I’m curious. What’s one thing you’d change in your practice, if you could? Would you change where you work? Change how you work? Change who you work with? Or….?
I ask because sometimes we clinicians can get into a rut. We lean so heavily into the ‘therapeutic mode’ that we keep doing things the same old way because we’ve always done them that way.
This happens to me, and I’m guessing it might happen to you, too.
Many times, we can identify the changes we want to make. We may even know how to make them. Yet we still don’t do them.
As humans, we like the comfort of habit.
I’m not saying that you should make changes recklessly or with complete abandon. What I am suggesting, though, is that there could be small changes that you could make- right now- today- that would make a difference in your happiness as a therapist and in your quality of life.
Do you need a new chair? Better lighting? Time for lunch?
What’s one thing you would change?
Figured it out?
When will you do it?
