Physicians are the first ones who care for other people's health. However, they have difficulty taking care of themselves and their wellness.
The medical profession is under immense pressure to perform more and more while sustaining the same level of quality, which can create a desire to place work above all as they care for patients and others around them. Yet, physicians need to prioritize their self-care, provide for themselves, and find time for rest.
Join the conversation with Dr. Alicia Shelly as we discuss running from burnout to wellness with mindset and margin. She enjoys running, traveling, and spending time with family in her free time, and by making some changes in her charting, she has been able to create the margin to continue her outside pursuits as she trains for an Ironman triathlon.
