Burnout Prevention 😫
By Breean Beers, PA-C, @unfilteredbeers
Are you feeling tired, overworked, and need some time away + 🍻 ?
I love giving each day to my patients, but sometimes I feel like I forget to give to myself, especially during the week. Here are some of my personal goals to help prevent burnout:
🌾 Don’t stay at work more than 30 minutes after my last patient - I would rather be snuggled up with my husband + puppy child on the couch doing notes, than at my desk where I already spent 10 hours.
🌾 Don’t always be the “yes man” - I would ALWAYS take the walk-in/extra patient (which is sometimes needed for emergent concerns), but it’s OK to say no - to be fair to you AND your already scheduled patients.
🌾Take some weekends to really put work FULLY away - No laptop, no calls, no charting. You deserve it.
