Tips to Avoid Burnout

Sometimes you just have to take some time to do the little things that you enjoy doing like reading a book, playing with your children or animals, taking a weekend trip, or engaging in a hobby like sewing, photography, or hiking.

    Every day, I hear about a new energy drink; Rockstar, Monster Energy, Full throttle, Redline and Wire…well, you get it! Beverage manufactures are feeding our demands for more caffeine because as a travel nurse there are just not enough hours in the day. Being a travel nurse can be incredibly exhausting.

    Turn away the caffeine and use natural energy boosters:
    •Drinking is important to battling fatigue; natural fruit juices, water and milk replenishes.

    •Eat high energy foods ( fruits and protein)
    •Try a supplement , B6, B12 or Coq -10
    •Healthy breathing techniques and posture raises energy
