A very common challenge amongst doctors who strive for a more balanced life is how to stop taking work home with them.
There are at least three ways work doesn’t stay in the hospital or clinic and ends up going home with you:
1. Taking physical documents, patient’s files and journals with you in order to catch up during the evening or weekend.
2. Taking thoughts with you so that you find it difficult to ‘switch off’ and continue thinking about a particular patient and whether or not you might have missed something or prescribed the right treatment.
3. Dealing with other people’s questions and expectations: they have a medical problem and think you are willing to give your opinion whatever the time is and wherever you may be.
What do you do to make a clear division between work and leisure time?
