THE HOLIDAYS ARE TIME FOR US TO SNAP OUT OF IT
As healthcare professionals we live and work in a world that is more serious, intense and draining than most other people do.
Our medical education journey and academic success places us in a trance where we see the world through the eyes of responsibility, hard work and life and death decisions.
But just like when Jim Carey discovers life outside the Truman Show, I have discovered there is an entirely different world that plays and succeeds by different rules.
As important and serious as medicine is, there exists an entire world outside of healthcare for us to discover and enjoy.
In order to better understand, relate, hear and heal others, I have joined these other worlds to rest, to refuel, and to expand my life experience.
Snap out of it!
The lights, music and parties of the holidays are an opportunity and reminder for me to celebrate life, for us to enjoy our families and friends and revel in the wonder that the world can offer us.
There is a lot more to life than work and medicine.
Breaking Out of the Medical Mindset wants to help you revel in how blessed you are to be alive.
Life can be more beautiful and exciting if we step out of our serious intense world and take a deep breath.
Laugh. Sing. Love.
