Melancholia: Depression on Film

My interest is piqued. I have never felt the symptoms but have come to know many with the diagnosis. One of the hardest things to comprehend is to imagine life through their filtered lens. Perhaps this movie will shed some light on this and inspire more compassion to the illness.

Personal Trainer or Preventative Health Coach? – LeON Health – Medium

I've come across many healthcare professionals in my career thus far but I never thought I'd have a continuous collaboration and friendship with a Personal Trainer (as a colleague...he's not training me.. but I need it). Bryan Smith is a truly an expert in his field. We recently had a chat on the potential role of personal trainers in our populations health and wellness. I agree with him, that I think there is real opportunity here.

Why Doctors Are Burned Out by Busywork

This does hit home for me. As each year advances, I find myself having to deal with more and more paperwork and documentation while not being provided the time to complete it. Normally this would take time away from direct patient contact (and ::gasp:: eye contact), so as a bit of a small rebellion I refuse to type an any electronic device in front of a patient and engage them as much as I can. I find my patient-encounters being much more pleasant, however that often means I am stuck with mountains of documentation to be completed at the end of the day. Waiting for one of us to figure out the healthy balance.
