About this Episode of SAGEClinician:Samantha Alvarez FNP on

On this episode of SAGEClinician Samantha and I talk about professional burnout and steps we can take to prevent and recover from it.

We also talk about travel, self care. Samantha talks about her year of heart cleansing and what it means.

She shares with us two exercises that can be done in just minutes per day to reduce your stress (and one of them you can do in the exam room with patients), and help you get back on track.

In addition to mindfulness and travel, Samantha discusses languages and discusses some easy ways to  learning various languages (she is multi-lingual). I should have known this when I took French in the 7th you'll be able to hear, I did not retain much!

And of course we talk about The Burnout Recovery Guide!
