Vacation Time

One thing I’ve mastered during residency is the timing of vacation and making the most of those few days of freedom.  Four months without vacation is far too long, one month intervals is too soon, but a vacation every 2.5 months comes out to be just right.  I’m at the point of yearning for some much-deserved time off, which I plan to spend soaking up sun to boost my Vitamin D and eating/shopping/partying in one of my favorite cities.  My key to surviving residency incorporates a balance of combining work, relaxation, and fun, because the former can easily dominate over time, resulting in high anxiety, struggles to get up in the morning, a shorter temper, less sleep, and less people wanting to be around me.
