We have successfully coached hundreds of doctors back from burnout. One of the key components to preventing physician burnout is restoring some balance to your life. You must chisel out some space in your weeks for yourself and the important people in your life for one simple reason ...

When you are stressed at work --- home is where you must be able to recharge 

There has to be some balance or you will eventually tumble into the downward spiral of burnout

I know for a fact that you did not learn this in residency - no one does. Residency is where you learn to keep going right through complete exhaustion ... and beyond.

In fact, residency faculty members often model just the opposite ... the chronically burned out and unbalanced doctor. Now you will see certain older physicians who have this figured out. They have outside interests, seem more relaxed, have great relationships with their significant other ... I can tell you many of them went through an episode of their own burnout few years back. That burnout was how they learned the tools to create their more balanced life.

Bypass the crisis ... take the shortcut to work life balance

One of the keys to de-stressing your days and living a richer, more satisfying life is BALANCE … specifically … more work-life balance. I have written before about how your medical career is like living with an #800 Gorilla.

The Gorilla rampages through your life, doing whatever he pleases and leaving no room for your family, your interests outside medicine or even  your own health and fitness in some cases. Achieving more Work-Life Balance is a process PUTTING THE GORILLA ON A DIET by giving it some boundaries and creating more balance between medicine and the rest of your life. In the end it is still a Gorilla … just one that doesn’t outweigh YOU.
