In this episode, Dr. McGowan discusses navigating the COVID-19 pandemic as a mom, wife, and physician. She discusses how she rearranged her life and got clearer on her values and priorities to be more present as a mom and wife.  We discuss the addiction of being busy and how to begin to unhook yourself. We get into recovering from trauma, from being a veteran, a doctor, and a parent during the pandemic.
