5 Ways to Stay Fit and Healthy for Nurses

One of the toughest things to do as a nurse is finding time for self-care. Despite knowing the importance of maintaining our well-being, sometimes, our busy lifestyle makes execution almost impossible. Here are a few ways to stay fit and healthy despite your busy schedule as a nurse.

Self-assessment and goal-setting

Before embarking on any fitness journey, assessing yourself and setting realistic goals is important. Assessing your overall health, physical fitness levels, body goals, and time commitments will help you develop a realistic and measurable health and fitness plan.

Healthy meal prepping

Nutrition plays a significant role in busy nurses' overall health and energy levels. Creating healthy meal preps ensures access to nutritious meals during hectic shifts. This helps to fuel your energy and promote recovery on your fitness journey.

Stay active

Incorporating short activities, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, cooking, or doing stretching exercises, can help increase your daily activity levels. This will help you keep fit despite your busy schedules.

Get a fitness bestie

Having a fitness partner makes staying fit more enjoyable. Whether you attend the gym together, go for walks during breaks, or simply encourage one another, your fitness bestie can help you achieve your goals. Consider teaming up with colleagues or friends who share similar health goals and interests to stay fit and healthy.

Create a realistic workout routine

To achieve your goals of staying fit and healthy, it is important to design workout routines that fit your lifestyle and commitments. Some recommended workouts for nurses include squats, lunges, planks, jogs, etc.
