Back to Basics

One of the greatest human inventions is the automobile.

This invention has allowed us to travel the world, to transport goods, to deliver aid and many other uses.

But with all of these great benefits, there are unfortunately, some negatives, such as when they stop working!

If you think of a Motorbike for example, if this was to malfunction, there really could be 101 differing diagnoses depending on the expert / mechanic you talk to …

Some diagnoses could be expensive, some could be time consuming and others may completely misdiagnose.

But ultimately, a petrol engine only needs three elements to function:

Fuel

Air

… and a spark

So if a Petrol engine is not running, it is really recommended that the basics are checked first, to prevent expense and potential prolonged pain of not having any transport.

This is also very true with regards to the human body, when experiencing any physical symptom, always go back to basics e.g.:

Sleep

Hydration / Nutrition

Emotion State

Of course, I am not saying do not seek medical help, but you could save yourself some time by investigating the quality of the above three areas of your life first.

Check In

To simplify I work with people who are in one place (pain), and want to be in a new place (out of pain).

We can easily compare this journey to flying a plane to a new destination.

No plane journey is straight forward for a pilot; he or she takes into account all the variables which affect the planes course including wind speed, direction, weather conditions, temperature and the weight of the plane.

They constantly check-in with the instrument gauges and may make adjustments which keep the plane on the course that they need to be on.

This metaphor is relevant to being on a journey of pain recovery.

First you decide and commit to the journey and whilst on that journey, you may very well need to check in and make any changes that are going to promote your recovery.

Be a pilot with your health and don’t be disheartened if you have to make some adjustments along the way.
