Dr. Seema Desai finished dental school in 2008 and has been practicing off and on ever since. The problem was that no matter where she worked, who she worked with, or who her patients were, she never felt fulfilled. Why couldn’t she be happy “having it all”?
Instead of digging deeper into the cause of her dissatisfaction, she shifted gears and checked another box. She became a mom. She took a few years off with her first child, but ended up deep in the pit of undiagnosed postpartum depression.
Looking back she wishes she’d had the courage to seek professional help, but at the time she took steps to acknowledge where she was at, seek help from her inner circle, and invest in coaching. Her coach was also a yoga teacher and when she started her own yoga ritual she finally started to find her place.
Listen as Dr. Seema shares her story and the advice she wishes someone had given her when she was at her lowest. We had an amazing conversation that you won't want to miss if you’ve found yourself questioning whether or not checking all the boxes is truly fulfilling your purpose.
“Even the smallest advocacy for five minutes, for ten minutes for an hour, whatever it takes. That’s ok.” Dr. Seema DesaiIn this episode:
