3 Keys to Building a Better Day Off

If your work is stressful, a day off should be a way to recharge and an oasis of rest and rejuvenation ... right?

How often are your days off simply playing catch up on a different punch list, punctuated by frustrating calls from the office or hospital? Let me show you some ways to ensure you are not doing laundry, mowing the lawn or  answering nurses questions on your day off.

In this short video, you will learn three essentials to building the highest quality day off possible. When you do these three things it will transform your day off into the oasis you are seeking. These tools are just as powerful and relevant to build a better, vacation or year-end holiday break. 

I even include what to say to the office or hospital if they call you on your day off - so they never call you again.

Stop Physician Burnout - Date Night Secrets

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

Date night secrets for the busy physician

Let me ask you a quick question. When was your last quality Date Night? If it was more than two months ago, this post is specifically for you.

One of the key factors in preventing physician burnout is a strong primary relationship with your loved ones. None is as important as your relationship with your spouse/significant other. 

Unfortunately a Date Night is often something that gets left out of our busy weeks. When I train groups of doctors is is not uncommon for half the hands to go up when I ask the question, "How many of you have not had a date night in the last two months." 

Date Nights are a key tool to prevent physician burnout

Here are five Date Night Secrets we teach all of our private coaching clients

Prevent Physician Burnout with our five-part EMR & Documentation Strategy - Video Training

Any time you survey physicians on the workplace stresses that are causing physician burnout - EMR / EHR and documentation chores (Patient Portal, InBox/Basket) will be listed as one of the top three stressors. This happens for obvious reasons.

[[ Download the EMR Strategy Action Plan Here ]]


1) You were taught to diagnose and treat disease and take care of patients - not hunt and peck at a keyboard.

Physician burnout, stress and performance - Video Training

The Relationship Between Physician Burnout, Stress and Performance - Video Training

In the Burnout Proof Live Training I always field the question, "Isn't stress a good thing too?". Here's the answer ...

It depends

Stress can motivate or destroy performance. It can drive a physician to do the best for their patients becoming the personification of the Hippocratic Oath ... or leave them curled on the floor in the fetal position too burned out to take another step. It does all of these things depending on where you are on the Stress vs. Performance Curve.
