40 Things Doctors Do to Live Longer

If you know any doctors—we mean, know them well—you know the deep, dark secret hiding under their lab coats: They’re human. When they get stressed, they overeat; when they want to party, they’ll have some drinks; when they worry about their practice, they’ll stay up too late.

“Doctors are not really known to take care of themselves as much as they should!” admits Dr. Thomas Jeneby, a plastic surgeon from Texas. “We suffer more depression, burnout, long hours, heart attacks, strokes and general breakdown. But, there are some perks!”
