New YouTube video
Covid-19 has caused many of my patients to feel anxious, fearful and otherwise unsettled. This YouTube video will help you to better understand and emotions, self-talk and beliefs.
You are welcome to share this video with family and friends. I look forward to any comments, as well as suggestions for future videos on such topics as fatigue related illness, gut problems and challenges with stress, anxiety and depression.
Practising gratitude has many benefits.
You can feel a lot better when you become aware of the good things that have happened during the day.
Here are some questions that you can ask yourself at the end of each day. They can be answered during the evening meal with family or at bedtime. Just before bed, our mind is very receptive. And no matter what we may have been worried about or what went wrong during the day, we have the chance to let good feelings ease us into sleep.
Here are seven great questions: Today what was the best thing…
- 1. I saw.
- 2. I ate.
- 3. I did for me.
- 4. I did for someone else.
- 5. I received.
- 6. I found funny.
- 7. I learned.
Patients tell me that this gratitude practice has helped them develop a more positive focus and that they are making more of an effort to be thankful and appreciative.
