My first bulletin board I put up on the wing was titled, “Nap Like A God”. This fit into the Brockert Hall theme of Greek gods and goddesses, and was something I enjoyed doing. It gives fun facts about the benefits of napping, and breaks down the different length naps and the benefits of each. For example, The micro nap: 2-5 mins. It is shown to be surprisingly effective at shedding sleepiness. This encourages residents to get a decent amount of sleep, and the benefits of doing so.
I engaged with a few residents in our little push-up challenge where in order to stay healthy we do 20 push-ups every night, so we didn’t let each other pass a certain point in the hallway unless we did our 20 push-ups. Its a good way to stay motivated and keep each other honest. I did my 20, and so did they!
New bulletin board up about ways to avoid getting sick. I know that the temperature is getting warmer and most of you are not worried about getting sick. However it is always a possibility and with it being warm most take less care of making sure they are properly dressed, especially when it isn’t as warm as we pretend it is.
Since the weekend was so nice and I was able to get most of my homework done, a resident and I were able to throw the football around a bit in the circle and enjoy the amazingly beautiful day. (it was 76 degrees holy crap!!) Nice to get the arm a workout and get some outdoor time as well!
Had a resident who was wanting to get back into weight lifting to build some strength and get back in a little more shape. I went to the gym with them to do some upper body and they did great! I’m glad they had a good experience, we should definitely go again sometime!
New bulletin board up about sleep and what it’s good for as well as why can it can be hard to achieve sometimes. If you are someone who has trouble sleeping take a look and see if you can use some of this priceless knowledge.
Like most people, at 0650 hours I am awake and getting ready to swim. Of course I didn’t want to wake up then. But my resident and I knew that that was the best time to go for an early morning swim. It was tiring but a nice refreshing wake up.
