Learning to relax

 

Fam Pract Manag. 1999 Sep;06(8):13.

To the Editor:

I got a dog. I take her for a walk every afternoon, and I sit with her on the lawn in the early evenings just to relax. Through this, I am learning to feel love and respect for life again.

Also, I try to get away from the office as much as possible, since (mis)managed care is brutal and hurtful to my sensitive soul!


Editor's note: This letter was in response to the article in our June 1999 issue by John-Henry Pfifferling, PhD, and Kay Gilley, MS, “Putting ‘Life’ Back Into Your Professional Life.” The article asked, “What has helped you to recapture the joy of family practice?”
