• Nurses Month is Rapidly Approaching

    Nurses Month is rapidly approaching! May 1st is next week. May 6 is Nurses Day in the US. May 12 is the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale and International Nurses Day.

Admittedly, most nurses are overachievers and asking for help can be perceived as a weakness or even a failure. You might also feel like you’ve not met your goals, or lived up to your ideal of perfect if you ask someone to…

  • Setting Intentions for Self-Care in 2023

    Typically, the end of the year or the first couple of weeks of the new year are times when people think about new year’s resolutions. It’s a time for letting go of the past and planning new goals and focus on the blank slate. It’s a time for renewal and reflection. A time to begin new and rediscover yourself.
