Easing in to The New Normal

Gosh… it’s been anything but easy to get to this point, hasn’t it?

Some of us have been thrust in to a world of upheaval.
Work from home… or no work.
Home schooling… or no child care.

Others of us have been thrust in to a world of upheaval.
Short staffed… or double shifts.
New work… or new ways of working.

No two ways about it. A global virus that globally contained us to our homes changed our relationship to the outside world, to each other, and maybe even to ourselves. Even if it’s just for a while

In that way though, crisis also brings opportunity. “The New Normal”.
The question is… How will you use this opportunity to improve your relationship to the outside world, to other people, or even improve yourself?
Now is the time.

I recently watched a video with Matthew McConaughey.
“Life is not easy…” he said, “…do not fall in to the trap of feeling like you’re a victim”.  This video struck a cord in the context current global events. So I am sharing the link with the hopes that it helps inspire you as you navigate any opportunity this crisis may have brought you.

Over the past few months you’ve received emails from us talking about reducing your sense of fragility and increasing your resilience when it comes time to do the things you do.

Avoid the trap of feeling like a victim when stiffness or pain hold you back from those activities. We have so many services in place to help you. Multimodal care refers to using a combination of approaches in your care. Maybe you need some guidance or an assurance. Maybe you need to understand your health or the activity better. You could be looking for a new exercise or a way to move better. Or maybe you just need those helping hands.

The activities you do are your business. Helping you stay active is ours.
