5 Tips for Keeping Your Energy Up in Nursing School
Posted by Amy on 17th Nov 2017
Nursing school is tiresome and packed with exhausting, difficult work. To keep your energy up, try following these five guidelines! We hope they help you stay awake and alert all throughout your shift!
Wear the Appropriate Shoes
Your comfort has a lot to do with how energized you feel! Ill-fitting shoes cause back, foot, leg, and knee aches. They’re terribly unhealthy for you. So start off by making sure you’re wearing the appropriate nursing shoes.
Wear Comfortable Scrubs
After you’ve found the right shoes, make sure you’re wearing comfortable and form-fitting scrubs! You can find these scrubs at Blue Sky Co.; no matter your body type, we have a set of scrubs that can fit you. From our Classic Shelby scrubs to our comfortable, stretchy Technical scrubs and petite-fitting Grey Label scrubs, we’re bound to find something to fit you comfortably.
Eat Healthy Snacks
Bring snacks with you to work that are packed with carbs and protein; these will certainly help keep your energy up. Snacks like peanut butter, trail mix, granola, etc are healthy and energizing!
Drink Plenty of Water
Stay hydrated! Carry a water bottle with you, keep it in your locker, or take water breaks whenever your schedule allows. Just like snacking throughout your shift, it’s important to drink a much water as possible.
Rest While You Can
It’s highly important that you get the right amount of sleep each night. And rest while you can, even if that means taking a nap between shifts! No matter how much caffeine we consume, we can never replace quality sleep.
No really… follow these guidelines and you’ll feel much better and more energized throughout your shift.
