Break from PT

Published August 29, 2013 10:11 AM by Lisa Mueller

I thought I would take a physical therapy break this week and blog a little bit about myself and my other interests. I really respect other therapists in the blogosphere who write regularly and drive needed conversations to progress our profession, but sometimes this lady needs a couch and a glass of wine.

This summer has been very busy. Traveling for work, going to the APTA conference, driving home (two hours north) for many family weekend events, among all the landscaping and house projects I've been trying to accomplish this summer. I'm hoping by fall to wrap up my entryway decor project and install a few hooks on the wall, because that's as decorative as I can get. As I've been caught up with all those things and my New Year's resolution of reading each month, my exercising has gotten a little off track but I'm determined to get it in gear soon.

I turned 29 yesterday. One more year in my 20s. Or, as my friend Michael would say, there are only 11 short years until I'm 40. I had a lovely day, filled with wonderful messages from my family and friends. It's hard to believe 10 years ago (I was old for my grade), I walked onto the Marquette University campus to start my education toward becoming a physical therapist.

I'm taking a family vacation next month to California and am really looking forward to the trip. I hope to see some great sights, eat delicious food, and maybe even find a couch and a glass of Napa Valley wine!

Actually, you bring up an important point...as professionals we need to look after ourselves. That means taking time off and focusing on something other than our profession. It prevents burn out, allows us to refresh, and often we return with a clearer head and renewed drive.

Enjoy Napa and have a wonderful holiday!
