Macramé to mowing: Ways for nurses to wind down during a pandemic
from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
What’s this about everyone making sourdough bread all of a sudden? If you work as a nurse, you probably haven’t had the kind of free time that allows you to indulge in the 24-hour-plus turnaround for making artisan bread. But just like the folks who are stuck at home 24/7, nurses during the pandemic need some wind-downs and should be serious about making them a priority. Even if you’re not on the frontlines of treating COVID-19 patients, nursing work is extra stressful right now. Your job may even be slower than it was before March 2020, but you’re still faced with added social distancing and quarantining — and every friend, family member, and newscaster constantly sharing opinions and asking questions. To make it through the high-pressure workdays and the sheer stress of knowing how serious a pandemic is, it’s important for nurses to relax and recharge — and forget about life for a while.
