Unhealthy habits are often hard to ditch, especially because we become comfortable and stuck in a routine. The New Year brings the perfect opportunity to change things up and make better choices. As a nurse, you understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle, but you may not be living it yourself.

Make it a goal to eat healthier, exercise when you can, and to get more rest. Eating healthier is much easier when you plan your meals and snacks in advance and bring them to work with you. Start meal planning, and prepare your own foods. Try to get to sleep earlier than usual, so you can feel well rested in the mornings. By committing to healthier choices, you’ll be able to start the year off on the right foot.
