Wellness Tips: Finding Satisfaction in Your Work

Perhaps you just finished high school, or recently decided to change your career path after many years. No matter the situation, you came to Ultimate Medical Academy full of hope and ready for new responsibilities.

Although you try to maintain that enthusiasm, there may be days, or even longer stretches of time, when your motivation fades. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Learn how to make the most out of your education.



Check out How to Stay Motivated for the Entire School Year for tips on how to keep going strong. You’ll find there are actions you can take to defend yourself against the typical wear and tear of the school year.

Stress is Stress

The stress you experience in school can be the same type of stress you experience in the workplace.

Knowing how to build resilience can be key to successful completion of an educational program, or to thrive at your job. The article, Building Workplace Resilience, from the UMA Student Guidance Center might help you understand how to pinpoint the causes of stress and react to pressure.

Find the Silver Lining

Gratitude is a simple concept that can help you find personal satisfaction in your work. Whether it be schoolwork or job-related tasks, reminding yourself of what you are grateful for, and sharing gratitude with others, can bolster your spirit, reduce negative feelings, and enhance empathy.

Ways to feel and share gratitude might include keeping a daily journal of inspirational thoughts, blogging about best practices, and keeping a jar with slips of paper that have written reminders of what you are grateful for.

Keep Your Head Up

Think about why you decided to enroll. Imagine the feeling you’ll have when you’re able to walk across the stage at graduation. The stress you might feel now, while very real, is temporary. Those feelings you’ll have down the road, and the memories they’ll create—that will last a lifetime.

So, stay focused on your goals, and when things get tough along the way try out some of these techniques! Remember, UMA is always here to help.
