Tips for Nurses – How to Keep Your Energy Up

March 22, 2022

UK nursing jobs are some of the most rewarding positions available in the country. The flipside of this is that it can be incredibly demanding work. How do you keep your energy up in a non-stop work environment? The tips below may help!

Try to Eat Right

It’s remarkable what the right nutrition can achieve. Try the following to maintain steady, sustainable energy:


  • Eat plenty of complex carbohydrates
  • Eat plenty of soluble and insoluble fibre
  • Avoid sugary foods, especially processed sugars
  • Moderate your caffeine intake
  • Stay hydrated
  • Eat a variety of fruits and veggies
  • High-protein foods are great
  • Eat little and often to moderate your blood sugar spikes


Get Good Sleep When You Can

We’re not saying this will always be easy – shifting schedules can be tough to navigate. That said, whenever there’s an opportunity to maintain consistency, pounce on it. Short daytime naps can work wonders too.

Seek Energy-Boosting Habits

This could be meditation, walks with friends, light jogs, whatever it is that works for you personally. While the demands put on you as a nurse will be great, it’s important to remember that you deserve breaks and rest too.


It won’t always be possible, but take that 5-minute break whenever you can.
