September 16, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Los Angeles, CA - Scrubs magazine (scrubsmag.com), the first lifestyle magazine and website for nurses, debuted the Internet's first meditation tool designed just for nurses and their specific emotional needs. The "Meditation in Minutes" animated tool (http://scrubsmag.com/scrubs-meditation-tool) helps nurses deal with the particular stresses they encounter throughout the workday. Furthermore, it gives specific exercises that take into account a nurse's busy schedule and unique environment.
"Nurses can do these meditations in minutes, and right in the workplace," says Leslie Davenport, psychotherapist and author of Healing and Transformation Through Self-Guided Imagery, who helped develop the exercises for this innovative meditation tool. "A nurse can click into the tool from any Internet-enabled device to find an easy meditation designed to give peace of mind in the time frame she chooses."
"We know that almost everyone experiences stress," says Miriam Bookey, Editorial Director for scrubsmag.com. "But the problem is so serious in nursing that it actually puts patients at risk.* Now that more and more nurses are using smartphones at work, Scrubs can be right there to help them with a solution to an ever-present problem."
Nicole Lehr, a pediatric nurse at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, is an avid user of the tool. "Even just taking time to myself for a minute to think and breathe is helpful for me during a busy shift or when I feel as though work is emotionally draining me," says Nurse Lehr. "I like the tool's varying techniques because people can find which one works best for them based on their personality type and how they best relax and reflect."
"A nurse's workplace may not be a peaceful place, but we hope that with these meditations, nurses can find a serenity that they, in turn, can impart to their patients," added Davenport.
Scrubs content is 100 percent for and about nurses, and covers a range of lifestyle topics including beauty, money, style, health and wellness. Scrubs also appears as a print magazine with a circulation of 350,000, published three times a year and sold to more than 1,600 nursing apparel stores nationwide, with new stores added each month.
