As a physician there isn’t a post on my IG, Twitter, or FB feed, text message, or call that doesn’t somehow start with COVID. It’s A LOT! 😫.
• As a Type A Leo, my brain works with lists, goals, having a definite answer, timeline, plan, and…..yeah, control. .
•In this situation, that has gone out of the window! I’ve had to find other things to control, the only thing I can control… myself and my thoughts. .
• So I rarely watch television or American COVID news coverage, because let’s be honest that was inducing a lot of anger and even more uncertainty. .
• I keep up with important updates, like my own lockdown extension in Madrid, and my friends send actual scientific data….because facts are important. .
• This has taken some reflection and gratitude work in spite of the uncertainty, but also realizing it’s also ok to not be positive all day everyday either. .
⭐️So I want to encourage others to give yourself a break as well! .
☑️I now have more time to share data and tips from clinic here! .
⏰ This will take some getting used to as I’m accustomed to following the cues of in-person encounters whether it’s that ahh-ha 🤔 moment in clinic or head nods and giggles 😂 from an audience. .
📒So follow along for some breaks in COVID talk, comment, share, repost, engage ….because we have a little time. .
