If you haven’t checked out the virtual collage website Pinterest, you may want to set aside a few hours (!) and do so. While it is addictive and could potentially be a time suck if you’re not careful, it’s a fun way to express creativity if your personal black bag of stress management tools includes collaging and dreamboards, like mine does.
In honor of Women in Medicine Month (September), the AMA Women Physician’s Coalition has started a weekly photo collage series dedicated to related themes… and this week’s inspiration was Work-Life Balance! Speaking of, the AMA Wellness site has great resources for not only patients but also physicians. Check out their Physician Health webpage, which also links to their Healthier Life Steps Toolkit and e-letter.
Anyway, check out yours truly on the Balancing Work and Life Pinboard, amongst other inspiring lady MD’s discussing how they practice balance while practicing medicine. (HINT: I’m the one in the rock climbing picture!)
