Self-Care in Healthcare: How Did we do in 2021?

As we move into 2022, the 3rd year of the pandemic, self-care and our mental health is becoming critically important. This past year COVID certainly continued to impact our small, woman-owned business on the home front.

So how did we do in 2021 with Self-Care in Healthcare?

Here’s our short story as Dr. Ginger Garner shares it – her self-care story for PT’s and OT’s and for anyone who values integrative therapies and self-care in PT an OT practice, and in healthcare in general!

But here’s how we navigated 2021, and we have some good news for you!

This winter brought no shortage of hurdles to clear as I navigated a second breast surgery and the subsequent fallout: lymphedema, new cording, cellulitis, and a really strange allergic reaction to sutures that caused funky adhesions and scar tissue throughout my chest wall.

However, I’m sharing that to get to the point: I *still* went snowboarding (for the first time in 20 years, yep, because my kiddos needed a supervisor on their first ski experience and I wasn’t gonna sit on the sidelines!), started horseback riding lessons (as soon as my wounds were ready for it), embraced my new lymphedema status (and lymphedema pump and compression garments), and somehow kept a balance between giving physical therapy and teaching integrative therapies and receiving intensive physical therapy for my recovery.

We’re only as strong as the adversities we’ve overcome.

The spring brought some outdoor fun, and our first family flight in YEARS plus our first flight since COVID hit. I continued to work on new projects, including launching The Snarky Psoas workshop, which is a huge hit!, and taking a whole week off to spend with family, a first since pre-COVID forced me to reinvent our entire continuing education program and the way I practice physical therapy.

I also did some filming for an upcoming Postpartum Yoga project, as well as continued to grab every second I could for nature nurture – because I feel my best and most productive when I’ve had a chance to get my dirt therapy outdoor time on each day.

When do you feel your best?

This summer was packed full of excitement, from 4 photo and film shoots (one for my son and the rest for work!), the release of another workshop, Three Thursdays, a 3 week Core Strength Series, and a whole rash of fun weekends, which included an actual unprecedented second week of vacation with my kiddos. There was a ton of hiking and outdoor adventures, and my body started to slowly feel like mine again. I began to venture out of compression garments, with good results, knowing to keep them nearby just in case there was a flare.

I also celebrated the print of the Italian translation of my book (see below), and had some necessary, new headshots done for the first time in 5 years. Wow, time flies.
