You can’t take care of patients properly until you take care of yourself. Recently, I’ve had a few health issues come up in my life. I had to take a few days off of work, and it’s really funny how when I came back, patients were telling me that they noticed my energy level drop during the times that I was sick. Even though I didn’t tell them anything, they could sense that I wasn’t my high-energy self. If you don’t take care of yourself, it’s going to eventually show up in your work life.
As a private practice owner, sometimes you feel as though you can’t get away from your business. You have this feeling that if you leave the business, everything will fall apart. The truth of the matter is that if you don’t take care of yourself it’s going to fall apart whether you leave or not. Check out this blog that I did today on some of the health changes that I’ve done in my life.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
