Your weekly dose of wisdom from the Physicians Practice experts.
With all the useful information available on Physicians Practice, it is easy to become overwhelmed.
With this in mind, the tip of the week is a chance to reflect on some of the wisdom found all across the site. In the May 2021 article on a practical approach to work-life balance, Drew Boxler writes the following:
At the American College of Physicians (ACP) Internal Medicine Meeting 2021, Jason S. Schneider, MD, FACP , associate professor of medicine at Emory University, gave a presentation advising physicians on how to achieve a better work-life integration.
Below is Schneider’s ‘practice approach’ to attaining a work-life balance:
1). Liberate yourself from unrealistic expectations – meet your own personal professional goals.
2). Prioritize your wellness – make sure you’re carving out time in your days, weeks, and months for those important activities that help restore you as a person.
3). Detach and unplug – our technology is a convenience and helps us help run our lives more efficiently, but they can also be detractors from wellness.
