    Ep. 8 Stress Today

    Ep. 8 Stress Today

    In this episode I share with you a chapter from a book called Burnout written by Emily and Amelia Nagoski.  The chapter is called ”The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle”.  There are some things regarding stress that have changed dramatically over the decades and there are some things that have remained remarkably the same. I review the different kinds of stressors we have in the modern day as well as talk about how we can learn to process our stress.   I am especially excited that there are many different options presented and hopefully, there will be away for everybody.

    Ep. 7 Working Mom Guilt

    Ep. 7 Working Mom Guilt

    Today I talk about one of the most common issues women physicians deal with: working mom’s guilt. I remember being told I could have it all, but no one told me how hard it would be to miss out on my daughters milestones and activities.  I want to share some facts proven by studies that children are not adversely affected by having a working mother. I think this was one of my biggest worries.  I share some ideas from research and from my own experience to hopefully make your parenting more enjoyable. Please remember this: “None of us I decided to have children planning to be miserable and punish ourselves”.

    Ep. 6 Requests and Boundaries

    Ep. 6 Requests and Boundaries

    In this episode, I explain the difference between making requests and setting boundaries with the people in your life.  Most of us cringe thinking about boundaries, but the opposite is true.  Knowing how to develop a boundary correctly can make your relationships more true and authentic.  I explain how to set a boundary and some of the challenges involved.  I cover when to set a boundary and when NOT to do it.  I give some example jargon that can be used to make the process easier.

    Ep. 5 Manuals

    Ep. 5 Manuals

    Today I explain what a Manual is.  Yes, it's like an instruction manual for other people.  The catch is that we believe the person needs to behave a certain way so WE can be happy.   In the end, humans have free will.  They may not always do what you want.  Husbands do not take out the trash, anyone?  But worse is when we allow our feelings to be controlled by others' actions, we give away all of our power. Coaching teaches us that we always choose to decide how we think and feel.

    Ep. 3 How To Say No

    Ep. 3 How To Say No

    Today I talk about saying no. I really believe this is one of the most important skills that every physician  needs to learn to manage their burnout.  I talk about some of the reasons it is so hard to say no and give you so easy examples to use when you are stumbling for words. So often we say no because of the fear we have about what the requester is going to think or feel. And most importantly, I remind you that we don't know what they are going to think and there is no way to control it anyway.
    (02:45) Is it wrong to say no?
    (03:02) Saying no is one of the most important skills
    (03:18) Why is saying no so hard?
    (04:03) Studies
    (04:26) Patterns may begin in childhood
    (05:10) People-pleasing
    (06:16) The “pay-back-trap”
    (07:24) NO should be your default answer
    (07:44) Benefits of Saying NO
    (08:26) Be Clear
    (09:18) Show Gratitude
    (09:38) Give an explanation or NOT
    (11:10) Offer an alternative
