Rock Your Health: Self-sacrifice no more!

Are you caught in a web of putting others ahead of yourself? Nurses have a tendency to be codependent—admit it—and we thrive on giving it all to our patients, our colleagues, our families, our parents, and even to our worthy causes. Consequently, we’re spent and have nothing left for ourselves.

I challenge you to try a new way of being for this next phase of your fabulous life. It is an opportunity to reprogram that self-sacrifice tendency into a new, improved you who is focused on self-care. It might be awkward at first, but this is your time to shine and the quality of your life may depend on it.

Here are some simple steps to help you start putting yourself first:

For your self: What is one thing you can do today and every day to pamper yourself?
For your dreams: Imagine having the perfect life. What is one step you can take toward it?
For your fulfillment: What makes you feel spiritually alive and how can you make that happen more?
For your health: How would you like your health to be and what resource can help you get started?
For your wealth: What does financial prosperity look like for you and what do you need to do to make that happen?
For your mind: What is one way you can change your mind from thinking of others to thinking of yourself?

Coaching can help! Give it some thought and if you want a sample coaching session, please contact me at
