In the best years of her health: DocDoc co-founder Grace Park

Managing her energy and mood helped DocDoc co-founder Grace Park take back control of her well-being

IN youth, I took pride in my physical fitness. Meeting the demands of being a West Point cadet, a US Army officer, an adventure racer, and a competitive judoka was my thing. I took pride in frequently being one of the few females in the room to represent. And represent I did, becoming a four-time All American in judo and ranking number one among female cadets and number two among the class in overall fitness during my time at West Point.

But then life happened - and 25 years later, I found myself overweight and out of shape. I had joined the corporate healthcare world, got married, birthed a beautiful daughter, and subsequently moved into the life of an entrepreneur.

Now don't get me wrong, I am grateful for my life's path which led me to starting the world's first patient intelligence company. But as I went about juggling the roles of mum and entrepreneur, I found I had focused on everything except for myself, and it showed. When I realised this, I decided to take back control of my well-being. Two principles stood above the rest in helping me get back on track. These also boosted my effectiveness which resulted in greater productivity.
