One of my number one values is fun. That’s right, I want to have a good time. And I thoroughly believe that in enjoying ourselves we can relieve some of this nasty stuff we call stress in nursing.

I recently posted an intentional action item in the Your Next Shift Facebook Community and got a bunch of really awesome responses! I thought it’d be super fun to highlight not only the nurses who spoke out in this upbeat way, but to share the inspirational quotes they passed along to each other.

Oh, which leads me to another great stress reliever- surrounding yourself with like-minded nursing colleagues who are positive, enthusiastic, and like to make a difference in this world while supporting one another. So check out the group and here are the top five inspirational quotes shared amongst my nursing colleagues.
