Valentine’s Day treats to give yourself while on a travel nursing assignments, from Aureus Medical, nationwide leader in healthcare staffing

Omaha, NE, (January 24, 2014) - Travel nurses are often far away from loved ones, which can include parents, siblings, and friends that you may normally spend holidays like Valentine's Day with, while on assignment. Healthcare staffing agency, Aureus Medical Group, believes Valentine's Day when you are away can be a great opportunity to be self-indulgent.

"If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you'll resent the energy you give another person that you aren't even giving yourself," Dr. Barbara De Angelis, a relationship specialist, explained in her book, "Are You the One For Me?"

Give yourself the pampering and pleasures you deserve while on a travel nursing job! Here are a few ideas:

Red wine. In addition to the high levels of antioxidants and flavonoids found in this beverage, red wine is also a great drink to have before bed to help you relax and unwind after a long day. Splurge for a type that you have been wanting to try from a region in Australia or Spain.

Massage. Working the tension out of your lower back, shoulders, arms and neck can do wonders for your physical and mental health! While on assignment, it can be easy to let certain tissue get worked up throughout the day, depending on what type of assistance you are providing your patients. Sign yourself up for an hour-long massage. It can help with anxiety, mood swings and may even help reduce pain from a previous injury.
