Show Notes

Welcome back to Sevo sistas! In today's episode, we're diving deep into a topic that's particularly relevant to healthcare professionals: how to navigate and persevere through challenging times. We've put together a valuable 3-part framework to help anesthesiologists thrive in adversity.

Segment 1: Be intentional on bringing joy into your day

  • Cannot assume anyone else can take care of you better than you
  • Bring into your world that which brings you joy and peace

Segment 2: It takes a village

  • Highlight the role of support networks, including colleagues, mentors, and professional organizations.

Segment 3: Transform inside and out

  • Environment trumps will.  If your environment does not support your growth during your difficult time- you must change the environment. 
  • Sometimes something as simple as a haircut or change in hair color can uplift your mood and remind you that you are a new person now. 

Conclusion:

  • Summarize the 3-part framework for navigating hard times:
    1. How can you bring light into the darkness on a regular basis?
    2. Who is in your community?  Is it a health community?
    3. Does how you feel on the inside align with what you see in the mirror?  Is it time for a change in hair or wardrobe?
