The new year brings a plethora of opportunities for you to redirect your professional or personal life. This is the perfect time to make resolutions and set the goals you wish to achieve this year.
Here are the top new year’s resolutions you might want to focus on this year:
New Year’s Resolution Tip #1: Work-Life Balance
As a doctor, you may often have to put your work ahead of your personal life. Over time, this can lead to you feeling burned out and unhappy. So, this year, you can make it your top priority to maintain a work-life balance and spend a reasonable amount of time with your family.
New Year’s Resolution Tip #2: Mental Health
Doctors spend their entire day diagnosing patients and saving lives, often finding it difficult to admit their illnesses – whether physical or mental. Research indicates up to a third of doctors experience some form of a work-induced mental health crisis at some point in time during their careers. This year you can start prioritising your mental health by exercising, meditating, taking breaks, and spending some time with yourself.
Remedium’s initiative Healing our Healers champions mental well-being support for the clinical workforce. It aims to ensure that the mental well-being of our doctors remains part of our national conversation and that doctors know that help is there for them when they require it.
New Year’s Resolution Tip #3: Get More Exposure
Get as much work experience as you possibly can! This will significantly impact your resume, and you will get a chance to learn so much. This year you can list various volunteering opportunities that will benefit you, read books written by healthcare professionals about their personal experiences, travel, and participate in conferences to add more value to your resume.
New Year’s Resolution Tip #4: Relocate to a New Country
One of the great things about being a doctor is that your skills are in demand worldwide. So, if you’ve always been keen on immersing yourself in a different culture, meeting new people or learning a new language, and gaining work experience in a foreign country to expand your opportunities, this should be your new year’s resolution.
Whatever your reasons, you need to be clear about why this is right for you and which country you wish to relocate to.
