As a medical professional in a private practice, your days are spent seeing patients, dictating notes, and handling administrative tasks, just to name a few. The amount of hats you have to wear on a daily basis can’t even fit in your closet. For many, this means that the time you spend at the office greatly encroaches on the time you spend outside of work, such as with family and friends. This is where Work-life balance comes in.
What is Work-Life Balance?
Work-life balance is a concept that supports the efforts of individuals to split their time and energy between work and the other important aspects of their lives such as:
- Community participation
- Personal growth
- Other personal activities.
In many cases, technology is to blame for the lack of work-life balance. Now, you are able to check patient labs from the kitchen table, update patient charts while lounging on the couch, and call in a patient prescription while out on the boat. Although there is much to be said about hard work, work-life balance is important in order to strengthen relationships with loved ones and for your own mental health.
