    Have yet to work as a nurse, but I can tell you that while in nursing school and working full time, time for fun was very few for me....so going to the cinema and having a nice dinner with any of my friends was a way to relax.

    I currently workout to help relieve stress. I didn't do this as much through nursing school but now that I have the habit I love it! I think I will start getting massages every couple weeks also. That sounds amazing!
