Two weeks of night shifts = not good for my body. Life has been pretty narrow: hospital/eat/sleep… not much space for anything else. I do not feel healthy!
But there is some good news in all this — we’re learning a ton and get more and more of those “moments” (that deeply fulfilling and yet fleeting feeling of competency). Plus, intern year is more than halfway over (!).
Here are some things that have been keeping me sane the past few weeks:
Upping my vitamin C intake overnight:
Sipping green juice over coffee:
Working on my 2012 love list:
Getting to see the call room (it happened once!)
Middle of the night podcast meditation to destress:
Favorite midnight snack discovered so far:
6:30am! The cafeteria opens and the hospital starts to wake up… time for warm oatmeal:
Finally, my latest supplement investment/experiment – anyone have thoughts on these?
And of course, trying to do more yoga. Off to practice now.
