From Sonal: I have been actively involved in ‘Wellness in medicine , wellness as a woman in medicine ‘ for almost a decade. I am part of wellness committees at my hospital and presented grand rounds.

In my practice as an internist I focus specifically on mental , physical and spiritual health! I do talk about impact of eating healthy and thinking healthy. Wellness is not one dimensional. It’s multidimensional, it needs to me nurtured. Resilience is a muscle that develops as a result of mindful nurturing of mind , body and soul!

Episode 74: Shed the Shoulds with Dr. Wendy Schofer

This week’s episode features pediatrician and life coach Dr. Wendy Schofer. We discuss her journey into becoming a life coach after seeing her patients in her practice struggle with obesity. “Should” is a word I’ve tried hard to eliminate from my vocabulary and so this episode really was close to home for me. I hope you all enjoy listening to this episode!


Find out more about Dr. Schofer at http://www.wendyschofermd.com


Dr Wendy Schofer is a pediatrician, lifestyle physician and family life and weight coach. Her 16+ years in clinical practice has taken her from military medical practice around the world, to primary care and then to nonprofit community work. She brings experience having difficulty conversations, supporting parents through emotional and behavioral challenges, transitioning (repeatedly!) in the military, using lifestyle as medicine, and a big dose of fun to coaching. Coaching has brought a new level of personal satisfaction and enjoyment to her clinical practice, and is the elusive missing link for helping families enjoy health at home. She helps parents “shed the shoulds” to address the fears around nutrition and overweight, and become the confident role model for family health.

She realized over the years that we all have embarrassing funny stories and that sharing these with each other is a great way to bond, connect, laugh together, and feel less alone in our imperfections. She believes it also changes our mindset so that we are not only viewing our foibles through the lens of humor and story telling, but we also look for opportunities to share them with others as a gift. Her advice to others is to share your embarrassing funny stories every chance you get. It’s addictive and infectious! She would love to start a movement whereby instead of being mired in isolating embarrassment, we are all laughing at ourselves together!
