How full is your wellness bucket?
Your resilience bucket?
Are you making time for regular self-care and wellness activities that build your resilience?
For health care providers, especially those in hospital-based practice, burn-out rate is very high.
The National Academy of Medicine is running a series of open meetings on "Clinician Well-Being". These 2018 meeting sessions were webcasted and recorded. You can view the recordings on YouTube and read the related discussion papers on their website.
Remember, in integrative health, a core tenet of the practice, whichever your specific discipline, follows this basic idea, "Physician, heal thyself".
