These phrases summarize the principles associated with AA. Participants for this study were asked to interpret several of these phrases including “First things First”, “Live and let live”, “Fake it till you make it”, “Play it through”, and “One day at a time”. Many respondents indicated that “first things first” means prioritizing sobriety and only doing only one thing at a time. Next, many interpret “Live and let live” to mean that one should focus on themselves and accept others as they are. These phrases were exemplified throughout the meeting I went to because many members insinuated that sobriety is their number one priority.

I strive to deliver good customer service and to ensure our customers feel valued and appreciated in a time when they expect the best service in return for their paid premium. Since mid-year review I have made the effort of proactively getting back into the claims for follow up with customers, attorneys and medical providers; I believe my year end numbers are a reflection of my daily work and
However, he became an advocate; by embracing his diagnosis through representing his diagnosis, he slowly healed from the past, revealing his true identity. Growing social support correlated with a growth in his personal development. Every time social support increased it mirrored a discovery and betterment in himself. Furthermore, he progressed in an ever-changing personal growth, including managing his emotions and developing integrity. With this narrative of disability from Michael J Fox, it is evident that the identity crisis of acquiring a new disability can confound people’s lives; yet once the person accepts the disability, true stability and empowerment is found through advocacy and support.
Mindfulness is defined as, “paying attention to one’s own ongoing experience in a way that allows openness and flexibility. It is being fully present and aware during our daily activities” (Compton & Hoffman, 2013, p. 90). I learned of mindfulness a few years ago while reading, “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle and it changed my life. Mindfulness can be used in walking to focus thoughts and experience the surroundings which will lead to well-being because it makes it an experience instead of “just exercise”. Meditation is a practice I will integrate back into my daily routine which utilizes mindfulness and may enhance the possibility of flow.
Additionally, this experience helped me to develop effective therapeutic communication techniques and enforce skills to provide enhanced care for the resident.

Improving these interactions will benefit in the overall comfort of the patient and improve the care that I will provide to them. Overall, this Long Term Care experience provided me with the necessary fundamental skills practice and critical thinking development that will be utilized in the following semesters and throughout my nursing
A pleasurable aspect volunteering at the United Hebrew Nursing and Rehabilitation facility was the opportunity to see the patients actively involved in meaningful therapeutic activities. In keeping the same schedule for several weeks it allowed me to briefly follow certain clients rehabilitation regimes. It enabled me to gain an understanding of the role of an Occupational Therapist in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and rehabilitation setting. Therefore, I found it interesting seeing the strategies implemented in the sessions, such as, home hazard assessment and interventions before the patient is discharged. For instance, placing items on the floor and asking a high functioning patient how/if they could pick up the items if home alone.
I feel like I have a solid handle on accomplishments in my life now. When I have multiple projects, I tend to have a focused energy and sometimes forget other areas that require attention as well. Within the past year I have done better in this area but still need improvement. I consistently have a clear plan to my week and follow a daily task list during my

Using an "Integrated Addiction Model (I.AM)", the counselors and clinicians are able to focus on the "Why" of each person 's addiction. We further enhance this approach by also using the 12 step principles, a trauma Model and functional medicine practices. The end goal is always identifying triggers and teaching the patient how to cope with life on life 's terms without needing a harmful substance. While some of the resort style rehabs may have more fun appeal, Healing Springs is all about the healing process. We use the personal touch to make everyone feel comfortable about being part of an addiction treatment program.
