Are you at risk for Karoshi? Find out

Dear nurse, We’re diving into a topic that’s critical for all professionals, but particularly for those in demanding roles like nursing. This week, we’re focusing on the importance of work-life balance and the risks of overworking. First, we want to introduce you to a Japanese term, ‘Karoshi‘, which means death by overwork.

A Secret Birthday Takeover

This is what nurses do. We care. A whole lot. Until we can’t care anymore. We work. A whole lot. Until we can’t work anymore. We suffer. We strive. We give. We forget to live. I am not Annette Tersigni. My name is Kady and I have temporarily taken over Annette’s blog (she knows I’m writing to you but doesn’t know what I’m about to say). I was a nurse. I held up the four…

On Hopelessness, Health and Happiness

Greetings, Cut to the chase. I had a biopsy about 10 days ago. They found a suspicious area in my right breast, from an earlier mammogram and ultrasound.

Then came the waiting game, Easter weekend was coming up and the imaging center, where I was to return to get…

How to Not Suffer Over the Suffering + a GIFT

Meet Alan Watts: An English writer, speaker and self-styled “philosophical entertainer”, known for interpreting and popularizing Indian and Chinese traditions of Buddhist, Taoist, and Hindu philosophy for a Western audience.

Already a veteran of suffering,…
