Micro-Practices for Burnout Prevention & Wellness for Physicians

This workshop will invite you to “try-on” specific micro-practices for navigating stress and cultivating wellness. Micro-practices take only seconds to minutes to implement. They include cognitive and somatic practices that aid self-regulation. By self-soothing, we naturally cultivate more presence and more choice in our behavior.
During this highly experiential workshop, you will hear, see, smell, taste, and feel a variety of micro-practices and develop a plan for applying them. Bring a healthy snack or beverage, and your favorite wellness strategy to share.
This is an interactive workshop that will include small group breakouts.

Specific Objectives

  • Learn 3 breath practices that only take seconds to minutes to apply
  • Try 3 body-based practices for greater well-being
  • Experience 3 cognitive practices that help calm mental chatter
