A Travel Nurses Guide to Awe-Inspiring Places
Life comes at us quickly. Days rush by. Information overload can be overwhelming. As a travel nurse, you have a unique opportunity to travel to awe-inspiring places. Awe is a response to things that are perceptually vast, that we don’t fully understand at the moment. Some believe awe is a pathway to showing us our deeper purpose in life. People who experience awe, feel more connected to their community and have a better social well-being. How do we capture awe-inspiring moments that rejuvenate the soul; that feeling that brings about goosebumps, a feeling of euphoria or even tears? It’s not far, in fact, awe inspiring places are all around us. Be sure to turn off everything digital so you’re not distracted by calls, texts, and emails and implement these ways to bring awe-inspiring moments into your life. Here is a travel nurses guide to an awe-inspiriting adventure!
Step Out Into Nature:
Being one with nature promotes a sense of awe. Consider a travel nurse assignment in a location such as Guam. You can easily be inspired by the tropical beaches, latte stone pillars, waterfalls and incredible sunsets. Saipan is another extraordinary travel nurse assignment; take an awe walk on spectacular beaches or go hiking on the Forbidden Island. Learn to turn any travel nurse assignment into an awe walk by sharpening your senses.
Listen to Classical Music:
When you listen, really listen, to the complexity of classical music and how incredibly a composer such as Mozart carries out a dialogue of notes, it is truly awe inspiring. Try listening to classical music on your commute to work or before or after your shift. After a long day as a travel nurse, kick your feet up and have a glass of wine while listening to Bach or Beethoven. For a great and inspirational video on how to truly listen to classical music, watch the Ted Talk, The transformative power of classical music.
Travel the World:
As a travel nurse, you have exciting opportunities to see new places and experience new awe moments on countless travel nurse assignments. Jobs in some of the most beautiful places in the world are right at your fingertips. Visit places such as Guam, Alaska, California, Colorado and Florida to be awe-inspired by oceans, mountains and landscapes that will capture your sense of wonder.
Finding a moment of awe for a travel nurse can be a positive and powerful force on your physical and mental health. Awe is a natural stress reliever. Research shows that people who experience moments of awe are less impatient, more generous to strangers and more likely to help others in need. We are filled with feelings of connection to others. For travel nurses, finding awe in every day is an ideal way to rejuvenate and to transcend your understanding of the world.
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper” W.B. Yeats
