Are you feeling worried and uncertain, waiting for the worst to happen and on high alert for your next course of action? This is what doctors experience daily during most of their training. The key difference is doctors choose unexpected events and all of the challenges that come with it. You didn't choose to experience a pandemic, or three months of quarantine or a disruption in your livelihood. And no one chooses to be physically ill or emotionally assaulted by societal unrest.
When I entered medical school, I knew it would be one of the most enduring challenges of my life. Most doctors experience human suffering in volumes that others can't imagine. But seemingly, many health professionals thrive through the experience remaining nearly normal. I learned a special tool that helped save my sanity when all the circumstances seemed overwhelming. I learned to meditate. I know … everyone makes it sound so easy. Sit quietly and wait for the bliss to engulf you. Yeah, right. Is there another way?...
Finding that place of calm in the middle of chaos does not easily happen without effort. It's the practice of meditation, over and over again, that trains the body to sit still and the mind to relax. The more you experience inner calm the better you become at problem solving, sustaining your energy and having greater patience with yourself and others. By practicing meditation, you strengthen your muscle for resilience, compassion, and peace. It's just like exercise. You can’t expect to have strong abs by doing only one sit-up.
If you've tried to meditate and simply can't find peace in the stillness, I recommend taking a nap. It's the next best way to restore and energize your mind. Just before falling asleep your mind moves through a meditative state. If you learn to linger there without falling asleep, you're meditating. And there’s no forced effort, judgment or expectation as to whether you're doing it right.
The day I was accepted into medical school I immediately searched for a trainer in Transcendental Meditation, and since that time I've never stopped meditating. I've also used the Brain Sync Method for more than 10 years. It's the perfect energizer in the middle of your day. Their proven system of using sound waves to reprogram your nervous system for deeper relaxation has made my life and the lives of many, more successful.
