We have a new Chiropractic Assistant who has started at Northcote Chiro, the lovely Ellie, and she has inspired Dr Dem this week to be more grateful. At Northcote we start each day with a team focus to get everyone working towards a common goal and stay connected as a team regardless of whether we are interacting in person or not. Having a morning focus also helps to bring everyone back into the room and to the focus when you are feeling challenged. As humans we are notorious for having busy minds going at a million miles an hour, day to day and by having a daily focus or daily affirmation to continually reflect on during the day brings your mind back to the present. Sounds pretty similar to mindfulness doesn’t it? And we know some of the benefits of mindfulness include – reduce stress, reduce pain and improved wellbeing.
Challenge for this week: Pick a focus on Sunday to use for the week. Take note of how it feels to reflect on this periodically throughout each day when you are feeling challenged, uninspired or want to be more present – if it is something that feels good for you why not incorporate it into your day to day 🙂
