Meet two awesome women from my family 💗 My mum, Judy and mother in-law, Joan.
I mentioned dealing with change in my last post but here it is from another perspective!
Unfortunately, Joan broke her wrist recently and needed the above sling. Learning to adapt to changes in ability was something we had in common for the time she could only use one arm.
I've sought advice from wise Joan before but this time the tables turned and she was messaging me for tips and tricks to get through the day with fewer digits at the ready 😂It was really quite funny - the change in roles, not Joan's injury!
We both agreed that, on a positive note, she could still do the most important thing and hold a cup of coffee!
Joan and I got talking about how remarkable the human brain is with adapting to change.
I mentioned that, at first, I found my new hands difficult to use but after time and with practice, they just began feeling 'normal' to me (even if they don't look it) 👍. Your mind is SO powerful and I don't mean that in a woo-woo way. There's heaps of evidenced-based science to back me up.
You can apply this same thinking (or same principles) to changes you want to make in your own life, without amputations or broken bones 🤣 Even though the change may feel awkward or difficult at first, with perseverance your brain adapts and it can eventually become your version of normal.
We hope you all have an amazing day 😘xx
