The Nurse Is In
Anthea “Nurse Noel” Noel, RN BSN MS SANE
Here are Nurse Noel’s daily eight easy steps to a happier and healthier life:
Time – It’s a New Year!
Nutrition – Eat to live, not live to eat. It is a struggle, but I am beginning you to see food as fuel. It helped me not to overeat and really be cognizant of what I put into my body. Focus on a diet low in sugar, high fiber, low sodium and fat. Whole grains, fruit, and vegetables are also great for the vital organs.
Exercise – Who besides me starts off the year with a bang in the gym consistently but fizzles out by March? Am I the only one? Slow and steady is the most beneficial. Go at your own pace and remember, safety first.
Water – How much water does the body require? It is not a trick question, but there is a formula to it. Take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2. That number is the amount of ounces of water your body requires daily. Ex. 160lbs /2 = 80oz. (10 glasses)
Sunshine – Sunlight triggers your brain to release serotonin, also known as the happy hormone. Serotonin is responsible for feelings of happiness and joy.
Temperance – Everything in moderation. It’s important to learn to show restraint for the things that are not serving you.
Air – Fresh air improves blood pressure, boosts the immune system, and aids in the effective digestion of food.
Rest – Are you getting eight or more hours of sleep a night? Adequate sleep is critical for optimal health. Sleep boosts the immune system, prevents weight gain, and strengthens the heart.
Time – Take time for you. Many times that is a difficult thing to do, but it is important that we take time for self-care.
