Beyond The Stethoscope

May 26, 2020

In this episode, I talk with Tabitha Bartley on how to maintain a resilient mindset during challenging times. 

Favorite quotes of the episode: “Nobody can tell you what you can or can’t do, that’s up to you.”

Key to a resilient mindset? “Allowing yourself to feel all of the emotions. You don’t need to ignore them, but we don’t need to dwell on them either.”

“I love organized chaos and thrive on stress, but it’s important to know your limits and ask for support when you need it.”
