Healthcare burnout is more prevalent than ever. As a working physician and certified life coach, host Deanna Larson helps healthcare professionals beat burnout and find fulfillment. She understands the struggles physicians face every day. Using evidence-based solutions and actionable tactics she teaches you how to create the life you deserve. The patient can no longer come first. Physicians need to care for themselves first in order to take the best care of patients.
<p>Today I talk about saying no. I really believe this is one of the most important skills that every physician needs to learn to manage their burnout. I talk about some of the reasons it is so hard to say no and give you so easy examples to use when you are stumbling for words. So often we say no because of the fear we have about what the requester is going to think or feel. And most importantly, I remind you that we don't know what they are going to think and there is no way to control it anyway.</p> <p>(02:45) Is it wrong to say no?</p> <p>(03:02) Saying no is one of the most important skills</p> <p>(03:18) Why is saying no so hard?</p> <p>(04:03) Studies</p> <p>(04:26) Patterns may begin in childhood</p> <p>(05:10) People-pleasing</p> <p>(06:16) The “pay-back-trap”</p> <p>(07:24) NO should be your default answer</p> <p>(07:44) Benefits of Saying NO</p> <p>(08:26) Be Clear</p> <p>(09:18) Show Gratitude</p> <p>(09:38) Give an explanation or NOT</p> <p>(11:10) Offer an alternative</p> <p>(13:15) Decide to say NO in advance</p> <p>Find more about this episode, including show notes and resources, at <a href="https://www.deannalarsonmd.com/pod-post-ep-2-why-i-eat-ice-cream-when-feeling-anxious-or-sad-copy-1" target="_blank" rel="noopener">DeannaLarsonMD.com</a></p> <p>A <a href="http://hurrdatmedia.com/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Hurrdat Media Production</a>.
