All of the above. Take time off from work on purpose as well. Speak up if the work is too extreme, take your breaks at work and eat lunch

The little things! Making your bed in the morning, opening the shades, brushing your teeth, skincare routine, journaling, and most importantly - boundaries!!!!

Work less and for yourself if you can. Hard boundaries with work and saying no. Agencies will burn you out for their own gain, many group practices too.

I agree. Especially larger agencies and treatment centers. I actually had an owner of a facility tell me “we don’t pay you to have boundaries.” Took a pay cut and left as soon as I could.

I hear you! It’s a struggle. Boundaries are huge.

What completes you?

New to FishBowl but hoping to get some advice/make some connections on here. I have an MHA and 6 YOE post grad-school in hospital operations and leadership. I'm currently a Service Line Director looking to make a transition away from hospital operations into consulting/strategy/etc.

I’ve applied to a number of positions at Optum/PwC/CVS etc but can’t seem to get an interview. I’m revamping my resume but are there other things I can be doing to at least get an initial interview? Any advice?

Hi all! Newly diagnosed last month. Started Adderall and was only able to fill one 2 week prescription before it became impossible to get I my area of Tampa, FL. Dr switched me to Ritalin but I don't have much of a benefit from it at all compared to Adderall.

Pharmacies are saying it may be another couple of months before they expect adderall to be back. Anyone else having this issue? Was on Adderall 10mg twice daily. Now on Ritalin 10mg twice daily. I just don't have the same level of focus!
