Ever feel completely overwhelmed by the emotions you feel while you’re at work or around other people? Do difficult situations touch you on a deeper level than they appear to with others in your sphere? Then lady, you might be an empath. Listen in as Dr. Sheetal Ajmani and I chat about the realizations we had in our careers and how we’ve learned to better cope.
What is an empath? Per Merriam-Webster, an empath is “one who experiences the emotions of others.” Sound familiar? So many female physicians are in fact empaths and they just don't realize it, thinking that they’re simply being “emotional.”
But it goes so much deeper than that…
Empaths take on the emotions of those around them, which means if you’re a doctor working in pediatric urgent care, you likely feel drained after each and every shift. Sheetal did and once she realized what was going on, she knew exactly how to address it.
Sheetal believes in the power of allopathic remedies combined with homeopathic regimens and has worked hard to merge her work in Ayurvedic healing with medicine. Listen as she shares an exercise we can all use to build up our own bubble shields and why your empathy is a superpower AND kryptonite.
