The Young Doctors Discovery Summit

There is a high prevalence of  burnout and depression in young doctors in training. This leads to unintended consequences: failure, errors, drop out from studies or practice. Massive costs to taxpayers.

Discovery Health is rolling out a program to try reverse this tide.

On Sunday 15th April I presented my model of Building Resilience.

The main thread running through my 2 hour presentation was the evidence-based FLIP365 Prescription, The Seven Adventures in Wellness.

Afterwards, the SADAG Panel facilitated a discussion on practical ways for Young Doctors to recognize depression in themselves and colleagues. I enjoyed this contribution, finishing off the discussion with one of favorite aphorisms, from Mahatma Ghandi – BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT.

What is cool is that all fifty participants from around the country received a hard copy of my book, sponsored by Discovery. Nice validation of its contents.

Also, a twitter chat of some of my comments.

The content is sourced from the best health research centers on the planet (plus over forty years studying the brain).

My free website and mobile app contain curated posts of the leading authors and innovative ideas about how to live fully, not just surviving; and additional up to date notes of the contents of the book.

Do you want to?


1) Sleep at least seven hours every night
2) Daily brisk walking (20 minutes) or aerobic equivalent
3) Eat real food. Green carbs. Mainly non-starchy veggies . Moderate protein. Healthy fats. Water. Not too much.
4) Everyday, in many ways, challenge your brain.
5) Relaxation response (10-20 minutes)
6) Make daily space for friendships
7) One hour of digital detox for stillness experiences and mindfulness practices

Everyday X Seven Weeks X Seven Repetitions, Forever

The Seven Adventures of Wellness (How To Live Well)

Postnet Long Avenue, Glenhazel, Johannesburg (for bulk orders or to courier)

R300.00 all inclusive of 15% Vat.

Free Mobile App Available at Google or Apple Store. Title FLIP365

Daily Blog. Publication of my book. The Seven Adventures in Wellness.

Today I start writing a blog for the FLIP365 website and mobile app. For yesterday I completed my book, The Seven Adventures in Wellness.

Although it needs tweaking around typos, and remains a work in progress, it is now available for the public.

The thread that runs through the book is the FLIP365 Resilience Prescription. Seven areas of your lifestyle that can improve your brain health, physical health, relationships, boost energy and live really well.

Tiny daily changes in each wellness behavior all adds up and after a few weeks you will notice changes. It is a prescription for the rest of your life. Imagine yourself as a continual work in progress! Lightens the load, paradoxically.

Want a copy?

Alan and Enhle at Postnet, Long Avenue, Glenhazel, will print the book on demand. Payment is at the counter. (R300 a copy).

This is a cool idea as any changes in the content, and there will certainly will be, are updated in the next PDF I send to them. So no holding stock. If anyone wants to purchase a book from afar, it can be couriered anywhere in South Africa as there are over 350 PostNet’s countrywide. On arrival at the local Postnet an SMS is sent immediately to the purchaser.

(Also can email them

Already one client has ordered fifty copies for a nationwide workshop, where I am honored to present, in a two hour keynote slot, the principles and practices of building resilience.

I am excited about the completion of the (work) book – The Seven Adventures in Wellness – as it synergizes well with the mobile app FLIP365 and website Daily posts are delivered into one of the seven adventures Eg a post on depression and diet in the Eat Real Food category.

So there is ongoing updating of interesting ideas to build your knowledge in each of the specific adventures. Already there are 302 posts since commencing the app in July 2017.

I am reluctant to publish an ebook, as I want to encourage breaks from screen time as well as allowing the reader to make notes in the margins, and to take ownership of the material. Another vital reason for a non-digital publication, is it can be an adjunct at any of my “live” presentations.

My next goal is to develop a FLIP365 M.O.O.C. (Massive Online Open Course), often linked to a university. It is a modular model, a mix of videos, writings, quizzes, … and can reach a worldwide audience. It is an audacious project! Every participant can use my book as a reference, as I will be teaching content from the Seven Adventures in Wellness.

Afterwards, with a bit of luck, I would love to do a presentation. I often insert their videos into the FLIP365 app. Beautifully produced, and limits time length to under 18 minutes.

So it is with my book. Limited to 120 pages and 24,000 words. It is purposefully designed as a A 4 landscape print, with a ring coil bind. So you can easily flip from page to page.

The Seven Adventures in Wellness, in a way, reflects my wonderful journey of over forty years of the brain terrain!
