new year resolution

New Year’s resolutions to help you live well with Parkinson’s disease

For most people, New Year's Eve is the time to look ahead to the promises of the coming year, and reflect on the changes we want to make in our lives. Those of us living with Parkinson’s disease too often find ourselves on the sidelines, afraid to dream in the face of our uncertain future. This is unfair to ourselves and to those who care about us.
Each of us must find our own way to put fear, anger, and sadness behind us and get on with the business of living. Although life will never be the way we had planned in our pre-Parkinson’s days, “different” does not necessarily mean bad. More than 13 years into my own journey with Parkinson’s, I assure you that the daily choices we make will impact our quality of life down the road. I’ve chosen my 10 resolutions for 2012 with this in mind and I am sharing them here to inspire and motivate you to make your own resolutions to put yourself on the path to living well with our shared disease:
1. Make daily exercise a priority. Research reveals it is the one thing that may slow disease progression. It also improves overall health and makes us look and feel better.
2. Get more sleep. Sleeping less than 7 hours a night impairs our ability to concentrate, make decisions, and moderate our emotions. It also contributes to weight gain as well as “excessive daytime sleepiness” and “sleep attacks” that compromise safety behind the wheel and in the workplace.
3. Eat better. The foods we eat impact our fitness level and overall health.
4. Focus on what you can do, not what you can’t. I can do things now that I could not even dream of doing in my pre-Parkinson’s, like swimming half a mile at a time. Friends say I am in the best shape of my life except for the fact that I have PD. Yes, except for that!
5. Live in the moment. Do the best you can today and deal with tomorrow when it comes.
6. Don’t allow Parkinson’s to rob you of the good times still awaiting you. Since learning I had PD I have seen both my sons graduate from college and one from law school, danced at one son’s wedding, welcomed a wonderful daughter-in-law into our family, and seen both sons buy houses and host parties for friends and family. Had I given up from the start, look what I would have missed.
7. Take up a new hobby or learn something new.
8. Volunteer to help others and find new purpose for our lives. Each of us has a gift we can share to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
9. Remain an active participant in your healthcare, learning about clinical trials that may benefit you, regularly visiting the websites of the national Parkinson’s organizations to stay up on the latest Parkinson’s-related news, and attending symposia where I can learn from experts in the field.
10. Spend more time with family and friends, creating a support system that can provide outlets for expressing your feelings. Tending to our emotional health is as important as taking care of our physical health.

If your current mental or physical state is not what you desire, now is the time to change course and alter your destiny. The choice is yours.

A Guide to minimize personal discomfort of moving
Humans are emotional creatures. No matter how strong we portray ourselves to be, we always end up in a puddle of tears, when we are forced to leave behind something or someone who happened to be very close. However, as life would have it, often due to academic or professional commitments we are forced to leave a familiar town, city, country and at times even the continent.

There is nothing wrong about feeling homesick. From Hollywood actors to dare devil sportspeople, everyone at some point of time has suffered from this problem. So next time when you feel like crying when you come across something that reminds you of Mumbai don’t blame yourself for it, instead learn to deal with it.
Here are some tips that shall help you to get ready for a new life in a new city.
Accept All Type of Invitation
Once your movers and packers from Mumbai delivers your goods to your new home, do not shut your door and remain isolated. Instead make an effort to know your neighbors. Accept all kind of invitations that you come across. Join a new club or indulge in a new hobby and soon you shall make new friends. If you have small kids, the support system at their school can be very helpful.
Do Not Visit Your Old Home Too Soon
Homesickness kicks in a few weeks or months after you have settled in your new place. Once the initial business of settling down is over, theadreline high of moving to a new place wears off. That is when things start to get gloomy. Do not give into your desire of visiting your old place too soon. Instead focus on your new home. If you happen to miss your extended family and friends you can ask them to come and spend some time with you.
Stay Busy
Staying busy perhaps is the best medicine for almost all types of emotional problem. Understand the fact that you have to function in your new environment and feeling depressed would only add to your problems. Focus your attention on your work and make use of modern age technology to like Skype to stay connected with your friends. Spend time in cooking your local delicacy, once your packers and movers from Mumbai deliver all the kitchen supplies.
Feeling down is a common symptom after moving to a new space. Give yourself some time and develop a support system. Gradually as your heart settles in the new place, you shall discover that you have created a new home in a new city that once used to be a foreign place.
