Work and Life Balance

Jeremiah Gums, M.D.
Internal Medicine


One of the biggest problems that we see in clinic is issues with work and life balance.

Stress leads to a lot of complications, a lot of health issues. What we really need to do is help people facilitate getting that on track.

A lot of people really benefit from having a schedule, writing things down, getting an idea of how they can make the most out of their day.

Making sure you leave work issues at work. The last thing you want to do is bring work stress home to the family. It just makes it difficult for everybody.

So, try finding a good way to do that. Sometimes people really find that drive home therapeutic, just to de-stress and kind of let everything go. But once you get home make sure that's time for your family, and time for yourself.

Maintaining a healthy work and life balance can be difficult. Dr. Jeremiah Gums​, Internist with Boys Town Internal Medicine, explains how you can get the most out of your day and avoid bringing work issues home with you
