I commit to getting the necessary 8 hours of sleep each night in order for my mind and body to function properly
My commitment is to set aside time for my family, friends and dog to alleviate stress, relax, and just have fun. I enjoy trying out new restaurants with my friends and taking my dog on car rides.

I will drink 3 L of water a day and at least 2 L during my clinical rotations. By the end of any given day I am typically dehydrated so hopefully this will serve as a reminder to drink throughout the day rather than waiting until I am incredibly thirsty.
