Burnout is on the rise. This is a problem we cannot afford to ignore. The rising costs of burnout are staggering. Health care professionals sacrifice their health, happiness, and relationships. Fortunately, there is a solution. Dr. Greg Hammer created GAIN Without Pain so that health care professionals can prevent burnout and reclaim happiness.
This proven path toward personal resilience can be implemented by anyone, anywhere, in just a few minutes a day. Increased resilience could save your practice, your patients, your marriage – or even your life. GAIN Without Pain is a four-step process toward happiness. GAIN is an acronym for Gratitude, Acceptance, Intention, and Nonjudgment.
