Dr. Devika Bhushan on living with mental illness & post-traumatic growth
Great insights and suggestions, thanks!
I live in Israel, and together with everyone else here am experiencing the mental and emotional chaos of the current tragic situation. As you suggested, it's so helpful to frame it around stress, and then look for a broad range of solutions: some in the body, others in the mind and heart.
Personally, I'm beginning a new running training program that includes elements of strengthening, equilibrium, and awareness.
I'm also trying to be helpful by focusing my own Substack newsletter, The Healthy Jew, on how to find health and wellness in the stress wartime, and appreciating the natural beauty and meaning of the Land of Israel.
Exquisitely validating for me personally. Thank you for your gift of authenticity and caring as a physician showing a way to heal and enjoy our careers and families.
