You might have heard…
I was talking to some younger colleagues recently and they were asking me for some advice on how to choose their future specialty. You can certainly find a huge number of detailed and comprehensive articles/posts, which serve as a great guide. However, I decided to make this short post and give some advice from my personal experience, to whoever is interested.
Just a quick update for all of who might be wondering why I’ve not been posting the past weeks and what’s going on~
I’m back with a new post. This week, I’m going to share with you the 5 most enjoyable books that I’ve used in Med school! These are the books I was always happy to study from, due to their easy-going, friendly style.
Just a quick note: I’ve linked each title to the book’s page on Amazon. However, many of these books have a newer edition available, so if you are interested in buying them, don’t forget to look for the newest version first.
As some of you may know, I’ve recently turned 28. Yay! It’s difficult to believe it, actually. Have I changed since then? Definitely yes. Am I the exactly the way I thought I would be, when I turned 28? Certainly not!
*And I absolutely love it.*
So what if I could go back, just for 5 minutes and give some advice to my younger self?
Today, I wanted to talk about a very important topic: how little, healthy habits make a healthy life, especially when you are in Med school. If you are one of these Med students who can manage to be super effective with their studies, while hitting the gym daily and sleeping 8 hours every night, then this post is probably not for you.
This post is for all of you who have to spend endless hours sitting and studying, before you realize that your back hurts. And then you realize that you didn’t eat healthily, didn’t drink more than 1 glass of water the whole day and -obviously- didn’t have time to stand up and walk around a bit -let alone work out.
I may not be the wisest person in town, but these past 5 years in Med school I have been challenged physically and emotionally enough, in order to make some golden rules of survival. So I thought, why not share them with others, on my Blog?
We are all together in the boat called “Med school”, and by sharing our wisdom, we can help each other face all kinds of difficult situations. Besides, when you see that others go through the same things as you do, you get this very warm and nice feeling that you are not alone in this.
Here I go!
As you may know from my Instagram/Facebook page (or by personally knowing me, let’s not forget that:p), I have recently finished my 5th year as a Medical student. Only one more year is left! It’s amazing how fast time passes by. So, I thought, why not write 5 lessons that I have learned (the hard way), during the past 5 years of my life, as a Med student? This can serve as an inspiration to you, but also to me -every time I neglect one of these points, I can come back here, read what I wrote and start all over again.
Here we go!
