120 Summer Days to Take Advantage of!

120 Summer Days Tips for Medical Professionals to Take Advantage OfSummer is officially here! Now that the polar vortex is long gone, get ready to lather up some sunscreen and get outside! With significantly longer days during the summer months, soak up the sun and take full advantage of your days off! Whether you choose to go on a walk around the local park or have a beach-day getaway, the possibilities for summer fun are endless. Here are some tips from the Uniform Advantage Family on how they plan on spending their summer vacation.

Take a beach vacation: For some, fortunately a beach is just a reasonable drive away! Grab your friends or family, and bring some delicious snacks and set up your umbrellas at a nearby beach. Whether you choose to get some R&R and read a book or take a walk on the wild side with a banana boat tour, your quick summer escape will leave you feeling light-hearted and at ease.

Treat yourself to a vacation! “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine. Medical professionals, we know that you work extremely hard. Reward yourself for your dedication to your job with a vacation or stay-cation! Visit your favorite vacation destination or step outside of your comfort zone and experience new places with delicious cuisine, landmarks, and fun activities. Expanding your horizons and world-view is only a plane ticket or road trip away.

Run a 5k! Although running for fun is a foreign concept to most people, doing a 5k is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy summer’s beautiful days while setting a goal that will improve your health. Enroll in a 5k run with a friend to make training and the big day packed with fun! Many of these runs support nonprofit organizations and help fundraise to raise awareness so you are doing yourself and others a service by being active.120 Summer Days Tips for Medical Professionals to Take Advantage Of

Revamp your wardrobe! Updating your wardrobe gives you a cleansing, “new you” feeling that is perfect for the start of summer. Complement nature’s vibrant summer shades with a bright wardrobe of your own. Stay cool and look stylish with a simple, floral-patterned sundress. Or mix it up with a bold color-blocked wardrobe featuring bright shades, such as yellow and navy. Keep your eyes protected with a trendy pair of sunglasses. Popular sunglass styles this summer include cat-eye, mirrored, round, and retro looks! Tie your look together with a statement bag that tells everyone that you’re ready to hit the runway! To add some color into your professional wear, check out Uniform Advantage’s Hot Summer Sale! From prints boasting a wide array of colors to solid tops showcasing summer’s hottest colors, our selection is sure to wow you!

5 Quick and Easy Red, White & Blue Treats!

Memorial Day is the day that we remember and honor those who have lost their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Though we’ve been celebrating Memorial Day for almost 150 years in this country, the spirit of the holiday remains the same even today. However, the way in which we celebrate has certainly changed over the years. Where it began a sad, mourning holiday, it has grown into a celebration of life, a time to be with our loved ones and honor those lost.

Everyone is talking about their Memorial Day plans to vacation, bbq, or just relax. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to take time off from being a superhero, like so many of you in the healthcare industry! Just because you may have to work, doesn’t mean you can’t still partake in Memorial Day cravings. For those with crazy hours or barely enough time to each lunch, take some quick snacks for you and your work family to enjoy this Memorial Day weekend with some red, white & blue themed treats.

Here is a list of 5 Quick and Easy ones that will get you started:

  1. I pledge allegiance to the flag – All you need is a platter, grab some Blueberries, yogurt pretzels and cut up strawberries and be the center of attention with this delightful, healthy, and Memorial Day themed treat for your entire floor!
  1. Dip baby dip – Dip the most delicious berry in melted milk, dark, or white chocolate and toss on star shaped sprinkles. However, you don’t have to get fancy…even if you put chocolate on the side with a container of sprinkles and strawberries, it would still be a hit!
  1. Mocktails are better than cocktails – We know this is for work, so it can’t be a true cocktail…but flavored juices, whether freshly made or not, can cool you down when your shift gets too much to handle. Make up some fun names or use red, white and blue cups!
  1. The rockets’ red glare – Pack up some twizzlers that look like rockets and lay them out in grabbing reach…add some black licorice pieces to give it a kick!
  1. Bright stars thru the perilous fight – If you want to stick with some of the healthier choices, this easy cut-out technique will leave everyone in awe. Try using a star cookie cutter with all types of fruit like pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon…etc! This is also is a great way to get your kids to eat fruits!

 

Hopefully, some of these will inspire your own creations. You can’t bring in red, white & blue themed treats without dressing the part! Make sure you sport your red, white & blue Uniform Advantage scrubs, or some of our fun holiday prints.

We would love to see some of your red, white & blue creations! Send us pictures, links, recipes…whatever you have, we’d love to see it and share it.

How to choose the right colors for your Scrubs

Colors revive the mind, body and soul and it also saps your energies. Have you ever worn one of your favorite colored nursing uniforms and it lifts the mood of your coworkers and patients as they see you? You get a lot of compliments and you feel happy and they feel happy. Everyone’s happy!

There is truth to the energies that colors emit and there is no escaping them as they are all around you. Guys traditionally wear dark colors and women wear all colors and prints depending on their personality and mood. These two things influence your choices in choosing your scrubs and sometimes they conflict with each other.

Colors are a powerful communication tool and it is therapeutic as well as expressive. It is Spring time and a lot of yellows, pinks, oranges, bright shades of greens and blues will be worn as well as purple which is a trendy color this season for nursing scrubs. So what does each color mean? Check out Uniform Advantage’s Color Psychology guide to help you choose your nursing uniforms.

 

Red is stimulating, energetic and represents survival.

Royal Blue is calm, trusting and reflective.

Green represents harmony and peace and refreshment and restoration.

Pink is all about love, nurture and warmth.

Brown is naturalistic, reliable and supportive.

Orange is also a warm color and represents passion and abundance.

White is hygienic and simple.

Purple is meditative, spiritually aware and truthful.

Black shows security, represents sophistication and efficiency.

 

What is your #favorite color and why? Leave us a comment. We would love to hear from you!
