If you hope to be a good nurse (or coworker, or person with a heart), you're going to spend the majority of your working life doing things you SO mistakenly think are beneath you. The "little" stuff is rarely small. It's heavy and you can't carry it by yourself. So yes, little nursling, you are here to pass trays.
On one hand, I like to see myself as a young leader within the disability field, so I like to use what I have to inspire people and hopefully foster change. On the other hand, having to be a constant inspiration can be exhausting and require years of therapy, which is hard to pay for when you inspire for free.
If you've noticed that your parent has become frail and in need of care, then you've probably noticed something else ... this care is really crazy expensive!
I don't reach out as often as I should. But I see your beautiful families. And I smile.
When you eat well, you live well. When you eat healthy, you are healthy; when you nourish your body, you nourish your mind:
I can see in my mind's eye several of nurses, both female and male who have helped me heal. I have had it proven to me that nurses, a heck of a lot of them, really care about their jobs and their patients. And, I am glad so many caring men are among those doing the healing.
The truth is more complicated. You see, "carbohydrates" encompasses a huge category. A hot fudge sundae and cauliflower both fall into the "carbs" category, yet they are entirely different foods.
When dining out, people who eat special diets are the butt of seemingly every joke at the table. "How do you know if someone's a vegan? Don't worry, they'll tell you," is a barb I am all too familiar with.
But let us not mislead the public about the significance of individual, incremental steps in the arc of science, nor promulgate the notion that "crowdsourcing" scientific discovery will get us where we need to go.
To honor the forgotten, overlooked or unappreciated movements, we asked top trainers to weigh in on the best exercises that fly under the radar. Not only will these moves build strength, improve endurance and burn calories, they'll keep you making progress toward your goals.
For the parts of anxiety that can be controlled, I'm learning that everything comes down to loving yourself.
I hope for kids who understand that it's okay to have junk food occasionally, who don't worry that junk food will poison them, but who also understand that there's a reason we eat oatmeal WAY more often than Lucky Charms.
My morning routine takes just over an hour. I can't stress enough to you the importance of a great morning routine, as it will set you up for a successful day -- and life. I experimented with a few different things and figured out what worked for me. You should do the same.
Everybody knows the importance of drinking enough water. Aside from its benefits to your skin, muscles, organs, and digestion, it detoxifies... the benefits are endless. So, ere's one more: it helps you lose weight, according to a new study.
Given research indicating a possible link between football head injuries and Alzheimer's, one would think that the NFL would want to promote Alzheimer's Awareness Month each November.
When all is said and done, all I can do what is try to get the word out, to facilitate even the smallest of change with the hope that even a small drop in the ocean of awareness will be enough to make a difference for someone else. I leave that hope in your hands.
I've found, now, that my greatest strength has come from embracing the intensity of my emotions and understanding where they come from. I understand, not only my own pain but the obligation that I have to the patients we serve. We cannot abandon them like so many of the people in their lives.
We're putting a call-to-action to all men: Get your baseline PSA blood test if you're 40 years or older. But of course, we know most men will not take this initiative, so this is an open letter to all women.
