Greetings, hope this finds you well! So for Nurse's Week, my hospital wanted to highlight self-care and wellbeing, which is great because, let's be real, we're all tired. I was put to do some research, and I have some ideas but the only thing is that we need to look at virtual means of promoting and providing methods for self-care and wellbeing due to the pandemic and the various work schedules. Some thoughts I was chewing on included: a video with guided stretching, classical music and prayer, health tips (eg. tips on how to enhance your sleep), a coloring activity...
I have some other ideas, but wanted to ask if you have seen any ideas from your hospital that you really liked or that promoted self-care and wellness in a helpful way?
Thank you in advance for any tips and tricks 🙂

I have heard that there is research that playing 15 minuets of Tetris, Candy Crush, or similar games can have the same benefits as 15 min of mediation.
How about an email pop quiz? Something that they cannot Google the answer to, like a puzzle, 4 picture one word kind of puzzle and is time-pressured.

Are there current self-care/ wellness tools that your hospital already has in place? Along with other things that you decide to implement, this would be a great time to review current resources which staff may not be aware of, have forgotten about or may not realize the full benefit of.
Examples could include EAP benefits, wellness/ health benefits through insurance and any discounts available to staff through their employer association (YMCA, fitness clubs, etc).
