In a stressful world, it’s often difficult for many people to find work-life balance. For those who work in the caring professions – veterinary medicine, medicine, nursing, just to name a few – stress is often magnified because their lives revolve around the well-being of others. Avoiding burnout and depression can be especially challenging. Dr. Ron Del Moro, a licensed mental health counselor who works with UF faculty, staff and students as well as animal owners, will discuss how taking care of yourself mentally, physically and spiritually does not have to be a chore and how even seemingly small things can make a difference in day-to-day outlook and coping skills.
