Daily Challenge……Home / Mind-Set
‘I’m living in a place I don’t want to be (an old folks home) and I’m definitely not ready for it!!’
I am feeling….. Insecure / Out of Control / Vulnerable
Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
At Ease / Comfortable / Satisfied
Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
Is this something I can change and if not, how can I change my Mind-Set around my new situation?
How does where I am living benefit me?
Where do I need to place my focus?
Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Assess whether you can change the situation and if not, decide to be happy IN the situation, even if you are not happy WITH the situation.
Focus on the good points of where you are living (they will be there, you just have to look for them).
Think of the ‘Home’ as a Hotel, with the carers being the Hotel staff.
Drop the ‘Home’ word from the name, refer to it as ‘The ……Hotel’.
Embrace this new era of your life and set out to make new friends within your new environment.
Adopt a friendly attitude to those around you and be cheerful.
Remember the response you get from others is a reflection of what is going on for you.
