My hospital actually does have a night cafeteria. The selection is pretty good. They have made an effort to have healthy choices available .Including fresh fruits and veggies. And they put the calorie and fat count on everything. But I realize that is not the norm.

I think shift work is really bad for you. It puts you at risk for DM and CA along with obesity. Unless you are really good about bringing your healthy bagged lunch, you are noshing on vending machine food or takeout. The last time I worked at a hospital with a night shift cafeteria was in 1990's.

Developing and appropriately using the skill of saying, "No." That would go a long way towards helping nurses find balanced lives.

Words mean things.

Watching Extreme makeover weight loss on demand. Watching the Episode with the RN Trina. The host Chris stated that Nursing has one of the highest obesity rates. Sad isn't it? Probably several reasons for it...Stress would be one of the biggest , we also take care of others and leave little left for ourselves. Crazy hours. Eating and running what ever is easiest.

What are your thoughts on this? What are you doing to change the obstacles that nursing can create that get in the way of healthy living?
