Stress Management in Nursing

Find a diversion: Often times, nurses get stressed when there is a lot going on all at once. When this happens, take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get your mind off of the problem. You could take a walk, or do an activity that will give you a fresh perspective on things – when time permits.


Think positive: Challenge your negative thinking with positive statements and realistic thinking. When encountering thoughts that make you fearful or anxious, challenge those thoughts by asking yourself questions that will maintain objectivity and common sense.


Find gratitude: take a few minutes to write down all of the things that you are thankful for in your life. This list could include past accomplishments and all the things that you have taken for granted. The next time you feel depressed, review your list and think about the good things that you have in your life.


Divide and conquer: When facing a current or upcoming task that overwhelms you, divide the task into a series of smaller steps and then complete each of the smaller tasks one at a time. Completing these smaller tasks will make the stress more manageable and increases your chances of success.


Positive affirmations work: have a small notebook of positive statements that make us feel good. Whenever you come across an affirmation that makes you feel good, write it down in a small notebook that you can carry around with you in your pocket. Whenever you feel anxious, open up your small notebook and read those statements. Challenge your thoughts with positive words: “I am coping”, “This too will pass”, “I am a wonderful being”, “I am doing wonderfully well”, and “I am enough”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Healthy Diet Tips

 

- Eat breakfast everyday. People who eat breakfast are less likely to overeat later in the day.

 

- Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Fruits and vegetables are packed with beneficial fibers, vitamins, and antioxidants.

 

- Drink a glass of water before you start a meal. Water naturally needs some space so that you fell fuller without actually having to stuff yourself.

 

- Eat fresh fruits instead of drinking juice. Juice is often sweetened but fresh fruits have natural sugar and are excellent source of vitamins.

 

- Don't forget dairy. Your bones still need calcium to stay strong, dairy food and some alternatives provide proteins as well as calcium.

 

- Color your plate. The more your plate is colorful the more it's rich in minerals and vitamins.
