#NursesActive Feel Fantastic February

Saturday 16th January 2021 by @WeNurses

One morning .... quite recently .... we woke up and thought "it's a whole 6 months until the next WeActiveChallenge!" Quite shocking really and we don't know about you but we could definitely do with a little motivation right now, it's been a tough start to the year.

Taking care of ourselves is, now more than ever, the last thing on our lists even though we all know that "you can't pour from an empty cup" and "you need to put your own oxygen mask on before helping others" the saying is easier than the doing. 

#NursesActive has always been about getting a little more active where and when you can and appreciating the link between being a little more activity and our mental health. So throughout February we have a little, tiny, mini #NursesActive challenge for you FEEL FANTASTIC FEBRUARY and it's all about putting on your metaphorical oxygen mask and topping up that imaginary cup.

We want you to set your own #NursesActive challenge for February then share that challenge on Twitter, put yourselves on our map (yes we have a map woo hoo! See below on how to join the map) then share your pics throughout the month to inspire and motivate others and get inspired and motivated yourself.

Here's how to get involved:

1. Choose your February fitness goal - it can be walking to work once a week, opting to use the stairs during the month, running 10k, cycling once a week .... it's your challenge it's up to you! 

2. Share your goal using #NursesActive on Twitter, via a selfie, a screenshot, or a simple tweet (click here for a Feel Fantastic February printout for your goal selfie) Add your city or the first part of your postcode to get on the #NursesActive Feel Fantastic February Map!

3. Share your progress updates and photos as often as you like, encourage and support others using #NursesActive

5. On Sunday 28th Feb at 8pm share your achievement via #NursesActive with another selfie, screenshot or tweet! 


As with our August challenges #NursesActive isn't about running a marathon (although you are very welcome to) it's about getting a little more active in a way that suits you.  And remember you don't have to be a nurse to get involved; people who are student nurses, retired nurses, friends of nurses, family of nurses and "I met a nurse once" are all welcome.    


The map will be live soon and shown below.

To have your tweets added onto the map send a tweet in the following format "I'm doing #NursesActive in" then add where you are, you can add a postcode (First half or full) or a city. The #NursesActive FEEL FANTASTIC FEBRUARY map will share your tweets and mark your active efforts on the map automatically once you have sent the joining tweet. For ease, you can hit the tweet button below and just fill in the blank:

PS We are taking a PDSA approach to #NursesActive Feel Fantastic February so if it works and we get lots of enthusiasm we will look to extending it to other professions next year.
