Joy of Medicine-on Call Episode 0

Dr. Misquitta: “What is a step listeners can take in the next 24 hours to find joy?”

Dr. Walker: “Do something nice for a stranger. I get so much joy when I buy a drink for the person behind me in line at Starbucks. It makes me happy that I could have potentially made someone’s day.”

Angela: “Compliment yourself! Sometimes we criticize ourselves a lot, so think of something that you did that was incredible, something that you succeeded at and pay yourself a compliment.”

Episode 0 features local physician Vanessa Walker, DO, and Angela Trapp, Joy of Medicine Resiliency Provider. Dr. Walker and Angela discuss how they find joy in their life such as through taking time for oneself and participating in the El Dorado Hills Physician Peer Group.
