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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
