Video: Cultivate What Matters


This month's vlog focuses on important relationships. Learning to be intentional in cultivating creative time now is key to maintaining and growing relationships.  Try to limit putting relationships on auto-pilot.  The arrival fallacy hurts relationships - thinking "after residency," "after fellowship," "after I get my practice up and running", I'll have time to spend with those important to me.

Have a joy-filled day!  Tonya

Video: Fast and healthy are not mutually exclusive.


By spending 5 minutes on meals before leaving for work- you can find a healthy breakfast and prep a healthy lunch. Here are my go - to's. You can find your own.
