Welcome to My Life Nurse, my name is Lisa Kimrey, RN.
This website is the perfect resource to help you start taking better care of yourself. Among other things, it will show you how to:
– Find motivation, interest, and time for your self-care.
– Create (and stick to) a self-care routine.
– Stay well while you serve and take care of others.
-Rest in God’s presence.
I’m a nurse, speaker, and the author of a Bible study called: The Self-care Impact: Motivation and Inspiration for Wellness.
This blog was created because I get you.
I’ve not only provided nursing care to people like you, but I’ve also been where you are, and so, I know how you feel.
I know what it’s like to have the passion (or calling) of taking care of and serving others.
I’m also familiar with the struggle to take care of yourself while serving and caring for others.
But, I suspect, like me, that if you could find the time and motivation, you do want to take better care of yourself.
You want to eat right.
And you know you should exercise.
You may even feel like you have a calling to take better care of yourself. Perhaps even treat your body like a Holy temple.
You know self-care is essential. But there are barriers to your self-care success.
Worry no more.
You are in the right place.
If you are struggling to find the time or motivation to start taking better care of yourself, I pray that you make yourself at home here.
I don’t know specifically what you are dealing with today:
-It might be that the stress of taking care of others (as a mom or dad, as an adult child taking care of an aging or ill parent, or maybe even through your employment in healthcare or ministry) is interfering with taking proper care of yourself.
-Maybe you (or your spouse) are concerned about a new symptom(s). Perhaps you have been told that you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, or ‘borderline’ diabetes.
-You may feel called to start taking better care of yourself.
-Perhaps your healthcare provider mentioned those few extra pounds or those troublesome lab values… again. You know it is time to do something, but you do not know where to start.
-It might even be that you’ve felt bad for a while and you are just ready to feel better.
-Maybe you’re wanting to be able to maintain intimacy with your spouse as you age.
-Perhaps you desire to crawl around on the floor with your grandchildren.
Whatever the case, you know now is the time to start taking better care of yourself, change what you are doing, change your life, and live out your purpose.
Together, we will get you to where you think you should be.
Today is the day YOU CAN start taking better care of yourself.
