Welcome to our very first episode with a guest! We are starting our podcast with a mini-series on the personal resources, which are essential for performance and wellbeing: attention, energy and time. We firmly belief that learning to manage these resources well is key to a sustainable and enjoyable work life- but of course this is not always easy and so we are inviting guests who can share their own insights and experiences around resource management.
Our first guest is Steph Sorrell, European Veterinary Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine and RCVS Specialist in Feline Medicine. Steph has also completed the level 5 Diploma in Mental Health Awareness and Wellbeing and Mindfulness Champion training and is passionate about increasing the mental health in the veterinary profession.
Steph shares her own thoughts, insights and experiences about attention and attention control.
