Welcome back to the Healthy Life Podcast.. how long and how intently are you willing to work to return normal functioning within your body. Let me ask this, have you ever been to a T-ball game? It was trademarked in the 70’s but invented in the 50’s in several places. Why... to increase the overall success of baseball. Think about it... how many kids at 5 through 7 can accurately hit a baseball? In fact kids spend years learning to improve their eye hand coordination and we patiently wait and repeat things again and again.
Anger, and aggressive behavior do not work in early stages of learning... instead successful outcome learning occurs through spaced repetition and positive reinforcement. I have been challenged so many time by so many people it makes my head spin. I am a stroke survivor... I had a real and serious stroke... and I will help you become successful so listen carefully.
Today I am going to be speaking with those who have reached the basic level of movement in their hand that is noticeable. It does not need to be fast but it needs to be definite, visible, and can be started and stopped voluntarily. So you ask... how do i promote and see more movement? How do I build control in the movements that I do see? If I don’t see movement yet an I hopeless?
Promoting movement is simple but not easy... it requires consistent and dedicated involvement and although this podcast is more for those who have movement... many of the things I recommend to increase movement are necessary steps in getting it back. The biggest key to movement returning and control is daily involvement and usage... again my mantra “use it... or loose it” also go slow. Slower is better and definitely more challenging.
Building Control In Movement (BICM)
Building control in movement requires an extreme devotion to attitude, controlling thoughts, and patience! I will stop now and mention that if you are struggling with “information overload”, panic attacks, or depression, you need to get a handle on these areas before you can experience successful outcomes in control. (Tomorrow I’ll focus the podcast on those challenges.)
For those of you listening that are on the verge of giving up.... don’t! I personally went through 3 years of beating my head against a figurative “brick wall” before I found hope and answers. If you are serious about getting movement back... then reach out! Send me an email... I see everything that comes through stroke.global. I must confess often made tired while reading post after posts of people complaining... when I respond and ask them to reach out to me... they mark like and that’s where it ends! It’s not a joke, I’m serious about helping, I’ve spent close to 20 years helping others, and I’ve nothing to gain except seeing others improve. I understand doubts and thinking some things are too good to be true... but I also understand regret... and vowed never to go there. I chose to never live in the world of regrets... in fact I’ve only had one regret in my life... I didn’t act soon enough.
