We have now finished week 2 of the Resilient Nature Therapy Program that I'm leading. Last week, we had pouring rain! And everyone stuck around. It was a different experience for most of us to pay attention to the rain without trying to get out of it!

One of my favourite practices in nature is the sit spot. It is as simple as it sounds! Find a spot outdoors (or by a window if that's not possible). Put away your phone or other distractions and bring your attention to your senses.

I took a walk on my lawn in bare feet for the first time this spring yesterday. It was amazing how much sensation I noticed through my feet. It also felt a bit revolutionary to step onto the sidewalk without my shoes on! For this week's I invite you to spend a few minutes with no shoes on.

Singing activates our parasympathetic nervous system and it's a practice our clients can be open to even if they aren’t ready for a more formal contemplative practice. Any particular song that you find meaningful to sing?

I learnt this practice from Bronwyn Paynter. For me, it gives me a focus when I'm walking and invites me to really look closely at the world around me.

This idea was a study in an article in the Journal of Positive Psychology in 2016. There were more positive emotions in people who walked and brought mindful attention to the natural world around them versus the human made world.

Addressing Sleep

Sleep should occupy a lot of our day. However, for many people it is hard to get adequate sleep. As an OT, I work to help people address difficulties with whatever occupies their time (or should). Sleep is often the first issue that I address.

This spring, I will be offering a course in Ottawa for women in their 40s or beyond who are struggling with sleep. Stay tuned for more details.

In February 2020, I am offering a webinar for other occupational therapists who want to learn more about addressing sleep for people with chronic pain. Registration is open through the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.
