We deal with different emerging as paramedic nurses. There is no exact time or hour when we have to deal with them. In order for a paramedic nurse to be effective and efficient one has to be in the peak of health. It is not easy to do this since the knowledge one has. There are factors why some paramedic nurseries are not as healthy as they should be. It may be ironic that we tell our patients to live a healthy lifestyle but we do not. We need to also take heed the health advice we give to our patients.
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep may be a luxury to most paramedic nurse. The shifts can be grueling and you end up not sleeping at all. Another problem is that since there are changes in shift the body has to adapt as well. The best option for someone to be able to get enough sleep is to take advantage of lean hours on the job. Take power naps that can do wonder for your body and sleepiness.
Take Vitamin Supplements
Eating fruits and vegetables is already a given. As our occupation dictates we need to eat healthy. However, there are times that food preparation takes too long. Sometimes we are already called to answer to an emergency without eating any food. Then one has to take some vitamin supplement to augment the lost nutrients in our body.
Exercise as Best as You Can
As paramedic nurse we are sorry to run around. It may be detrimental for us if we are always out of breath when responding to emergencies. When one has a free time, then try to incorporate exercises in the daily routine. It does not need to be complicated or hard. It can only take at least 30 minutes of each day. It can help you feel refresh. If you feel that exercising alone is not for you, then seek a friend or a college that can go with you to exercise. It could be fun and productive for both of you.
Choose the Right Food
Perhaps this can be the most difficult thing to do. How can we prepare meals that may take a long time to cook? Some will think that it is better to just eat readymade meals. However, these meals may have synthetic ingredients that can harm our health. It is best to choose ingredients that are organic and free from chemical pesticides.
