How to Build Your Practice Around Self-Care

Busy General Practitioner and mentor Dr Peter Churn is an advocate for healthcare professionals topping up their own wellbeing reserves so they can provide better care.

Throughout the pandemic and beyond, as a healthcare professional you may have needed to adapt to new working conditions, telemedicine and increased caseloads. Balancing your own needs for physical stamina, mental and emotional wellbeing can be a challenge when there's a need and desire to help so many others, so how do you make sure you're in a good place too?

In this short video, General Practitioner and mentor Dr Peter Churn shares the self-care soothers that helped turn his busy practice into a haven of calm for patients and practitioners. Yoga on the beach, taking time to cuddle your dog, watching Netflix and remembering to eat are some of the takeaways.
