  3. Thank you for the article. I have a question: how do you stave off the friends and family who want a “quick” consult after 10 pm at night? I’m getting tired of it as 1. I’m trying to rest and 2. I’m not getting paid.

  4. Practical , down to earth and doable advise. I have also found meditation a very valuable resource to incorporate in the daily routine. Thanks for the article.

    Generally a good way to cope with our ‘normal’ busy, often stressful lives, under normal circumstances as well. Thanks for the article.

  6. Thank you for this article. I find this very helpful and timely. May I have permission to put this in a newsletter at my work place?

  7. Thanks for this article. It enforces good habits, that we are all aware of but often place at the end of our endless list of things to do. Once in a while we need an articlelike this to refresh our priorities. Also, thanks for the links to resources.

  8. Hi Sharon- I struggle with this too. Sometimes I say something like, “this is a really complex situation and I want to make sure you (insert name of family or friend) get the best care. Can you please book a time at my office to discuss who might be the best person to support you through this?

    I find this helps sets the boundary – but also clarifies that I am their friend and not their doctor! Let me know what you think.

  9. Hi Margurite,

    Yes please share at your office – and thank you for asking!!

  10. Hey Dr. Russel,
    Thanks for a very practical, grounded article. I was getting tired of seeing that graphic that says I am “thriving” if I am not completely falling apart. It takes active work to stay above water these days.
