Learning and implementing

This weekend I attended an amazing Pediatric Neurology seminar. I learned applicable things for my practice and for my life. We discussed the importance of social connections on the human brain (adult and pediatric), and the importance of right brain activities (creativity, fun, play) on brain and nervous system development and health. We discussed some alarming statistics (kids ages 13-18 spend almost 9 hours a day on entertainment “media”, over 1million kids under the age of 5 are on psychiatric drugs, etc) and talked about how all of this needs to change. It was a great seminar and I am truly excited to help my patients, friends and my family love better, feel better and become more connected and alive!

We also had a lot of fun with a good friend and their wonderful family. I am grateful!


Reminders to notice


This morning at our meeting at work, Jessica (Office Manager of Lindeman Chiropractic) read a quote about the importance of taking some time to brag/realize our accomplishments.

I am grateful for the reminders to notice (in the midst of trying to improve/grow) how awesome life already is!

My Best Self Planner


A couple years ago, I began my foray into forging my days rather than just letting them happen. I have experimented with different planners and I love the Best Self Planner. It is simple, easy to use, contains some great quotes and has room for morning and evening gratitude. Every morning, as part of my routine, I take some time to plan my day (not just with “things to do” but with inspiration goals as well), check in on my plans for the week and the quarter and re-affirm my purpose. There is a spot on every daily page for writing out your mission/purpose. In the evening before bed, I open it back up, sit in my (squeaky) chair in our bedroom, and check back in to see how I did for the day. There is a section for “lessons learned” aka things I can improve upon and a section for 3 gratitudes from the day.  It is great and I am truly thankful for this great tool.


Also, it came with a dry erase 13 week calendar we use at work for our morning meetings. We write weekly and daily # goals, but also what we are working on as team and individually and we check back in/grade ourselves the following morning, it is a great way to start the work day too!




Yesterday at the office, we had a vision meeting. It was great! We have had meetings in the past on goal setting, but a vision/mission supersedes goal setting. It will take a few short meetings to nail down our true vision, but I am grateful we are all on the same page as to what we want Lindeman Chiropractic to stand for in our community, our city, our state, and our world!

Here is one tool we found quite useful in this endeavor: https://www.rickmaurer.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/CreatingVision.pdf

Banjo Inspiration

Recently, I discovered the song “Going to Mars” by Judah and the Lion. I LOVE THE SONG. The sound is great (never thought I’d rock to a banjo, but they have some amazing songs that make me do just that), and the lyrics are just phenomenal.

Huge reminder to dream big! We can do anything. I believe that 100% and I am grateful for reminders in the most uncanny of places 🙂
