Becoming a doctor means dealing with stress all day every day as you work to help better your patient’s lives. As you well know, it starts while you’re in school and typically just escalates as you start building out your life and practice. So what’s the best way to deal with stress and making sure that you don’t reach a place of burnout?

For Dr. Leslie Koenig stress relief equals being mindful of her energy and her brain space and meditating to stay in a place of flow.

She didn’t always think that meditation was going to be the key for her. In fact for many years she was extremely skeptical of the practice. But as her stressors increased she found herself looking for a quiet space to just breathe and the meditation techniques that she learned helped move her through.

Listen as she shares her experience being one of the first physicians in her area exposed to Covid and why it was the catalyst for her creating her Stress Relief Survival Guide. This was an amazing conversation with a fantastic physician and person and if you’ve been feeling the cold claws of stress, you won’t want to miss it.
