medestheticsmagazine.com | MARCH 2014 67 COMBATING BURNOUT of Minnesota to work at," Dr. Crutchfi eld says. "So we've been recognized for providing our employees with an ex- emplary work experience, which reduces stress on them, creates better retention, and is just better for everyone." Dr. Tanzi also organizes regular events for her entire staff. "It can be anything from going to an overnight retreat to something as fun and zany as going to a bowling alley," she says. TREATING BURNOUT Burnout is a highly unpleasant, negative state, but it is not permanent. "The good news is that burnout isn't a termi- nal illness," writes Sherrie Carter in High Octane Women. She notes that you are still the same person as before burnout hit; the difference is that your drive and enthusi- asm have become buried under piles of stress. Thus, the key to treating burnout is making signifi cant and immediate changes in your lifestyle. Scale Back Your Schedule. "The fi rst thing I would recommend before throwing in the towel would be to think out the schedule and allow more time between patients," says Dr. Tanzi. "It takes the pressure off the physician from running from room to room; maybe allows them to talk to patients a little bit more." Take Extended Time Off. Taking time off from work, anywhere from a few days to two weeks, can help physi- cians step back and get a clearer view of what is causing their dissatisfaction. "During the time off, you can't do any work," writes Carter. "You can't take any work-related calls or respond to any work-related emails or texts. If your family is a source of stress, try to get away from them for the week- end. Basically, your job is to remove as many sources of stress from your life as possible and infuse as many stress- reducing elements (mostly in the form of rest) into your life for two and a half days." She advises stressed profes- sionals to avoid activities that are physically and emotionally draining, get eight hours of sleep every night and eat three healthy meals a day. Talk to a Professional. "Sometimes when you're in a deep rut, you can't see the forest from the trees," says Dr. Crutchfi eld, who sought professional help during some hardship in medical school. "I would never hesitate to talk to a counselor or psychologist or psychiatrist. If you're feeling down and out or pressured, talk to somebody—it will make a huge difference. Have no fear."
