April is Occupational Therapy Month! And if you’ve even thought of a career that gives you the option to work from home, work in a hospital, work in the community, work at school, work with infants, work with the elderly, work with adults, work with kids, work with play therapy, work with stress management, work with hand rehabilitation, work with pain management, work with surgery recovery, work with people with disabilities, work with people seeking wellness … well, that’s only a small view of the big picture that a career in OT offers.
Half of your university education will focus on the physical body side of healing and the other half of your university education will focus on the mental health mind side of healing. It’s one of the first mind-body integration therapies out there. The profession started over 100 years ago working with vets returning from war with PTSD and physical injuries … therapy consisted of activities that strengthened the body while engaging the creative side of the brain using arts and crafts. Occupational Therapists are pros at analyzing an activity (horseback riding, ceramics, soccer) and noticing what the mind and body needs to do to perform that skill … then they match the client’s interests to an activity and maximize the therapeutic benefits and magic happens.
Occupational Therapy is concerned with a person living life to their fullest in every aspect of their life … in their daily occupations … whether that is in cooking dinner, working, dressing, shopping, or managing their money. And that leads to the title of this blog – Making Your Money Dreams Come True. Stress is the mind side of living life to the fullest and money can be a huge source of stress.
This month I’ll be applying over 30 years of experience as an Occupational Therapist and am offering a free stress management telephone conference focused on making your money dreams come true so you can really live life to it’s fullest. A telephone conference is simply a group call to a certain phone number on a certain day at a certain time. The day is April 25, 2019 at 7:30pm (Eastern Time Zone). To get the call in number, simply register for the class!
I hope a hundred of you will join in and have an experience of what Occupational Therapy can offer you!
