About the Book

Medical doctors take so much time taking care of their patients that they often neglect their own bodies and minds. Marsha W. Snyder, M.D., seeks to change that in this guidebook to living a life filled with positivity, satisfaction, and proper exercise. She pays particular attention to the root of the problem: the demands that are placed on future medical professionals in the first year of medical school. With this book, you’ll learn how to: • balance the demands of the workplace, home, and your body; • develop resilience so you can engage in proper self-care and avoid burnout, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and other negative outcomes. • cultivate more positive emotions inside and outside the workplace; • engage in positive fitness, movement, and breathing techniques to boost overall health. Increasing positive health in doctors and health care personnel will improve employee and patient satisfaction, decrease the cost of care, reduce employee sick days, and lessen employee turnover. Whether you’re a medical student, medical educator, administrator or an active practitioner, you’ll live a longer and happier life by following the advice in Positive Health: Flourishing Lives, Well-Being in Doctors.
