As a recent PA school grad, I am so thankful to have the ability to have a few months off before I start my job in Emergency Medicine. My goal is to take the summer to unwind and de-stress after a chaotic two years, so I was thrilled when MEDELITA announced their new summer campaign – #SelfCareSummer.
I think its so easy to get caught up in the stress of your job/school – no matter what kind of role you have in medicine – and that sometimes we forget how important it is to take care of ourself! There’s this stigma that you need to be the best, and often times doing that means going the extra mile even at the expense of yourself.
You can read more of my thoughts about self care, and some ways I recommend taking care of yourself over at MEDELITA’S BLOG. And be sure to follow along on their Instagram throughout the summer to see more tips on self-care! If you have tips yourself, or are trying out something new, be sure to tag @Medelita_gram on Instagram and use #SelfCareSummer so we can see what you do to take care of yourself as well.
