Wellness requires a proactive approach to balance high demands with sufficient renewal while supporting resiliency, performance & enthusiasm.
Mental exhaustion is the underlying foundation that fosters the development of burnout. Early symptoms are often ignored by physicians who set excessively high standards of performance for themselves. The systems and habits that foment exhaustion may take a long time to change but physicians can take steps immediately to counter the effects.
The APW program is a practical and empowering approach that provides unique, high yield tools that go far beyond relaxation to rest and renew the mind. Regular practice restores vitality, increases energy, resiliency, and performance and improves overall health and well-being. The program is comprehensive yet can be learned in one weekend and physicians see results immediately.
