I’m Dr. Tosin Odunsi
The Life Motivator

I’m an Obstetrics and Gynecology physician who loves all things wellness. Why? Because after I became a young widow in 2015, my life as I knew it was shattered! I thought my hopes and dreams were over. That couldn’t have been further from the truth.

I have discovered so much beauty in my new normal, and have made it my business to be transparent about both the joyful and not so pretty portions of my life. I also help women reset their mindset so that they can live a full and intentional life now!

What do you like to do for fun?

I love to sing and dance. My favorite type of music is Afrobeats. I also really enjoy decluttering and organizing my home. There’s a peaceful feeling I get when my space is minimal and fresh.

How do you balance your time between being a physician and everything else?

I have a big picture list of what I want to achieve during the year saved on my phone and use it as a quick reference as I map things out. I know that trying to remember everything will give me anxiety, so I write down EVERYTHING I need to get done. I am old school and have a physical planner. I start by planning out month by month with engagements I have already committed to. Then, I plan week by week based on my work schedule. Next, I plan day by day to help me check things off my To-Do list. 

I always include buffer time to allow for things to take longer than anticipated or to go wrong. Finally, it’s important that I schedule time for self-care. During my medical journey, I lost so much sleep and sacrificed my own health one too many times. I work hard, but I also factor in time to take care of myself. That means I set time to work out and have a bedtime since I know I can’t give my best if I’m not at my best.
