At this point, you've probably heard about or seen many "holiday survival" guides. At myHCN, we don't believe in just surviving the holiday season, we believe in thriving throughout. In honor of wrapping up 2018, we bid the year adieu with a couple tips and reminders to own this holiday season with calmness, confidence, and care.

1. What we're qualified to do, isn't always what we're meant to do. Oftentimes, we get so caught up on our qualifications on paper…

Mindful with myHCN: Conquering Fear of the Unknown

All this talk about witches, ghosts, and ghouls has us getting into the spooky seasonal spirit. We don’t mean trick or treating in costumes (let’s all pretend we’re "too old for that”…) We’re talking about fear. Fear can finagle its way into many realms of our lives. Here we explore fear in the context of career-driven change and growth. 
 
 
 
Fear comes knocking on our doors at any number of points throughout our professional or…

Mindful with myHCN: Climbing Towards Concentration

Achieving effective single-tracked concentration is a difficult feat - often more so for some than others. As someone who belongs in the former group, I've taken it upon myself to become an archeologist, searching for the lost artifacts that comprise what it means to hone the skill of simple concentration. Admitting it's a common problem in an increasingly hyperactive world full of social media, advertisements left and right, and a never-ending stream of emails…

Mindful Navigation

We all get to that point in our professional or educational pathways where we hit a fork in the road -- or maybe even a comb in the road. Multiple different directions to go in. Difficult choices to make. Questions surrounding our potential options. Unlike most multiple choice exams, there often isn’t one of those finicky options available to us like “D: All of the above.” Decision-making in life is a little more complex than filling in bubbles on a scantron,…

Amidst all this reflection on the past and planning for the future, we tend to lose sight of one thing — the present.

You may have just gotten through finals, recently finished secondary applications for medical school, sent in your apps for graduate school, or completed…
