003: Are You a Healthcare Practitioner who Struggles with Self-Care? You’re Not Alone!
As medical practitioners, we all give lots of advice. We all say we know how to fix things, and people come to us for answers to their toughest questions. However, with our busy schedules, it’s easy for us to fail to practice what we truly believe in – and we often don’t take care of ourselves like we should.
It’s so easy for us to give to others that we end up neglecting our own mental and physical well-being and fall into routines that don’t serve us, and this can make it harder for us to deliver the best possible patient outcomes. We need to set a good example by taking care of ourselves.
Today’s episode is all about getting “unstuck” when it comes to taking care of our own health, why you don’t need to go to the Cleveland Clinic to get a clear picture of how your mind and body are doing, and how to set a work/life balance that will set you up for success both in the office and at home.
- Why we can’t be objective with our own health.
- Why it’s so important to be honest and held accountable when it comes to the struggles and challenges you face with diet, exercise, and illness.
- How to stop staring at emails and Facebook for hours each day and make the most productive use of your screen time.
- What you can do to create morning and evening routines that allow for real self-care.
ShareableAs practitioners, we love helping people, and that's a good thing. But it can also be a bad thing because when we help others, we often put the emphasis on them and we forget about ourselves. – Dr. Ronda Nelson Click To Tweet
