New Podcast Episode: Why Healthcare is the Ultimate Team Sport with Linda McHugh
A few minutes of mindfulness sets the tone for your day. Kickstart your morning with a happy thought and a glass of water. After a glass of water, eat a meal that will give you energy for the upcoming day.
Set personal or professional goals each week or month, or even for the year, so you have something to work towards. How will you contribute?
Find things to look forward to such as a hike with friends or a safe day out. As we come out of the pandemic fog, let the travel and adventures begin!
Perhaps one of the good aspects of 2020 was our ability to learn to become more flexible. Learn to live a more agile and flexible life. Build in the ability to change plans. Flexibility also builds resilience.
2020 has taught us how precious life is and why we should celebrate more big and small “moments” of our lives.
The importance of being grateful cannot be overstated. Whether for our health, our family & friends, our jobs, or our ability to serve. Think about developing a simple “trigger” each time you wash your hands to think about what you are grateful for. Here are easy ways to practice gratitude at work.

For this episode in our healthcare subseries, we’re revisiting our conversation with Dennis Murphy (@dennismurphy340), President and CEO of IU Health. Being smart and healthy is essential to running a successful organization.
IU Health is a healthcare mecca with 35,000 employees, 17 hospitals, and 400 locations statewide. Their culture is driven by one uniting mission: to make Indiana the healthiest state in the country.
Over the last 30 years, Dennis has amassed a wide range of leadership experience in organizations of all sizes. Along the way, he’s learned the building blocks for a healthy culture remain the same, whether you have 40 employees or 40,000.
How do you diagnose and improve your organizational health? Listen in as Dennis and Nikki break it down.
In collaboration with Wambi, the Gut + Science Podcast Healthcare Series hosted by Nikki Lewellen, Director of Partnerships at Wambi, highlights accomplished, people-first healthcare CEOs (and executives) that share their powerful mindsets, experiences and tools that have helped them succeed. The show encompasses all areas of human capital at work and the successful best practices that breed healthy, engaged organizations.
The Gut+Science Healthcare Series, sponsored by Wambi, brings the best influencers and leaders in healthcare to share best practices, stories, and lessons to build stronger people-first healthcare institutions.
Vicki Hess is an engagement expert, author, thought-leader, and speaker, and she is passionate about inspiring healthcare leaders to take action and transform engagement.
Listen in as she and Nikki reveal the tools you need to create the environment you want to work in:
Christmas is fast approaching! If the frenzy and chaos of 2020 has knocked you off your feet, these last-minute gifts for healthcare workers are here to save the day! Desperate shoppers, rejoice! Each one of these gifts has been carefully hand-selected, featuring recommendations and suggestions from the Wambi flock and our friends in healthcare.
A shoe made for nurses, by nurses. On the top of our gifts for healthcare workers list are these orthopedic shoes that don’t compromise aesthetics for comfort. Thanks to the shoes’ popularity, the sneakers are backordered until January, giving last-minute shoppers a valid reason for the tardiness.
Make hydration joyful. This 1-gallon water bottle measures hydration progress across the typical 12-hour shift for healthcare workers on graveyard shifts. And words of affirmation cheer you on at every milestone!
Every cup helps a pup. For the animal-loving healthcare workers in your life, this limited-edition coffee bundle featuring two of the brand’s most popular blends supports animal rescue missions across the USA.
One of our nursing friends shared that wearing PPE masks over 12 hours a day has done serious damage to her skin. She raved about these silk masks, which are much gentler on her tired skin and help her feel pampered during her off-hours. Available in 7 colors.
Revitalize a worn-out mask with this refreshing spray packed with lavender and tea tree oil. This BIPOC-owned small business was inspired by the founder’s dad, Will, who was very ill. During his hospitalization, his son came up with solution to stimulate his memory through the power of scent and thus, the Way of Will was born.
Teas for every mood. This gift suggestion was inspired by our resident RN at Wambi, Dr. Bonnie Clipper, who sips a cup of Moroccan Mint Tea every afternoon. For nurses with jam-packed days, simplicity is essential to fast decision-making.

Banish the first signs of varicose veins with these fashionable compression socks. Not only do they work their magic on tired calves, but for every pair purchased, a pair is donated to a homeless shelter. Did you know that socks are the most requested item at homeless shelters? 3 pairs = 3 donations.
With the aggressive amounts of hand sanitizer being used at hospitals these days, the cracked hands of hardworking healthcare workers will thank you with this nourishing, heavy-duty salve that instantly moisturizes.
An ultrasound technician from Kaiser Permanente shared with us that lanyards are the only way she gets to personalize her outfit. With over 30 patterns and prints to choose from, make these lanyards the stylish and low-lift accessory for any healthcare worker.
This metal lunch pot is perfect for soup season. Healthcare workers can easily store their meals in this split-compartment container, keeping snacks in the clear leak-proof lid and hot foods in the BPA-free canister.
Gift that special healthcare worker in your life a gift card to their favorite restaurant as a way to take care of them. Tibi Samuel, our Associate Business Analyst, shared: “I know after 12-hour shifts, all my nurse friends want to do is just go out to eat!”
Modern, form-flattering scrubs with utility features like multiple functional zippered pockets, adjustable drawstrings, and interior security pockets. Did we mention they also sell underscrubs and lab coats?
“This is a gift for my mom who is a respiratory therapist,” writes Millette Stambaugh, the Digital Marketing Coordinator at Wambi. “My mom works the graveyard shift and her body clock is totally off most of the time. This year, I want to give her this soothing light alarm clock that will wake her body up naturally by mimicking the sun’s glow. Light therapy for the win!”
Out of all the bag options on the market, this ultralight tote bag made our gifts for healthcare workers list because of its efficiency. Not only does it have large enough side pockets for any miscellaneous objects, but it’s easy to wash, making sanitation less of a chore. Comes in three colors.
These no-fuss modern pens get straight to the point. Our Marketing Associate, Chris Gregorio, emphasized that healthcare workers always need pens while making their rounds. This colorful assortment will make sure none of your pens go rogue!
If your budget cannot accommodate any indulgent spending this year, give the gift of kindness using our Carepostcard platform. Send words of appreciation to that special healthcare worker in your life using Wambi’s virtual postcard platform. These messages of gratitude will be shared not only with the world, but with the people who matter the most – our frontline healthcare workers. Happy holidays!
