A couple weeks ago, I had a little chat with Mary Ella Wood, @modmedblog, about how she finds time to balance life while in medical school. Here's what she had to say! 👩🏻‍⚕️
"Now more than ever I am discovering the importance of balance.
•A big misconception is that you have to devote your whole life to medicine if you want to be a doctor. This is just not true. The schooling is definitely long (12+ years), but life isn’t put on pause while you are in school. There are definitely challenges with being a student (struggling to live off of student loans as you dive deeper into debt), but you can still find ways to do other things that you love.
•To me, the most stressful part of medicine is comparing yourself to others. There will always be someone who is smarter, studying longer hours, or in higher leadership positions than you. It makes you feel like you should be doing more than you already are. However, I have learned to take a step back and not compare myself to my classmates. Everyone’s circumstances are different and everyone has different goals. You certainly can make medicine your whole life if you want to, but you don’t have to.
•I make sure to take time every day to do something besides medicine. This can be blogging, going on a walk, dancing, or anything else that I enjoy. On top of that, I take a weekend off every once in a while to recharge and grow in other areas of my life outside of medicine. I have also learned that you have to say no sometimes. If you over-commit yourself then it makes it a lot harder to have time to do things you like outside of medicine.
•A lot of reflection on what you want out of life is really important. If you want to be a doctor and enjoy other things in life that you love, you certainly can. Making the time and not over-committing to medical duties is the key."
💕What do you do for balance in your life? 🤓What do you have planned for this holiday weekend?

Dialing it in... ☎️🎯
A little more testing on the new @firethreads #theskinny shooter. Must say that the release is unmatched. Perfect mix of that nylon snap and increased rubber feel to make shooting a breeze.

First record I ever bought. So you can imagine the thrill when The Skinny asked me to interview Fletch, and gave me the scope to write a large Depeche Mode career retrospective. Link in profile. #DepecheMode #TheSkinny #MusicHack
