my dissertation finished, I feel weird and almost guilty ...

My quality of life improved when I changed my weekly Thank you journal to include daily thank you notes to others. Today's thank you note is to ANA for Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation for the email reminders that remind me to keep all areas of my life balanced.

I am making a commitment to Physical Activity. 4655

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.

Basically I became burnt out by the time I graduated nursing school. By focusing on my quality of life I am also committing to self care. While I'm not at work my goal is ...

Commit to Rest/ Fighting Revenge Bedtime Procrastination 4652

Between full time work and full time school and residency program and babysitting the kids and kickboxing, I am having a hard time getting enough sleep. I believe this is why my health is declining and I now get sick at the drop of a hat, which was never the case prior to this stressfully busy season in my life. I knew I should've allowed myself a week between ...

Having an active lifestyle in your 40s 4649

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 ...

Taking it easy 4642

Committing to my mental health means being kind to myself and not stressing over things I cannot control. It is important to think of progress, not perfection. Being a new grad nurse, I have learned not to put too much pressure on myself. I have found healthy outlets outside of work that I will do more of such as journaling and coloring.
