|A substance that provides nourishment essential for growth and the maintenance of life.
Nutrients are the essential building blocks of life. They allow things to grow, flourish, and become beautiful. This blog is meant to inspire, motivate and support nurses to be caregivers for not only everyone else but most importantly, for themselves. It’s meant to support you to nourish your body, mind and spirit. It’s all too often we run on empty making sure everyone else is cared for-our family, friends and patients-when we ourselves are falling apart at the seams. Why do we not value ourselves enough to say that we matter too? I use to think it was selfish to nourish myself. Now I learned that I can do more, be more and give more when I am taking care of myself first. You know when you are on the airplane and they tell you that in an event of an emergency, put the oxygen mask on yourself first before helping others? Life is something like that. Start small, make a commitment to yourself! YOU DESERVE IT!
