Back to Clinic!
After a full TWO WEEKS OFF (my last day of work was Tuesday December 20 – so I truly had 14 days!) — I feel ready to head back to work! I am not really looking forward to seeing the state of my inbox (my guess is that there will be >20 Patient Advice Requests, >10 Staff Messages, >30 Patients with multiple lab results, and many refills.
BUT, I am looking forward to catching up with staff, seeing patients, and even (eventually) getting my EPIC inbox back to zero. I do plan on working a little later today but probably need to also allow for some catchup time on Friday afternoon when I have some admin time.
(What will I not be doing? Clinical work on my non-work days (ie, Tuesdays + Thursdays, or paid leave days). I want to continue to set hard boundaries around that. CLEAR being my word of the year and all!)
Screen Time Widget
I learned something from Kae yesterday! I am doubling down on my non-scrolling goals and was amazed to find out that you can actually add Screen Time as a widget on your phone’s home screen. Simply click to customize the screens, “add widgets” and pick Screen Time! I don’t know how long it’s been available, but I love it. Thank you Kae!
My goal is always under 100 minutes (1 hr + 40 min). Some checking of WhatsApp, texts, podcasts, Duolingo, etc makes this the lowest reasonable daily cutoff. Plus obviously my daily Wordle (thus far I’ve only gotten “3” in 2023. This will probably end soon though!).
I decided to go back on Strava after many years off. It has been motivating to see some of my friends and relatives KILLING IT in their workouts. Also Josh and I like to give each other thumbs up (ha). I am hoping that 2023 is going to be a big training year — as I’ve mentioned, I’d like to set “40s PRs” in multiple distances and maybe even approach some of my times of the past.
Maybe my super shoes (on their way to me) will help . . .
You can ‘follow’ me if you’d like by searching for my name; probably the only Sarah Hart-Unger there (the beauty of a hyphenate!). I’m also theshubox on Peloton though prepared to see just a bunch of strength workouts in my feed there!
