Welcome to TheWellNurseLife…a blog and wellness coaching service to help nurses focus on their personal and professional health, so that we can have a well-life! I am soooo excited you are here!!
As you know, my name is Emily. I am a nurse and also have a degree in Health Promotion & Wellness. I am a wife and a mom to two giant breed rescue dogs (Yoshi on left, Daisy on right), and two rescue cats….meow. I am a lover of all things chocolate, a runner-wanna-be, and am striving to be a “clean eater” (some days I do better at this than other days…sigh. I live in a log home in the woods where I am able to stay connected with nature and find the peace, calm, and reguvination that I need. I strive to keep life simple and work to find happiness and positivity in each day. Despite my training and education, maintaining and balancing my own personal and professional health has always been a challenge for me. I continue to learn how to live with and manage my own chronic illness, as my own health and wellness is a continual journey and work in progress.
For many years, my cup was filled as an oncology nurse, caring for cancer patients, and working in a leadership role to care for my team. But, a few years ago, when I hit my lowest point, both personally and professionally, I realized that I am one of the many healthcare professionals that does not have a well-life. Even though I had the training and knowledge, I found myself struggling to find and maintain my own health and wellness. While I was consumed by caring for my oncology patients and my nursing team, my own health and wellness fell apart…just like so many other healthcare professionals who are committed to their cause. From this, TheWellNurseLife was created, not only for my own healing and growth, but for the healing and growth of other nurses whom I knew needed exactly the same thing that I did.
Here at TheWellNurseLife, I will help guide you in finding, creating, and maintaining just that, your own well-life. TheWellNurseLife will provide you with the resources, strategies, tools, and support you need to achieve your wellness goals, while providing education and increasing awareness about the importance of having both personal and professional health. We are on this journey together, and I am here to help you every step of the way!!
This blog and coaching service is where my passion for nursing, interest in wellness, and desire to help others, along with my dream of being a writer, come together in a unique way. I am here to help you on your wellness journey, so that on an individual, as well as a collective level, we can become healthier and happier as a profession. This is about your life…my life…our life 🙂 I look forward to hearing from you soon and sharing this journey together!
Be good to yourself,
~Emily BS, BSN, RN
