Staying Centred and Preventing Burnout
I’ve been lucky to be placed with some of my classmates during clinical rotations. . I’ll be in Thunder Bay for five months and have many classmates coming through Thunder Bay during that time. I’m also lucky to have family and friends from coast to coast—I have family and friends in both Alberta and Nova Scotia, providing more options for travel during breaks.
“I’ve already thought about ‘What am I going to do for Christmas break? Am I flying back to Calgary or am I flying to Nova Scotia? Or am I staying in Ontario and hanging out with one of my classmates’ family for Christmas? I’ve also thought about March break as well, what am I going to do? Am I going to go on any vacations?
I’ve been thinking a lot about this and it’s an extra step that I feel [many of my classmates] don’t have to think about.”
