- Grief is the same as burnout in your brain
- We need to normalize burnout and develop tools to help ourselves
- Everyone is creative.
Dr. Lara Salyer, DO, IFMCP was shocked to discover herself struggling with burnout 15 years into her career as a rural family medicine physician. To alleviate this heartbreak of feeling trapped in a lackluster career, she started painting, drawing and running. This regular dose of neurochemical flow state resulted in improved wellbeing and decreased stress.
Fascinated by this, she began studying the effects of stress/cortisol on physiology, culminating in her decision to certify with the Institute for Functional Medicine. She resigned from her employed position and opened a holistic membership practice where she leverages technology to build cohesive wellness in her local community through innovative group medical visits, online health education, as well as traditional individual services.
She continued studying with the Flow Research Collective to learn how to coach flow acquisition and high flow leadership. She infuses this training into her keynotes and growing Catalyst™ Mentorship program where she helps colleagues design their own creative, efficient, and organized work/life masterpiece.
Dr. Lara speaks across the globe on her mission to teach 1 million health professionals how to tap into creative flow daily so they can reclaim autonomy, improve happiness, and eradicate burnout.
She authored her own memoir, Right Brain Rescue: One physician's journey from burnout to bliss reveals the creative muse in all of us, available on Amazon, and lives in Monroe, Wisconsin with her husband, their three children, a manic dog, and infinite piles of laundry.
