Working out before work helps clear my head. It refreshes me. It relaxes me. It makes me feel better. It’s extremely important for me to workout, especially on days that I have to work. It also helps me sleep better. Sometimes I’d rather stay in bed and not get up, but I know I’ll feel so much better if I just get up and move! So get up and get moving! 💪🏼
Stress is something we all feel at work (let's be real). And it's also a reason why many of my clients (AND myself) use it as a reason to overeat.
But if we just know that stress is OPTIONAL, that can make all the difference.

“I always tell people to treat nurses like gold,” she says. “A lot of people are mean to nurses but they’re taking care of you and your family member and consider this: When someone is sick they’re not at their best. A nurse has to see past all that crankiness and pain and be kind and compassionate. That’s not easy.” #Repost@mariamenounos with @get_repost
#NursesRock! My nurses Ruth and Allison helped me through the toughest time of my life - and that's why I'm partnering with Johnson & Johnson on the @jnj Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge. Nurses have so many great ideas and now Johnson & Johnson is helping them bring these ideas to life. #NursesChangeLives#JNJ#partner
My little & I.... Representing my grind and who I grind for.
My daughter was so excited when she saw me waiting for her after school. She skipped all of the way home! 😍

An open letter to Emergency Nurses. 📝
Everything you do. Everything you are...
From the 12hr shifts you spend holding down the front line of the hospital prepared to take on whatever comes through those doors. The tears you wipe away, hold back or let loose. The blood you clean off your shoes or administer to the hemorrhaging patient. The sweat dripping from your forehead after your 3rd round of CPR because you are that patients heart beat. The Elmo bandaid you put on your pediatric patient who luckily only scraped their knee or the pressure you’re holding to the gun shot wound in a patient that EMS just brought in through the squad doors.
To the countless hours you spend educating yourself, obtaining necessary certifications and honing those skills. The IM injection you gave reconstituted with lidocaine because you do what you can to ease the pain. The joy you get knowing you made a difference in a patients life and they will see their loved ones again. The unnecessary verbal or physical abuse you endure from patients, their family or fellow nurses. The way you lock it all inside because you can’t talk about “work” with your family and you do your best to wear your smile. The way you wake up the next day, slip back into your scrubs and go do it all again.
You are APPRECIATED & you are NEVER ALONE!

Happy Emergency Nurses Week. From one ER nurse to another. I appreciate you. WE ARE THE ER!
