Remote Working

Remote working has pros and cons. Did you know? One of the biggest challenges faced by remote employees is loneliness and feeling disconnected.

Here are a few things you can do to combat feelings of loneliness:

👋 Connect with someone once a week – plan and schedule time to connect with family, friends and colleagues

🌲 Get outdoors – nature can have a positive effect on mental and physical health

📅 Set a routine – a routine provides people with boundaries and expectations, allowing them to feel a sense of purpose

November is #NationalDiabetesMonth

#NationalDiabetesMonth strives to raise awareness and continue the conversation surrounding the #diabetes epidemic.

Here are some tips for diabetes self-management from PCN nurses:

🥦 Eat a healthy diet. This includes limiting processed foods and choosing foods rich in fiber and nutrients

🏃🏾 Get regular exercise. Exercise helps to regulate blood sugar levels and can also help to reduce stress

🩸 Monitor your blood sugar levels regularly. This will help you identify patterns and make necessary adjustments to your diet and lifestyle

❌ Avoid tobacco use. Tobacco can damage your blood vessels and increase your risk for complications from diabetes
