Nursing school can very easily take over every aspect of your life, just like it did mine. The whole reason I started this website was to keep other students from falling into that trap by providing resources to make nursing school more manageable. In the five years it took me to take all my prerequisites and get through my program, I watched my health slowly deteriorate until I ended up diagnosed with a chronic illness that could have either killed or seriously debilitated me at any time (if you’re into that sort of thing, you can read about it here).
One of the things nursing students struggle with is staying healthy when life, school, work, family, studying, school, clinical, school is just so darn busy! I am a big believer in taking care of yourself (if you don’t believe me, see this post), and over the past couple of years have focused on revamping my entire lifestyle into one focused on vitality and wellness. Here are a few products I use daily that keep me going in the right direction (and away from the gallon of ice cream someone left in my freezer…haha!)
