If you practice medicine, chances are good that you experience a fair amount of stress in your daily life. Between seeing patients, managing staff, and keeping up with paperwork, it's easy to let stress get the best of you. But when you're feeling stressed, it can be difficult to provide quality care to your patients.
That's why it's important to find ways to effectively reduce stress in your practice. Here are four tips to help you do just that:
1. Schedule regular breaks throughout the day.
It can be tempting to try to power through your workday without taking a break, but this will only make you more stressed in the long run. Make sure to schedule regular breaks so you can take a few minutes to yourself to relax and rejuvenate.
2. Integrate technology into your practice
