Healthcare Challenge 2018!!

We got a challenge on our hands!! Are you in for the 5 day healthcare challenge starting Monday?! Show us you’re participating on Instagram that you’re in by using the #HealthcareChallenge2018 in your Insta-stories and your posts!

What is the Challenge?

As healthcare professionals, we are susceptible to burnout. The consequences of dealing with burnout can impact us physically, mentally, and professionally. Burnout occurs gradually overtime and not overnight- so it’s our responsibility to be proactive practitioners and bash the burnout!

This challenge has a different theme each day about things you can do in and out of work for burnout prevention. I will go live either by myself or share the screen with another healthcare professional each of the five days. Here’s the loose schedule (may change!) of the scheduled lives and topics:

  1. Scary stats and facts
  2. Coping strategies
  3. Physical and mental energy
  4. Changes in workplace
  5. SURPRISE!

If you’re not already, follow me @joy.energy.time on Instagram and follow along the challenge!

What does it mean to participate?

Use the #HealthcareChallenge2018 to promote awareness of the challenge and get your friends to join too! You can make a post using the # and share your personal story with burnout. If you haven’t been been burnt out but you’re in healthcare, use the # to share your biggest stressors that you’ve dealt with at work.

It’s important that if you post your story that you include something you did to overcome that challenge. If you’re still in it and haven’t quite overcome it yet, that’s totally OK! Remember that this is a journey. Just as burnout does not occur overnight, the solution and strategies to address it don’t just happen overnight either.

People in social media want to see REAL over perfect. Share your true story! Your vulnerability may help you to move forward in this imperfect journey!

Can’t wait for the challenge- see you on IG!

Man Carries His Wife’s Urn During Eagles Parade: ‘I Had to Make Sure She Was Here For This’

FLY EAGLES FLY. In case you havn’t heard, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl this month for the first time in franchise history. This guy brought his wifes ashes to the parade because she was  a die hard fan and would have wanted to be there. Shut up I’m not crying, you’re crying.

The Seabin Will Start Cleaning Australian Waterways in March – Futurism

Founded by sufers, Australian company Seabin Project has created a low energy, 24/7 floating ocean trash cleanup system you can install on any dock or floating structure. This nifty little guy cleans up 25 liters per hour of floating trash and debris by sucking in the water around it from the top into a removable mesh filter. Because who wants to surf in a dirty ocean. No one.

Alzheimer’s Disease Is Completely Reversed by Removing Just One Enzyme in New Study – Newsweek

A study this month in the Journal of Experimental Medicine performed by scientists at the Cleveland Clinic identified a key enzyme that, when removed via gene therapy, eliminated the prevalence of Alzheimer’s symptoms in mice as they aged. It remains to be seen how and if this treatment could potentially carry over into human trials, but in the fight against this awful disease, any victory should be celebrated.

New Super Wood Beats Metals in Feats of Strength – Smithsonian

Sure, call me a nerd. But the prospect of a “super wood” that is stronger than steel is interesting to me. By heating, compressing , and soaking boring old regular wood in sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfate, scientists at the University of Maryland have created an essentially renewable material that is 3x denser than regular wood and 12x stronger.

‘Anxiety cells’ identified in the brain’s hippocampus – Medical Press

Palms sweaty? Knees weak? Arms heavy? Published in Neuron, a recent study by neuroscientists at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and the University of California, San Francisco have identified “anxiety cells” in mice that, when “turned up” caused them to elicit more anxious behavior in the form of not wanting to explore their surroundings. Future anxiety treatments could take the form of “turning down” these cells in humans. One step closer to getting my wife to answer the door when pizza is delivered.

A concerned dad joined his son to hitch-hike around the world – Lonely Planet

Awesome read. Free spirited Yiğit Kurt claims to have traveled 20,000 km and over 30 countries via hitchhiking, much to the disapproval of his father. Like any concerned parent, Adnan Kurt only feared the worst could happen, until he accompanied his son and tried it for himself. Together they have experienced unprecedented kindness, and write about their adventures in their blog.

Environmentally friendly sunscreen ingredient made by scientists using genetically modified bacteria – Independent

Key ingredient used in the production of environmentally friendly sunscreen called shinorine had previously been hard to come by, having to harvest it from wild algae. Researchers from the University of Florida have genetically modified bacteria to produce it in large quantities using gene modification. Traditional sunscreen has been shown to contribute to coral bleaching so this is a happy day for the reefs. Horray reefs!

China Has Built a Huge Floating Solar Farm on Top of a Deserted Coal Mine – Futurism

Chinese power company Sungrow Power Supply has created the worlds largest floating solar farm on a lake over an abandoned coal mine.  Great step in the right direction for one of the worlds largest polluters.

About The Monthly Good - Your monthly dose of good news from Joy Energy Time

Do you hate everyone on the internet? Is netflix and a snuggie your favorite pastime to escape from the depressingly soul-crushing real world? Feel like you are constantly force-fed nothing but depressing media until you are fat, sick, and sad? Want to recluse to a cabin in the woods?

Here at Joy Energy Time, we want to help people, it’s at the core of our business model. We try our absolute best to help people cope with their burnout, stress, and anxiety by helping them cultivate more positivity and joy in their lives.

The world is actually a beautiful, rich place, full of people and stories that restore faith in humanity and its ability to move our society forward. That’s why we created this blog series. We were sick of being depressed every time we turned on the tv, read an article, or opened social media. The positive stories are out there, you just have to do some digging. Ok a lot of digging. Like Holes level digging. Fear and negativity sells, just look at the trending stories on any given day. The fact is, the world hasn’t taken a turn for the worse, the research shows that globally things have actually improved for the average person. It’s just that current information exchange has never been faster or easier, so you hear about everything. Again, fear and negativity sells.

What to expect each month: This blog series will be a monthly compilation of various stories/articles/videos etc. that focus on the people who foster progress and make you proud to be a human! Let’s focus on the good! Monthly! The Monthly Good! Get it?

This Startup Will Pay You To Use Less Electricity – Fast Company

San Francisco based startup OhmConnect signs up energy-conscious homes willing to participate in hour long “demand response” events, voluntarily lowering their power consumption at a set time where energy is needed elsewhere in the grip, giving them a reason to unplug for awhile (we can all use that) and giving the grid a meaningful boost in places where it needs it. Oh and they’ll pay you to do so. Awesome!

Scientists Just Solved a Major Piece of the Opioid Puzzle – WIRED

Gets very technical and sciency, this one. But worth the read, especially after our President rightfully declared the opioid epidemic to be a public health emergency. Researchers classified the structure of a different opioid receptor in the brain, one where similar but less addictive opioids can be developed to treat pain.

SuperMeat Raises $3 Million to Produce “Clean Meat” in the Lab – Futurism

Israeli startup SuperMeat just raised $3 million in seed funding to continue work on their lab grown meat.

Creating a real, actual, and more importantly, sustainable source of meat. “Clean meat”, as its called, could dramatically reduce energy, water, and land needs for our food. I mean, I’d try it.
