 Grow Your Wellness

The online health and wellness centre, www.GrowYourWellness.com, now offers a new feature to assist nurses in strengthening their own health and wellness.  Healthy Nurses, Healthy Communities provides resources for nurses to address non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and healthy ageing. Nurses who invest in their own health act as important role models for their patients and communities. They are also well prepared to respond to the burdens of today’s demanding health care environments. The web-based resource centre (www.GrowYourWellness.com) is an initiative to mobilise and equip nurses to help address the global NCD crisis. Healthy Nurses, Healthy Communities offers nurse-tested wellness tools, such as tips for stress management and how to fit exercise into daily routines, as well as strategies and recipes to help nurses feel their best at any age. It also calls for immunisation for adult and work-related preventable diseases, such as influenza, hepatitis A and B, tetanus and pneumonia. Visitors will discover many ways to improve their wellness and lead their communities to better health.
