Dynamic Guide - How to Recharge Your Mind With A Refreshing Recreational Activity!
Let's face it! The majority of our time is either spent sleeping or working. The demands of our employers and our workspace means that we are all highly stressed. We face one hundred and one problems that demand our fullest attention during the day at our workplace and when we return home, we face domestic difficulties that need urgent resolution.
As a result, we keep on postponing a much needed vacation. Our present problems need urgent resolution. We are up to our neck and to our nose with things that we need to work on, to solve, to look into.
So what are we going to do?
Perhaps, we have been so deeply engrossed in the matters at hand that we have forgotten that there are activities that we can indulge in, just for a short weekend, or a few hours that can refresh our minds and our bodies, so that we can be recharged, and get rid of the inbuilt stress to face another week, another month and another year.
Consider that we can just pack some necessary light tools and be away for a short hike to the country-side or the mountains nearby. A one day hike is always possible, and brings you back to nature, and close to the tranquility of the country or the hills or fields and meadows.
Or have you considered some fishing in that creek or that nearby lake? Feel the rush of the wind, the calmness of the environment and the thrill of that fight between man and fish as you reel in your catch! Bask in the glory and self satisfaction as you observe your bounty after a day of fishing and capture the moment with some photographs for sweet memories.
Or just getting onto a cruise down the river or lake on a boat is a good activity to let loose, and refresh from the cares and worries of the day. Water skiing is a good choice for you to really enjoy it all!
And if you are game for some real physical contact, you can join some physical sports that can allow for a good degree of running and physical exertion. Consider the sports of Lacrosse! It is said you are not in the game unless you are physically bruised!
Even in winter, there is no excuse! You can be away for some snow skiing- a change of environment, some time to relax and you will feel much refreshed when you return.
We are humans, we are not machines. Man is built with emotions, with feelings and with physical bodies that need to recharge, and to rebound back with vigor. Imagine, you can be hiking, water skiing, boating, fishing, snow skiing and in a game of lacrosse. All it needs it just some planning and a desire to *really* take action. Once you tried it out once, you will find how refreshing it is, and you will want to do it again!

Canadian Physicians on Slippery Slope of Burnout
In a recent CMA survey of 2251 physicians, over 45% were found to be in an advanced state of burnout. If this reflects the seriousness of the problem in the general population of physicians in Canada, then it can safely be said that the healthcare system is at serious risk of collapse. In this article we outline our understanding of the reasons for this situation and propose a new approach to helping empower physicians. Additionally, we believe our model will empower their patients thereby reducing the burden on the healthcare system.
