As Valentine's Day approaches, love is in the air.  So let's discuss 3 reasons to fall in love with a career in health care. 

 

1.  EXCITEMENT AND VARIATION

Healthcare is fast-paced and incredibly varied. You will deal with many different circumstances, situations, and people, and each of these is unique. You will always be on your toes because you never know what will happen.

2.  EMOTIONALLY REWARDING

Being a healthcare professional is an emotionally rewarding career. Although it can be very demanding, you will get the internal satisfaction of helping people improve their overall quality of life by providing them with efficient care.

 

Even a simple interaction can make all the difference in the world. You could help bring a new life into the world or save a life from ending; you have the ability to change lives. 

3.  JOB SECURITY - HEALTH CARE JOBS ARE HERE TO STAY

The concept of job security is largely gone as contract work and corporations have worked to maximize profits and cut labor costs. But not so much In healthcare. In fact, working in the healthcare industry means that your health care jobs are some of the most secure positions moving forward.

 

That’s because healthcare workers are in high demand, and they do a job that millions of people need every year. It’s one of the age-old sayings, people need food and water, and they need to remain healthy.

Chances are at some time in your life, you’ve made a New Year’s resolution — and then broken it. This year, stop the cycle of resolving to make a change and then not following through. If your resolution is to take better care of yourself and get healthy, you will have a much better year if your resolution sticks. Here are ten tips to help you get started.

 

1.  BE REALISTIC

The surest way to fall short of your goal is to make your goal unattainable. For instance, resolving to NEVER eat your favorite food again is setting you up to fail. Instead, strive for a goal that is attainable, such as avoiding it more often than you do now.

 

2.  PLAN AHEAD

Don’t make your resolution on New Year’s Eve. If you wait until the last minute, it will be based on your mindset that particular day. Instead, it should be planned well before December 31st arrives.

 

3.  OUTLINE YOUR PLAN

Decide how you will deal with the temptation to skip that exercise class or have that piece of cake. This could include calling on a friend for help, practicing positive thinking and self-talk, or reminding yourself how your “bad behavior” will affect your goal.

 

4.  MAKE A “PROS” AND “CONS” LIST

It may help to see a list of items on paper to keep your motivation strong. Develop this list over time, and ask others to contribute to it. Keep your list with you and refer to it when you need help keeping your resolve.

 

5.  TALK ABOUT IT

Don’t keep your resolution a secret. Tell friends and family members who will be there to support your resolve to change yourself for the better or improve your health. The best-case scenario is to find a buddy who shares your New Year’s resolution and motivate each other.

 

6.  REWARD YOURSELF

This doesn’t mean that you can eat an entire box of chocolates if your resolution is to eat a better diet. Instead, celebrate your success by treating yourself to something you enjoy that doesn’t contradict your resolution. If you have been sticking to your promise to eat better, for example, reward yourself with new fitness clothing or by going to a movie with a friend.

 

7.  TRACK YOUR PROGRESS

Keep track of each small success. Short-term goals are easier to keep, and each small accomplishment will help keep you motivated. Instead of focusing on losing 30 pounds, focus on losing the first five. Keep a food journal to help you stay on track, and reward yourself for every five pounds lost.

 

8.  DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP

Obsessing over the occasional slip won’t help you achieve your goal. Do the best you can each day, and take one day at a time.

 

9.  STICK TO IT

Experts say it takes about 21 days for a new activity to become a habit and six months for it to become part of your personality. It won’t happen overnight, so be persistent and patient!

 

10. KEEP TRYING

If you have totally run out of steam when it comes to keeping your resolution by mid-February, don’t despair. Start over again! Recommit yourself for 24 hours. You can do anything for 24 hours. The 24-hour increments will soon build on each other and, before you know it, you will be back on track.



Good luck with accomplishing your new year's resolution.

As the year comes to an end, people are starting to think about what they want to achieve in 2020. Whether it’s eating healthier, education or exercising, it’s important to keep the goals you set for the New Year. 

 

Unfortunately, a lot of people who set New Year’s resolutions rarely accomplish them. It’s easy to get caught up in the exhilarating feeling of starting over and becoming a better you. Read the following ways that can help you use realistic, actionable steps to help you set your goals and reach them!  

 

If you want to set and achieve your goals for the upcoming New Year, here are four tips to help you get started:

  1. Start small. Pick two or three smaller goals you want to accomplish for the upcoming year. When you’ve mastered them, you can move onto the next leg of the goal so it feels easier to overcome.
  2. Be intentional. When you hold yourself accountable, it’s easier to follow through with your goals because you’re pressing yourself to achieve them. Use art to create a vision board that shows the life you’re walking towards. 
  3. Set a deadline. The more specific you get about when you want to achieve your goals, the likelier you are to stick to them. Setting a timeline is a great way to reinforce your intentions and put your plan into action.
  4. Reward yourself. Sticking to goals isn’t easy. Instead of beating yourself up every time you fail, remind yourself that you’re human and these things happen. When you do overcome an obstacle, even a small one, treat yourself to something you enjoy. 
When you create goals, it’s crucial to stick to them so you see results and become the best version of yourself. People create goals to improve their lives, so if you struggle to achieve them, then it’s time to put rules in place.

Goals are crucial in achieving your desired dreams. Let us help you achieve some of your career and educational goals by taking one of the new allied health courses we have to offer including Phlebotomy Technician Hybrid and our Medication Aide Courses. See more info on our courses below!

Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Many will be traveling home and enjoying family for the Thanksgiving Season.  But now, we will barely have time to give thanks and finish dessert before rushing to shop for the best Christmas deals.

 

With the busy schedules, most people keep, perhaps there is something to be said for setting aside this day to give thanks and relax.

 

Here are a few ways to give thanks and celebrate Thanksgiving:

 

  • Find an organization where you can feed or help the homeless, then head home to start cooking and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • During your Thanksgiving dinner, ask each person to share a line of gratitude for each person seated at the table.
  • Watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving together as a family.
  • Use this time to sit down as a family and establish a new holiday tradition.
  • Write thank you notes to people who have made a difference in your life.
  • Set out a jigsaw puzzle for everybody to work on throughout the weekend.
  • Post an “I Am Thankful For…” list on the refrigerator and ask everybody to contribute to it. Write each item from the list on colorful strips of paper. Let someone read the list at Thanksgiving dinner.

 

Some may think these are the “old-fashioned” ways of celebrating Thanksgiving, but it’s truly a special day for families and friends.


Happy Thanksgiving from the Staff of New Hope Medical Training!  We are truly thankful for all the students who entrusted us to help start their career in the Health Care Field.
