How Gratitude Will Shift Your Relationships

When was the last time you received genuine appreciation or gratitude from your boss or your partner?  If you had to furrow your brows, take a few breaths and try to remember...you are not alone. We all have been there.  

When I left my traditional medical job in Arizona 18 months ago, the CEO of the hospital thanked me for all the work I had done for patients with epilepsy including the children.  I began to cry, and the CEO started to shift in his seat uncomfortably and search for a tissue box.  I expressed to him that in over ten years in the traditional medical system, I had never had a boss, supervisor, or hospital administration express gratitude.  They were tears of joy as much as tears of shock.

When I work with corporate clients or clients in my clinic who cite job-related stress as their biggest problem, I hear the same story.  They often state that they would forgo a pay raise or bonus during troubled economic times in lieu of simple and genuine gratitude.

Is There Science Behind Our Intuition?

How would a left-brained doctor define intuition? I hear this question often after people watch my TEDx talk discussing connecting to the inner soul compass, or our intuitive self. Intuition is defined as knowledge or wisdom that inherently is present in a person without the use of reasoning, analysis or judgement.

A modern day psychology theory discussed by Malcolm Gladwell in his book, Blink, modern day psychology defines intuition to encompass the ability to know valid solutions to problems and quick decision-making skills based on experience.  

Why is being in tune with our intuitive selves so important, especially in modern times? In today’s society, it is critical to return to our intuition because we are surrounded by distractions that can mask our inner wisdom. Examples of these distractions are social media, the internet, smartphones, and chronic sleep deprivation.  When we are not in touch with our intuition, we are often led down a path in life we would not have chosen for ourselves in our careers, matters of health and relationships.

Mindful Mantra: Disconnect To Reconnect with Digital Detox
Written by Dr. Romie on Aug 18, 2014

This week, let our mindful mantra be: “Digital Detox: Disconnect to Reconnect.”

Do you find yourself checking your smartphone at least once an hour for Facebook newsfeed updates or your emails?  Are you falling asleep on the sofa at night with the television on and your iPad as a pillow?

The New Year felt peaceful when I disconnected from electronic devices for 48 hours for quiet meditation. One of my new year’s resolutions was to spend more time connecting within and less time tweeting, emailing and texting. Don’t those New Year’s resolutions seem so far away? 

We got a reminder to “unplug” in March when Sabbath Manifesto started a movement called “National Day of Unplugging.”  It got the attention of national media, thousands of people pledged to join, and yet here we are.

Believe me I am not against our digital devices, social media, or getting work done. As a physician promoting health and wellness, I am more concerned about the complaints I hear from clients daily.

 “I have no time to work out.”

 “I wish I had 20 minutes in the morning to try meditation.”
