Achieving the ideal work-life balance is something that we all strive to achieved, particularly when you are in a profession that involves putting the needs of other before your own.

Research carried out by the health and safety executive indicates that 9 in 10 registered general nurses in the healthcare sector admit feeling more stressed and anxious. This is why it is important to put in place ways that will help you maintain a steady work-life balance. There are various different ways to accomplish a positive work-life balance. Below are a few helpful tips to inspire you and encourage you to achieve a better work-life balance.

When you have had a busy day on the ward, it is important that you exercise to improve your mental and physical well-being. Exercise allows you to release any built-up stress and allows you to focus on something aside from work. This allows you to detach yourself from stresses experienced during the day. When you have finished your shifts, it is best to schedule exercise straight after work, this could be doing a workout at the gym, after your shift, completing a home workout or going on a run. It is important to ensure routine of exercising at least three times a week to take your mind off things and help you relax. Switching off from work is important to reduce stress and take your mind off things.

Balanced Diet
When doing long shift patterns and working a lot of days, having a balanced diet can be difficult to fit in, however it is important that you are feeding your body with nutrients to ensure your body feels energised. This will help you care for patients and during your days off, you will feel more refreshed to undertake other activities and spend time with loved ones. It is important to eat a healthy balanced diet that is full of vitamins, protein and having the right amount of fats and carbohydrates to keep you energised throughout the day.

Individuals get frustrated because of high waiting times in the A&E department and there is a lot of drunken behaviour across the country. An A&E nurse has to be professional and have the ability to deal with difficult situations.

The benefits of working long 12-hour shifts, scheduled across 3-day segments, with a 4-day weekend to rest and relax. This allows nurses to spend extra days off with family and friends and allows you to do things that you enjoy. You may have a hobby such as cooking or you may want to spend time going to the gym.

Get loads of rest
One of the most important things to do when working long shifts as registered nurse is to get enough sleep.

It is important that your vitamin levels are high to keep your immune system strong and to ensure that your body functions on a day-to-day basis. If vitamin levels are low, it can reduce your energy levels. You can boost vitamin levels by taking multivitamins or eating food with high vitamin levels.
