A5: so much here, but for starters: Discuss stress points with your team and address recurring themes. Also do a self-audit. What are your stressors at home as well as work. How can you reduce those and introduce some .

Yes! It’s all about recognising the stresses and capacity of staff across the board. There are times reception gets the thin and of the wedge for sure, and I’ve nipped our to help them/ calm clients etc.

A4: Organzied front of house, who recognise you’re a living human with limited capacity. Colleagues and nurses who step in to help. Makes ALL the difference! Also moving to longer consults/ having PROTECTED catch up time

I met a Lego developer - they actually employ people to feel bricks from 1960 and today to ensure they are identical. Lego quality control. What a job! (Not very stressful I’m guessing!)

So inportant to de-stress as a student. For me, I watched an hour of mindless TV each evening with my housemates (Big Brother!). Was perfect for that age and stage of life. If more time, I’d exercise, but I wouldn’t feel guilty if I didn’t have time or energy!

Q2: 10min consults not being long enough to do a decent job. Ops overrunning into lunch/consult time. Results and admin building up...

I have experienced everything from alopecia and skin breakouts from chronic stress, to irritability and short temper with acute stress. I can also get GI signs and remember swigging zantac and antepsin during my internship!

Individuals can express of a variety of signs such as physical (racing heart), emotional(overwhelm) or behavioural changes (quicker to anger). It’s helpful to recognise these early so you can intervene to relief them before they spiral which ones do you see in yourself?

Too few men feel able to talk to friends and family at times when they are feeling stressed. This must change.

If you’re feeling stressed, speak to your colleagues & ask for help. Reducing your to-do list & dividing your workload into smaller, more achievable goals can help you achieve much more in the long run & help prevent you burning out.

I'll be taking part in this, discussing questions and concerns around returning to work after an extended break; parental leave / travel / sabbatical / PhD... getting back on the horse can be daunting, but it needn't be! Join in and find out how.

2 ways to minimise the negative effects of perfectionist traits that work for me 1) minimise negative rumination 2) think about marginal gains rather than huge changes in habit. This is a great article & will resonate with many professionals
