Self-Care is Not Selfish - Dr. Bern Melnyk, College of Nursing Dean at Ohio State University
With just 30 minutes of physical activity every day, says Dr. Bernadette Melnyk, or “Bern,” as she's known, 80% of chronic disease could be totally prevented. Unfortunately, though, most people will not make changes in their behavior unless they are in a crisis or have raised emotions. Join Dr. Melnyk on this episode of Raise the Line as she speaks with Dr. Rishi Desai about her work at Ohio State - and worldwide through the Fuld Institute for Evidence-based Practice - finding and implementing evidence-based solutions to wellness, including decreasing the high percentage of burnout, depression and suicide in clinicians. Tune in to hear why self-care is not selfish, and how focusing on kids and pets can help people better care for themselves. Plus, discover Bern's “magic formula” to get people to change.
