New Years Resolutions
New Years Resolutions....what are yours for 2013?
I tend to have ongoing resolutions, constantly remaking them in my head..striving to do better each day, each week, each month, each year: for myself, my patients/clients and for those who I hold dear. Here are some of my top ongoing resolutions to maximize success with clients/patients and maximize success in life:
1-Make relationships the number one priority.
2- Listen..really listen. I believe it is one of the three(see the second and third in resolution number 1 and 3) qualities that increase success with my patients/clients. Listen to what they are telling you : their words are often the window to where you need to lead them.
3--Remember to feed the mind, body and soul of my patients/clients, my friends, my family and myself. Healing and wellness are three dimensional.
4-Treat every client and every patient as if they were my father, mother, grandparent....no matter what...no matter if they are bitter, angry, uncleanly, insulting, or not being an active participant in their recovery. To remember that I only know a miniscule aspect of their lives and I will treat everyone with the grace and love that I have for those that are closest to me.
5- Forgiveness will set you free.
6- Drink water(not Diet Coke and not coffee but water..just water): the body needs to be hydrated to perform at its top abilities , it needs to be hydrated for optimal healing and water flushes the toxins from our bodies. Many sources say we need to drink half of our body weight( in ounces) each day.
7- Eat food...real food. That which comes directly from the Earth...not “food” with a long list of “ingredients” that can not even be pronounced.
8- Increase flexibility.. as I work in my profession year after year, I have come to realize that many of the body’s dysfunctions come from shortened muscles preventing proper alignment of joints and proper synchrony of movement. Of course, tri-planar , three dimensional stretching reaps the greatest rewards and is the piece that is often missing in clients who are striving to increase their flexibility.
9- Continue to strive to use the gifts that I have been given and use them to the best of my ability.
10=Never give up...work every single day toward being the best that I can be...the best wife, the best mom, the best clinician, the best innovator, the best human that I can be.
Happy 2013 to all of my friends and family. I am truly blessed to have each of you in my life!
