This weekend PaleoPathologist joined a bunch of other docs at a retreat to discuss nasty things like burnout, and good things like how to take better care of yourself. (We docs aren’t great about taking good care of ourselves.)
In particular we don’t sleep enough. Docs are famous for this and consider it a badge of honor to not sleep enough.
It’s not smart. We become less efficient. Here is a short video by a former Navy Seal (they also think sleep is for the weak) about sleep’s importance.
More to come…
