listening to music to relax and unwindRelax and unwind

Nursing is stressful, and it’s really important to take breaks and relax when you can. Travel nursing is a great way to mix traveling and work to reduce burnout, but you should also actively think about unwinding after you’re done with a shift, so that you’re energized for the next day. With chill songs that you can sing along to, this playlist goes perfectly with a nice dinner and dessert, a long bath, or a hike — whatever helps you relax.

While you spend your day helping your patients get healthy, it’s important that you don’t neglect your own wellness.
