Current Readings; Atomic Habits - James Clear, Can't Hurt Me - David Goggins (Audio), How to Change Your Mind - David Pollan
Supplemental Engagements: Secretariat - ESPN Classic Film and Full Heart - SI long-form article on Secretariat --> This came up in a discussion of sport journalism and is an incredible glimpse at the mystery and power of sport, through one of its greatest figures. Powerful stuff !
MLive article about a MI high school hockey player who recently took their own life. Very sad story, and my heart breaks for the Mona Shores and Michigan hockey community.
Session topics/ activities:
Discussions about self-worth and use of the "cup of self-worth" activity (to be further discussed in the resource page). The importance of self-talk, as well as identifying negative beliefs that appear so that we can immediately counter them with words that are more realistic and grounded in the present. This is a great activity and demonstrates the importance of being our own consistent, reliable source of self-worth as opposed to feeling the need for others to validate us... only to be disappointed when they cannot satisfy the need.
Hypnotherapy for pain management and healing: Two new recordings were completed last week and more scheduled for this week. Topics will focus again on healing and pain management. Activities that promote safe, and adaptive mind-body connection are important when dealing with chronic pain or going through a phase of intense recovery (i.e. surgery). Connecting to the natural healing power of the body and each of its cells can not only improve their function but offer a sense of mental healing as well. This is a challenge with opiates and pain blocking medications ! Though completely necessary, they can complicate the relationship we have with pain and the signals the body is relaying.
