Following a brain injury, we may find that the skills that once came naturally to us, now are difficult to achieve. But there is good news. We no longer have to limit ourselves.
The contents of the slideshow can benefit anyone as they seek to enhance their coordination, agility, balance, and focus.
Below is a link to my newest slideshow. Please watch and share the slideshow with anyone whom you believe could benefit
Whatever you are able to do with your dominant side of your body, start doing – mirroring – the same ability with your non-dominant side of your body. Start out slowly, but be persistent in your commitment. Work on one part (drill) of the skill at a time. As you become comfortable with that particular part of the skill, move onto the next part of the skill. By combining parts of the skill (small successes) you will find that you have learned or relearned a new skill. As you master that skill, begin working on parts of another skill.
Combine those parts (small successes) into learning that skill. As you continue in that process, you will be able to combine each skill into a skill set. As I have found, by doing so you will be able to learn or relearn new skills sets. In the process, you will create new neural pathways and brain reorganization. In the process, you will improve your quality of l your life through small successes.
This slideshow focuses on enhancing and empowering our quality of living after an injury or illness to our brain.
“How do you eat an elephant?”, one man said to the other. The man asked, “Tell me the answer”. One bite at a time. What you see as an elephant (skill or ability) may seem overwhelming. My encouragement to you my friend — as I need to remember too — would be that you work on consuming the elephant, one part at a time. By doing so, your elephant will be reduced (through small successes) to a new or relearned skill., because you kept “chewing”.
Below are links to short video presentations showing the progression of how the concept of neuroplasticity through repetitive mirrored movements have benefited my mind and body. The progress made spans over each of the past 5 years. Click on the below links and they will open for you on YouTube.
Earlier this year I created a power point presentation that I would invite you to view by clicking on the below link.
I am available to present this power point presentation at your upcoming conference.
