Realizing that you’re smack dab in the throws of burnout doesn’t always happen when things start to look like they’re going awry. For many of us, our lives look absolutely pristine from the outside while we’re floundering on the inside looking for an escape from the life we’re living.
Dr. Sogol joins me on this episode and we talk about her experience with burnout that happened right at the height of her career as she had achieved everything on the list of the “American Dream.” Sometimes, reconciling with burnout is taking a step back from everything we think we should be doing and transitioning into the things we need to be doing.
A lot of the recovery from burnout happens in the form of recognizing our emotions and where they sit in our bodies. As physicians, this is a tricky concept because many of us become so desensitized from our work. Giving dire news to one patient’s family and then walking into the next patient's room, upbeat and encouraging makes it hard to be in tune with how you really feel.
Dr. Sogol and I talk all about the tips, tricks, and tools that we use to keep our minds and bodies connected and how we continue to battle against burnout with the accumulative effects of awareness and mindfulness.
Join us today to gain some insight into improving your demeanor with a handful of simple actions that can make a big payoff with consistent practice.
