Galen College of Nursing is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate and baccalaureate degrees.
As the Marketing Director at Galen, you can imagine Iâ€™d be excited about our new blog.Â So much so, that I agreed to write something for it.Â â€œSure!â€ I said, months ago, thinking I would have plenty of time to come up with something relevant to nursing students, education and how cool I think it is that so many of you have crazy busy lives, yet are figuring out how to fit in nursing school education to pursue this great career.
But I keep finding myself wanting to write about something else, besides Galen and nursing, that is near and dear to my heart. Because I see and hear first-hand how hard nursing students work and I put two and two together–that you are not always putting yourself, and your health, first. And donâ€™t roll your eyesâ€”yes, your health. In my spare time I am a bit of a fitness and health fanatic. I teach spinning classes and am a long-distance runner (ran in the Boston Marathon this past Aprilâ€”but that is for another blog post).Â
I would like to make a few suggestions that are not a diet, they are not a New Yearâ€™s resolution, and they are simple, easy things we can do to improve our own health. We are the first line of defense to illness and disease. Not the health industry, not your doctor and not you when you become a nurse and start self-diagnosing your own symptoms! There are easy things we can do that will make a difference over time. Here goes:
See, that wasnâ€™t so bad!Â You donâ€™t have to turn your life upside down and make all sorts of hard to keep promises to do something better for yourself now. Little things add up. If you want to make bigger changes, sometimes you have to start small.Â
Yours in health, and to a great future!Â
