STRESS!!!

Uncategorized Jun 15, 2021
 

Are your shoulders tight and your jaws clenched? That happens to me when the border collie down the street locks onto me – stressful!! What can you do right now that feels like play? Can you watch some funny cat videos? An episode of your favorite sitcom? Play a goofy prank on the hospital manager? I’ll even lend you my favorite stuffed squeaky ball if that would help! Give yourself permission to play for a few minutes and feel your shoulders and jaws relax.

Stop! In the Name of Love!

 

Are negative thoughts racing around inside your head right now? It’s OK – it happens to me sometimes, when mom won’t get my favorite stuffed squeaky ball out from under the couch. If you’ve got some negative thoughts that make you feel bad use that stop sign – just like the ones on your roads, only make it appear inside your head in front of those negative thoughts. When a negative thought is making you feel bad, put up your mental stop sign and think about something else, or sing the song of your people.

The Power of a Smile

 

Is life raining on your parade today? Some famous human poet named Henry Waddup Somefellow – or something like that – said into every life a little rain must fall. He’s probably right and it’s no fun when it happens. When it’s real rain you can use an umbrella. When it feels like a storm cloud is following you around through your day you could either chew on a kong toy like I do, or try what mom does – focus on making someone near you smile. Your brain is magical – when you make someone else smile it raises your endorphins and makes you feel better too!

Feeling Funky - and Not in a Good Way?

 

Are you in a bit of a funk today? It happens…sometimes I wake up on the wrong side of the crate, too. If that’s going on for you today, crank up the tunes. Put on your favorite party music and play it as loud as you can. And maybe that means headphones on and loud but not too loud, or maybe that means everyone in the hospital better like your tunes because they’re about to hear them. Music can lift you up like nothing else can. Want to feel even better? Dance!!

Why Do I Feel Like an Imposter?

 

Imposter syndrome is where someone feels like they’re in over their head. Is that you sometimes? Do you feel like you’re not good enough, or you’ll be found out and kicked out? Remember these important things about you – you have jumped through all the hoops necessary to get to where you are. You studied hard, passed tests and practicums and internships and boards and you earned your place exactly where you are. You are not an imposter, you’re impressive!!

Debunking Meditation

 

Do you meditate? I saw you roll your eyes – just give me 42 seconds to explain how easy it is. Early in the day sit comfortably in a quiet place, set a timer for 15 minutes, close your eyes and breath deeply. Feel your breath go in and then feel your breath go out. If your brain starts trying to talk to you, sweetly shush it and feel your breath some more. Give yourself 15 minutes each morning to just be still in your brain. Your body, your mind, your spirit, your family, your clients and your patients will all experience the benefit.

Are Your Co-workers Grumpy?

 

Are you dealing with a grumpy co-worker today? It’s no fun…Mom’s grumpy sometimes too. This works for me…maybe you too? I just remember that she’s doing the best she can do in the moment. Sometimes that’s not very good, and she always snaps out of it sooner or later. Can you ignore your grumpy gus’s bad attitude until it passes? If they’re grumpy all the time, fire them…otherwise, focus on how good they are when they’re good and ignore them when they’re not.

Did You Have to Give Someone Bad News Today?

 

Has today been one of those days when you had to give someone bad news? You do that a lot in your job, don’t you? I’m sorry…maybe this will help. Humans feel at their very worst when they don’t know what’s happening – uncertainty is so uncertain! When you tell them what’s going on with their pet – even when it’s not so good – that feels better to them than not knowing. So see…delivering bad news isn’t so bad after all.

Are You Frustrated With Yourself Today?

 

Are you frustrated with yourself today? I was frustrated with me this morning…will I EVER catch that chipmunk under the porch?? Pretend like you’re your best friend – if they’d done what you’re mad at yourself for doing, what would you say to them? Probably not what you’re saying to yourself!! Cut yourself a big piece of slackburger – talk to yourself like you’re your very best friend. Feel better? YAY…

Are You Unappreciated?

 

Some days do you feel unappreciated? Who knew mom would be so upset when I brought her that pretty red leather shoe. I only chewed it a little bit and I did give it to her…sheesh, you’d think I started world war three or something! Anyway, if you’re feeling unappreciated too, give yourself a little present. Buy some flowers for your desk or your kitchen at home…download a new book to read or listen to…go get a decadent coffee. Appreciate yourself and don’t worry about whether anyone else appreciates you or not. Here’s a secret – they do, but they’re human and forgot to tell you that.
