“To do what nobody else will do, in a way that nobody else can do, in spite of all we go through — that is to be a nurse.” – Rawsi Williams

Take a moment to reflect on everything you’ve accomplished up to this point. Your journey is unique, and it has been extraordinary, but there is so much more that lays ahead of you.

Every day, you face tasks and decisions like no other occupation. You see joy, grief, victory, setbacks — a whole spectrum of human experiences and emotion — sometimes all in one day. Despite this, you do not let fear or worry hold you back. But what about outside of work? After all, you are not just a nurse. You are a person with goals, aspirations, and ambitions outside of your career. Do you let fear of the unknown or unfamiliar stop you from breaking through barriers?

We challenge you to consider all this and more in our Possibilities Unlimited challenge, powered by support from Humana. As a nurse, your potential is unlimited. The possibilities are truly unlimited. 

Starts July 13!

I have arthritis on my right knee and it has been my challenge with my walking that I am very passionate about but now my prayers were answered and the nearby community to mine opened up a new rec center which has pool section for walking against water gravity ,now on days I feel sore to walk on land I go to the walking pool and not miss out on my walking .
After 2 years of our bikes gathering dust in the basement we pulled them out, cleaned them up, put air in the tires and went out for a 40 minute cycle around the neighborhood. Got to explore some areas I didn't even know were tucked away in nearby woods and appreciate the flowers in the gardens. 3 days this week with 2 video workouts on the other days.  My husband & I are holding each other accountable by making a commitment to do something every day and the other one calling them out if they are letting something else start to get in the way.
Mrs sheena, way to go, holding each other accountable is how to do it .keep up the good work you both.

Hi everyone,
When I turned 50, I decided to get healthier and lose weight (which I did). Up until 4 months ago, I faithfully maintained and then COVID hit and I started teleworking. Needless to say I was well on my way to gaining the COVID 19 pounds? Decided I needed to stop it. Started eating healthier again and exercising a week ago. So far so good but the motivation is tough. Looking forward to reading everyone’sresponses while on this journey.

Luvssunris‍ You've got this! Great job getting back at it!
I have been walking everyday for the past week for a change from biking to get the good benefits of walking.my plan is to go back and forth between the two activities.
I signed up to bike and raised money with VELOSANO for cancer research at Cleveland Clinic which is now virtual  due to covid 19 this weekend
so I will be on my bike  alone riding around my neighborhood with that goal in mind .

Healthy Nurse vivi‍ it's good to switch it up so your routine stays fresh and you don't get bored!
I joined and reading all the wonderful ways that people have started. My barriers right now is time. My work days have turned from 8 hours to 12 hours easily 5 days a week and weekend call.  Day 1- my switch from doing nothing will be do do step aerobics. My neighbor is a fitness instructor and has taken her classes from in studio to online. I took step in college and loved it. Day 2-I don't have access to a pool or lake.

Pat-Rice Milton‍ I forgot about step aerobics! I used to take a class right after I got out of college and LOVED it! I want to look back into doing that again!

Monday exercise: Briskly walked outside along nature trails 18,425 Steps for a distance of 7 miles
Tuesday exercise: Briskly walked outside along nature trails 18,352 Steps for a distance of 7 miles
I also incorporate mindfulness by taking in deep breaths, listening to the
different sounds of nature and taking in the sights of the various plants and their
colors, while also listening to the water  
running in the different tributaries that I walk along side or cross over during my
walk.  I feel at peace with the various animals that cross my path (rabbits, squirrels,
snakes, lizards, butterflies, bees, frogs, turtles, ducks, swans and different species of
birds).
It is so relaxing.?

Just started. I find inspiration from reading other members comments. 
I tried paddle boarding today and it was great weather for it fortunately.  However it wasn’t as long as I had hoped because both of my feet cramped up.  I think I was tense and nervous that I don’t have good balance.  My teenager told me you have to just think that you’re going to fall in and that takes the fear out of it.  I’m willing to try again!

I've gotten to SUP a few times and I loved it!! I've fallen everytime, it's not too bad :)

Did you need instruction or was it easy to maneuver in the water?
