On December 13, 2018 many local area high school students attended the Future Makers Coalition Dream Summit in Fort Myers, Florida. When it was my turn to present, I shared the I Matter Meditative Movement™. For many of us, we were never told that we mattered. While it is great to have someone else tell us we matter, it is imperative that we acknowledge this for ourselves.
We invite you to give it a try. Read the entire You Matter. You Matter. You Matter, Matter, Matter! blog.
The University of Minnesota Occupational Therapy Department feasibility research study concluded that Meditative Movements™ may be effective in reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue, while improving emotional and functional well-being for persons with chronic health conditions. The findings suggest that Meditative Movements™ may be used as an alternative and complementary therapy or rehabilitation program for persons with chronic health conditions.
Chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.
The prevention and management of chronic health conditions is a major challenge for the current health care system. There is growing evidence that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) have beneficial effects for managing the many symptoms of chronic health conditions. Use of CAM to improve health and well-being has increased over the years (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2007). American adults are most likely to use CAM for problems such as stress, fatigue, and pain.
When asked what was most beneficial, research participants responded.
|More calm||Better sleep||Feel more positive about self||Less negative attitude||More confidence||Less tired, more energy|
