Doing well

You’re doing well today, and that’s wonderful. Whatever you are doing to manage your stress and handle what life throws at you is working. Now might be the time to reach out and help someone who might not be doing as well as you. And it’s always good to remember that everyone experiences ups and downs, so be sure to enjoy the ups when they happen.

WHAT TO DO NOW: When you are doing well, do a little inventory and figure out what you have been doing to get you here, and keep it up. To maintain your state of mind, here are some more actions to take:

  • Continue to practice stress management skills
  • Take time to help others.
  • Engage in an enjoyable activity.

Physician / Scientist Engagement Groups

Collegiality and creating connections with one's peers are critical components of physician satisfaction and well-being. Increased clinical and administrative demands in healthcare can make creating these connections more challenging. Physician / Scientist Engagement Groups are designed to cultivate these vital connections by encouraging colleagues to gather for a complimentary meal and conversation around their physician experience. 

For questions and more information on how to sign up for this program, please contact PEGs@mayo.edu. If you would like to start your own Physician Engagement Group, please visit the intranet site to get started.
