While December is a popular time for vacations, it's also one of the busiest months of the year. Holidays and year-end festivities can sometimes intensify stress and lead to hectic schedules, especially for nurses.
It's essential to dedicate time to nourish your body and mind, which can boost your health and help you navigate the demands of this bustling season. Even small, intentional breaks can significantly affect your well-being.
When was the last time you had a vacation? Taking a break is a must-do. No one can go full steam ahead without stopping to rest. This is especially true for nurses who selflessly give their time, energy, and compassion to others.
The benefits of vacations are clear. They can help:
- Alleviate stress
- Boost energy levels
- Contribute to mental and physical well-being
But you can get the benefits of a vacation even if you don't take time off work.
In our 10 day Everyday Vacations Challenge you can seek out mini vacation moments within your day. Whether it is to prioritize a rejuvenating power nap, take the scenic route home as you enjoy your favorite podcast, or indulge in a soothing bath at day's end.
Though this challenge concludes on December 22, we encourage you to try it on your own with a friend or colleague. Get started here.
