THE POWER OF CONNECTION DURING UNCERTAIN TIMES
Hello there! It’s been a pretty wild month, hasn’t it? There’s a lot of uncertainty out there, and I think one of the best ways we can cope is to focus on what is within our control and to try to find the silver linings whenever possible. Know that we are here for you through this time. We are doing all we can to serve people while adhering to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations and taking all the necessary precautions. We want to remain as available as possible to treat people postoperatively and to help anyone who is experiencing pain. I know your rehabilitation program is an important part of healing and recovery, and we don’t take that part of our jobs lightly. We’re utilizing various means for staying in touch with patients. We also encourage you to stick with your at- home exercises. Keeping yourself strong and healthy through this time will help you come out stronger on the other side of it. Recently, I was invited to speak with MINDBODYRADIO, an organization that hosts daily broadcasts that feature different health and wellness experts and seeks to provide a platform to create awareness around the variety of options for living a healthier, happier life. It was a great experience, and it reminded me about the power of connection, especially that of the connections we share even when we’re keeping our respective social distances. People I’ve never met before called in after the show because they hadn’t heard of occupational therapy before and wanted to know more. It was inspiring and motivating to get these reactions, and it just makes me more excited to continue building on what I do.
If you’re looking for some resources through this time, MINDBODYRADIO has a variety of shows to listen to, each aimed at a different aspect of finding health and wellness. You can find them all at MINDBODYRADIO.com. Knowledge is power. It’s something we’re reminded of daily in what we do: We get to share what we’ve spent years studying with our patients to help them heal and recover. I encourage you to seek out resources this month that empower you and help you carve out some space for yourself. Be it yoga, meditation, your home exercises, motivational books and podcasts, or simply taking a minute to call a loved one, do something nice for yourself this month.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions. We are here for you.
