Happier at Work: 3 Mental Habits for Better Work Life

This month, we're going to be doing a series on 'Happier at Work.' Our rates of stress and burnout are high. If we want long, productive careers where we help the most people we have to be taking care of ourselves!

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


In this 'sode we go through 3 mental habits Nicole has used to practice for nearly 20 years and that we try and cultivate in our team at PelvicSanity.

  1. First is being ready to receive your patient. If you're rushing into work at the last minute you can feel behind, rushed or frenetic all day. That's extra stress and it means you aren't providing the best possible care for your people. We recommend arriving at least 10 minutes before your first patient, getting settled in, taking time to review your caseload and feel settled yourself so you can receive your patient.

  2. Next is a reset ritual. This is a way to mentally reset between patients. You can leave the last session behind, refocus, and be ready to meet the challenges of your next patient. We find this skill to be critical in pelvic health when we deal with such a wide variety of patients.

  3. Finally, count your wins! We start every staff meeting at PelvicSanity by having each team member go through their wins. As humans, we bias towards negativity. Many of us are (hopefully recovering) perfectionists. We dwell on the person who flared, or who got frustrated, or who isn't improving as quickly as we wanted. Instead of focusing on all of the success stories, people we've helped or positive outcomes. So ask yourself at the end of the day - 'what were the wins'? When you start looking for the positive, you'll find it!

As Nicole said on the full 'sode of the topic...
