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 August 2021 slideshow on how to take control of your immediate environment, Jeff Davidson writes the following:
Individuals who control aspects of their environment may be able to perform better in fast-paced and stressful situations as well as more easily recover from that performance. Here are four ways to take control of your immediate environment when you have the option to do so.
1). Control the sound level, quality of sound, and the type of sound you are exposed to - Seek opportunities to close doors, turn off noisy equipment, or, if needed, turn on equipment for its white noise capabilities.
2). Do the same on a visual basis - Adjust the lighting (both natural and artificial) to find that level of lumens that works for you.
3). Limit the potential for interruption - Whether it's posting a note on your door or leaving a message on your voicemail, let others know when you need to have an uninterrupted, quiet stretch.
