It's very important, however to remember that there is more to life than Medicine. There is a world out there with exciting things going on too.
 
What can you do to engage with life beyond Medicine? Follow these tips and discover there is a life beyond Medicine.
  1. Connect with your creativity

    You have to use a lot of logic and factual information when working as a doctor. Although there is the on-going discussion about left versus right brain thinking, you use mainly your 'left brain,' your logical side, to decide what to do for a patient.


    Creative activity uses your 'right brain', your creative side. Let go of logic, engage with creativity and notice what happens when you paint, draw, dance, play an instrument, take photos, sculpt or work with clay.


  2. Travel

    Open up new horizons by going to other parts of the planet. Maybe you've always wanted to visit the Amazon rainforest or Antarctica. So make the decision to find out what options there are and go there. See how other communities live their lives, notice how others enjoy themselves and learn about different ways of being in the world.


  3. Start a new hobby or re-open your interest in an old one

    When you get home after a busy day at the hospital get stuck into something completely different rather than flopping down in front of the TV. Whatever it might be you can find others who share your interest, whether it's playing darts, chess or bowls or collecting model train sets or knitting. You'll find specialist magazines and meetings of people with similar hobbies all over the country.


  4. Be more sociable

    If your social life is either non-existent or is only with other doctors, get out there and meet others who share one of your other interests or hobbies. Forget about medical matters for a few hours each week and find others who can encourage and motivate you to get involved in other activities. You'll make new non-medical friends too.


  5. Learn new skills

    Is there a skill you regret never having learnt during your younger years? Maybe you always wanted to learn another language or be able to type quickly so find out about local classes and sign up for whatever class fulfills that gap in your knowledge or skills.
