I’ve noticed #burnout is coming up as a topic more in newsrooms. If we don’t solve this as an industry, we will continue to lose incredible people we can’t afford to lose. However, my view has changed on solutions...
I’m a big advocate of self-care, but this @HarvardBiz article by @JenLeighMoss changes some of my thinking. “…burnout is more than just an employee problem; it’s an organizational problem that requires an organizational solution.”
The research showed six reasons for burnout #culture:
1. Unsustainable workload
2. Perceived lack of control
3. Insufficient rewards for effort
4. Lack of a supportive community
5. Lack of fairness
6. Mismatched values and skills.

As part of my #selfcare routine I've started going to #therapy ❤️

It’s important to be vocal about #mentalhealth & normalise treatment 💬

If you’re considering starting, go for it—you deserve care.

Here are 4 things I’ve learned about myself from doing therapy 👇
I’m more anxious than I realise 😓

I only realise once I speak my thoughts out loud and get them out of my head 🤯

I’m always surprised by what I’ve actually been holding on to!

It feels good to acknowledge this....
I’m not as “fine” as I first thought!

Small things I pass off as ‘minor’ every day clearly build up to have an impact on my mental health 🧠

Making them more ‘known’ to myself has been helpful & enlightening 💡

Almost there...👇

If you need a mental / #SelfCare break, tune in to something uplifting ... We're staaaaarting! First up, @USChamber Pres. Suzanne Clark is interviewing @NEAArtsChair @MACartsDC & Annette Bening. #StarringRole…
LOVE @NEAArtsChair @MACartsDC comment about how the arts unite us. It's true!! ♥️ #StarringRole
By definition, they require imagination and expanding one's mind. For example, when you see an actor, you're picturing them as the person they're depicting — not solely thinking: "Hey, that's ____!" #StarringRole

{THREAD} I always find it interesting when folks see nice pics of a married couple and use #GOALS

As I sit here in the still of the night and I reflect on the past year, I am reflecting on what real marriage goals are! /1
This past year, my wife and I weathered one of our toughest seasons yet. And our love never wavered but we had to remain committed to weather the storm that was 2020 /2
From navigating a sick parent, a furloughed job, a pandemic, an unexplained injury (during the pandemic), 2 kids out of school, closing a lifelong fam biz in another country and a bunch of other emotional & financial stresses... we remained committed to help each other thru /3

Dealing with dying patients.


A 🧵
I was prepping for a panel discussion with medical students on death and dying. Had to get some thoughts together based on my experience as a military intensivist so I thought I would share.
I’ve experienced my share of death. Of course the typical “taking terminal patients through the dying process” kind of stuff that every internist and intensivist deals with…

@rcbregman @ZeroDean “Post-traumatic growth: People derive long-term benefits from painful experiences, including more appreciation for life, richer relationships, greater resilience, and deeper spirituality.” @arthurbrooks

@rcbregman @ZeroDean @arthurbrooks Four fav proverbs:

As long as you live, keep learning how to live.

A thing is bigger for being shared.

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.

Light candles when you can.

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases from being shared.”…

For all of my social justice friends who are anxious about #Elections2020 right now, here are some pro-tips.

1) Turn off your TVs. They’re presenting you with a lot of unnecessary information that is likely increasing your anxiety. They want you anxiously glued. #Ratings
2) Go to print media (via their online platforms). They’ll give you the info you’re looking for. Refresh it when you want the updated data. @nytimes and @WSJ are pretty quick in their updates. @538politics is great too. Unlike TV, you get to control what you consume. #SelfCare
3) Democrats more likely to believe in COVID, so more likely to vote via absentee ballot. Only 28% of PA absentee ballots have been counted/ 78% of PA’s absentee ballots so far are blue. Only 16% of Michigan’s absentee counted/ 68% of MI’s absentees so far are blue. #RedMirage

Jumping from the #LEADatStanfordMed Diversity and Inclusion Forum to the @StanfordWellMD Physician #Wellness Forum... Today, we'll be doing a journal club!

#doctorsarehumanstoo #whatdoctorslooklike
On the first paper:
820 physicians and 57 leaders took the survey
As an aside, there are more men than women in #leadership positions in this study.

Burnout score, professional fulfillment score, self valuation score among leaders, and their wellness scores.

Role model effect. No associations between leaders' scores of burnout, professional fulfillment and self-valuation with the same outcomes for those who they supervised.

Sleep impairment, however, shows an association.

Revel Revel promotes "regular" people"s life stories. We all have amazing stories to share. Not just famous people.
The stories typically have coincidence, chance, fate, god, serendipity, the universe, whatever you call it at play in them.

Ich wuchs in einem #sexpositiv​en Elternhaus auf, d. h. „#Sex“ wurde thematisiert, aber nur als heterosexueller Koitus, nie und nimmer #Selbstbefriedigung. Dennoch hatte ich als junge Frau Glück, dass meine Mutter eine Ausgabe des #HiteReport besaß, der mich die Basics lehrte. 1️⃣
Anfang Zwanzig, mit ein paar Jahren Beziehungserfahrung, fragte ich mich, warum #Sex für meinen Freund so viel erfüllender schien als für mich. Ich merkte, dass er mich nicht befriedigen konnte, weil ich selbst nicht wusste, wie frau „es sich macht“. 2️⃣
#Selbstbefriedigung, geschweige denn #SelfCare oder #Selbstliebe, war nicht Gegenstand des schulischen #Aufklärungsunterricht​s. Und in meinem kleinstädtischen, katholisch geprägten Freundeskreis wurde niemals darüber gesprochen. 3️⃣

1/3 Running.

This morning was grey, windy and I was still shaking off my vivid dream, where I was upset and angry at people not getting the depth of pain of not being able to have children. But I got out and stayed out, Image
2/3 in part as my wife is doing the couch to 5k, and in part as I didn't want to give up on myself and lose another day to loss. I ended up out for 6 miles. It felt good.

I know I am in a different place with my childless grief as I did something to help with my processing,
3/3 rather than running from it. That felt even better than the run.

Eyala's third season kicks off today! I'm so excited to share this interview with Kenyan human rights lawyer Kavinya Makau aka @kaviemakau, a #feminist who preaches the Lorde's word and practices it too! Don't miss this great conversation. #EyalaTalk
"I’ve always been clear that my view as a #feminist and a human rights defender is that there is no hierarchy of rights." @kaviemakau defines #feminism for herself and explains how she goes about embodying her values in her daily life. #EyalaTalk
I met @kaviemakau 10 years ago as a young professional with a huge task to handle. She gave me great advice then about #selfcare and #feminism. Here, she shares more useful tips, incl. around what I call #feminist impostor's syndrome. Read it! #Eyalatalk

I guess I want to write something here about #selfcare for the #HigherEd and #AcademicChatter and #FacultySuccess crews and whoever else is reading.
1- I feel like my #1 priority in my work right now is to encourage people to take care of themselves, and then to take care of each other. If you want to call that self-care, that's cool, but I know that term is hard for many of us.
2- Our culture/system takes concepts like self-care and turns them into profit, and in order to do that, they have to sell us on the fact that we're doing something wrong or missing something that others have, which makes us feel bad, which is not self-care, right?

Long post alert: Inspired by @SkyyhookRadio sharing her cancer diagnosis & journey allow me to share what's been going on with me. Back in July I came down w/ some symptoms I thought might be #covid19 but weren't, thank God. Around the same time
I took on some more responsibilities at work & started feeling weird adrenaline rushes in my body. It got so bad I thought I was having a heart attack one night. The paramedics who showed up checked me out fully & gently suggested I may be having a panic attack.
I had NEVER had issues with anxiety before so I was surprised. But at the time I was still awaiting my #coronavirus test results so figured, sure, I'm anxious. Makes sense. I was being startled awake at night after vivid dreams, heart racing and freaked out.
