Video: Cultivating Friendships

 

Friendships are important in life. It's natural that the nature of our work sets some obstacles in place to those friendships. This month's blog discusses the secret of cultivating and maintaining those friendships - intentionality and creativity.

Video: Holding too Many Manuals

acceptance manuals vlog Jul 31, 2021
 

This month's vlog is about how keeping manuals for how things "should be" and how people "should act" causes some unnecessary drama and suffering.  Since we can't control people, wishing they were different causes us more pain. Acceptance is such a healthy way to live. But that doesn't mean you can't have "asks" or work to improve things. Stay tuned for next month's vlog on boundaries to see how these two concepts go hand-in-hand.

If you know of a resident or faculty who is struggling,...

Video: Quieting the Inner Critic

 

Developing awareness that the repeated negative things you think of yourself are not actual facts is the first step in of quieting the inner critic. In this video, I give you a sneak peek inside my brain .  (More detail is given in my written blog.)

Video: Self-Care is not selfish

 

Self-care isn't going to remove all the various external difficulties in the system, but it will bolster your natural resilience and renew your energy for the tasks at hand. 

Recognize that you need to recharge regularly. You will have more energy and presence in all other areas of your life. It is not selfish. Pick one area you know you'd benefit from if done regularly.

1. Prioritize it and put it on the schedule.

2. Keep your promise to yourself.

3. Have fun rediscovering what is...

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. Please don't fall for it. 

Have a joy-filled day!  Tonya

Video: Exploring Limiting Beliefs

 

In this month's Vlog I discuss limiting beliefs and how you can start to uncover them and decide if you want to change them or not.  

As a physician, they can show up in your career or outside of work. How do you describe yourself? What things do you believe about yourself that are keeping you from growth, reaching for higher goals, or just keeping you stuck?  Do you want to be chief? Do you want to climb the academic ladder? Maybe you had a fleeting thought of becoming the CMO? Are...

Video: Easy veggie recipe

 

When you have many raw veggies, but not enough of any one type - this is a delicious, no thinking plan.

Dice them all up, mix with olive oil, salt and pepper, minced garlic and any spice that seems to go with your meal or even no additional spices.

Place them on pan on top of parchment paper or a silicone roasting mat in single layer, roast at 425-450 degrees F in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Then, flip them and  roast another 10-15 minutes or until done to your liking.
