"With great power comes great responsibility." Responsibility is the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.

Why does spirituality matter? Spirituality is an important part of many people's lives as it can provide a sense of purpose, connection, and peace. It can help us to understand our place in the world and to make sense of the struggles we face in our lives. It can also provide us with a source of strength and comfort, as well as an opportunity to co…
 
We have all been told not to have expectations. If they are not present, there will be no letdown. Yet it is human to hold expectations, and in medicine, they are as high as the stakes.

We are creative beings (h…
 
What comes to mind when discussing hustle culture? Do you think it is true that people are rewarded for pushing through and collecting accolades, financial security?

It is no secret that documentation has become burdensome in medicine. Physicians did not go to extended schooling and training to write notes that appease insurance and the legal system.

As discussed in a beginning series [two of the first episodes of the podcast], Dr. Bean, a physio psychologist, discussed four boxes to see if our lives are balanced.

We are spiritual beings. It is integral to the human essence and soul. We have lost the understanding and awareness of our physiology. We don't recognize distress from flight or fight.

Physician’s are trained to put patients’ needs above their own at all costs. Sick? Take medicine and power through. Feeling depressed and lethargic?

On…
 
We know that life as a physician gets busy. We neglect ourselves, our relationships, and our own humanity at times.

Dustin Steffey and Jaden Norvell sat down and shared their perspec…
 
Doctors are admired for dedicating their lives to jobs that are vital to the health of our society, which makes it easy to see them as superhumans. Even within the medical profession itself, doctors are taught in a stoic culture with militaristic training that results in lack of sleep, food, and self. This education affects the health of doctors th…
 
Being a physician is not easy by any means. We live in a fast paced world, that is just getting faster and faster. We are constantly bombarded with messages for work or play, and other sounds from the world around us. As for physicians, we are like race car drivers...always going at our top speed! We need to learn to pump the breaks before we crash…

We have boundaries, physical, mental, emotional, and so the same can carry over into medicine. It really is okay to say no.
