Today I want to talk about something that is pretty fun. Are you present during your rehabilitation process? This is a fun topic for me, because you can interpret this in many different ways. So what does being present mean?
When you go to someone to get help, don’t just sit there and zone out. This will not help you and you won’t get much out of the session. However, if you walk side by side with them, you are going to start learning what your body is really doing. This is because you are paying attention to what is happening. To be present, you have to stop everything. For example, when you go to a massage therapist and you go to sit down on the table, clear out all the noise. You need to pause and then listen to what is going on. Then clarify by paying attention to what your massage therapist is doing. How does it feel as your muscles are being worked on? Trust your body and what you are doing to be present. When you are running outside, stop all the distractive noise. It is you time. Listen to what’s truly happening. How does your knee feel as it’s running? Then clarify by seeing how it needs to move instead. Finally, trust your body to take you to through that process. You will be surprised how just that thought change will shift the way you feel. This applies to all rehabilitation processes.
No longer can you solely depend on someone for improving yourself, you need to be part of the process by being present. This is because the body is designed to defend itself against anything external. So be present on what’s happening and keep an active role. Don’t ever let anyone take your power away, because then you are diminishing your self-worth. That’s not worth it, because then your body is going to give up. Remember this: whatever you tell yourself – is right. If you think someone else needs to fix your pain, then someone else will need to fix your pain. Yet if you think you can improve by yourself with some assistance, then this different type of thinking will change your attitude. So please stay present during your rehabilitative process. If you liked this tip, please share it to others. This is important in getting people to look within to see what it is they need help with.
