3 Tips to Help Locum Tenens Providers Build Capacity in the New Year

The new year is the perfect time for reflection and self-improvement. But being a locum tenens physician can make this quite difficult, especially during the busy winter months. Before you commit to any resolutions or self-improvement projects it’s important to identify priorities and make time for the things that matter most.

Below are 3 helpful tips that will help you build capacity during the busy times.

  1. Identify your top 5 areas of focus (not goals). This isn’t a professional or personal list of goals. Create a list of priories in all aspects of your life.
  2. Intentionally create brief interruptions during your day. Think of the outcome that you want to achieve and compare that to your daily tasks. Consider setting a reminder in your phone to help you slow down and reflect on your day.
  3. Identify one personal habit that is impacting your capacity. Try a new approach and and make it happen consistently to form a habit.

We wish you luck in all of your endeavors this year!
