Episode #25 Five Ways to Focus on Personal Development



In This Episode Of The Public Health Epidemiology Conversations (PHEC) Podcast


We are all super busy people, juggling work, family, and other responsibilities. If you’re in graduate school, then that adds another layer of responsibility. Organizing your life in a way that accomplishes all of the tasks that are in front of you seems to be a never ending challenge. Some days we handle things well, get lots of things checked off of our to-do list, while other days are the exact opposite. We live and learn and keep moving forward, right?


In this PHEC Podcast episode, Dr. Huntley speaks to you briefly about the importance of personal development time. We cannot expect to meet the challenges that life hands to us every day if we don’t take care of ourselves. So, as difficult as it may seem, it is so important to find a way to integrate some personal development into your routine so that you can be strong enough to handle the rest of what needs to be done.
