Occupational Therapy: Lifestyle Solutions
Are you tired of feeling overwhelmed, dissatisfied, or unproductive?
Do want to explore your habits, routines, and rituals around eating, exercising, sleeping, or stress-coping?
Do you suffer from anxiety, depression, or chronic pain?
If you are answering "yes," then we can work together to use USC's Lifestyle Redesign strategies, mindfulness techniques, positive psychology, and motivational interviewing to assess your personal strengths and needs and develop a plan of action. This plan will help you achieve your goals related to meaningful activities in your life. You will feel more focused as we help you develop healthy habits and routines, more engaged in your meaningful relationships, and more productive in all your occupations.
Lifestyle Solutions - What we can do for you!
The path to health and well-being is intricately linked to participating in daily occupations. Occupational therapy focuses on enabling clients to maximize their capacity to participate in life activities that are important and meaningful to them, to promote overall health and wellness. Occupational therapy practitioners facilitate clients’ abilities to adapt and organize their daily occupations or activities related to self-care, home management, community participation, education, work, and/ or leisure into daily routines to prevent and minimize dysfunction, promote and develop a healthy lifestyle, and facilitate adaptation and recovery from injury, disease, or developmental challenges.
What does that ACTUALLY mean to you? Well, maybe you are recovering from an illness and injury, and it is difficult to manage your daily tasks. Or maybe you are worried about falling on the ice or in your home and would like to understand some fall prevention strategies specific to your daily routine. Or maybe you would like to improve your sleep routine, but can’t figure out how. Or maybe you would like to lose some weight and have tried every diet, but nothing seems to be working. Or maybe you are experiencing chronic pain related to an activity that is meaningful to you but doesn’t know how to modify that activity to decrease your pain. These are all areas of occupations that can be adapted to improve your health and wellness.
