As healthcare professionals, we know what we need to do for our physical and mental well-being. So why aren’t we doing it?

Often, the first thing we give up when we get busier is something that makes our lives happier. We’ve normalised giving up our basic needs to make room for productivity. No one bats an eye at it anymore. But is living your one shot at life like this really worth it at the end of the day?

In this quick dip episode, we talk about the one thing you can do right now for your well-being. The biggest barrier to well-being is not knowledge; it’s setting aside time to do it. It will feel uncomfortable, but we don’t have to give up the thing that makes us happy to make room for busyness. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself burned out before you realise what’s happening.

If you want to know how to start prioritising your well-being as you get busier in life, stay tuned to this episode.
