5 Ways to Reward Yourself After a Crazy Week of Nursing Shifts

Hang out with friends.
Notice I didn’t say hang out with family. There’s a reason for that! When you hang out with family you still have to do stuff. But when you hang out with friends, no one expects you to cook for them or entertain them. If you don’t feel like talking, you just shut-up. They clean up after themselves and they’re (usually) capable of taking care of themselves. This is perfect after a week of crazy nursing shifts!

Pay someone to clean your house.
crazy week - 2
Preferably, someone cleans it while you’re working your last shift for the week. When you wake up, your house will be spotless and you won’t have to play catch-up all day long while still trying to combat daily chaos.

Get a massage.
Do anything that you can do completely by yourself. Let someone take care of you. You don’t have to talk if you don’t want to, you don’t have to move if you don’t want to, and you can direct how gentle or how hard you want your massage to be.
