Imagine waking up each day brimming with energy. We no longer feel a burden, but are able to enjoy a lightness in our mind and body. We have the emotional and physical reserves to face whatever comes today. We feel optimistic about what we can accomplish not only in the next 6 months, but in the next 6, 16, and 36 years. How do we cultivate the energy to live our dreams?

As physicians, we demand a lot out of our bodies, whether it’s taking 30-hour call shifts, seeing a full day of patients back-to-back without a food or bathroom break, or even intensely working out for the sake of losing 10 lbs. We don’t often think about giving back to our bodies.

How can we develop a loving relationship with our bodies? Do we believe in the possibility of achieving an authentic body?

This is the path to optimal health:

💪 Know our “why” and honor it.

💪 Stop blaming our bodies for not being enough.

💪 Decide that our health is non-negotiable.

💪 Commit to being kind to our bodies.

💪 Be curious and build awareness of our bodies.

💪 Honor our unique body types.

💪 Acknowledge our emotions and sit with them.

💪 Fall in love with the journey, rather than obsessing over the result.

This was an absolutely phenomenal conversation with Dr. Ali Novitsky, a certified life coach and neonatologist, who is the Founder and CEO of Life Coaching for Women Physicians.
