Nonie Carr - Enhance Life Psychology

What is BLS??
BLS is short for Bilateral Stimulation. This is when you stimulate the 2 hemispheres of your brain alternately. BLS is what is used during EMDR to assist reprocessing of memories. Usually EMDR uses the rapid movement of a stimuli from side to side that the client/participant follows with their eyes without moving their head or body. But, it’s also possible to do BLS by quickly tapping alternate feet, or hands on the knees, or hands on the shoulders. It’s also possible to use electronic tappers or buzzers that automatically stimulate alternate sides of your body or hands. Tones that sound in alternate ears can also be used.

BLS is has been suggested to work in a similar way to Rapid Eye Movement (REM) that we experience while we sleep. During REM sleep we sort, process and store information. Often this is when we also dream.

Nonie Carr - Enhance Life Psychology

So with the most recent cases in northern Melbourne we're back to masks indoors. The requirement to wear masks indoors starts at 6pm tonight and ends on June 4. I'll be continuing to wear a mask in session with clients and will be asking clients to also wear a mask until restrictions ease.
Let's work together to support each other and reduce the spread of CoVID-19.

Early mornings…
I woke up restless at 5:30 this morning. So I rugged up and went for a walk along the beach. While walking I listened to an interview of Prof Zindel Segel by Elise Bialylew (part of the 2021 Mindful in May). They spoke about mindfulness meditation and how it an be an effective treatment for moderate depression. They defined mindfulness meditation as really being present in the moment, noticing sensations and experiences, and being accepting of, present with and curious about even unpleasant sensations and thoughts. This is hard. They noted that when we are feeling depressed we tend to be less aware of physical sensations and experiences and get very caught up in our heads. Mindfulness meditation can help us shift our focus and this can be helpful.

What do you do on a beautiful day if you’ve got a few spare hours??
Today I had lunch and then went out for a short cycle in the sun! Even though I was only able to ride for 30 minutes it was totally worth it… the warmth from the sun, the energy hit, the feel good factor, the mood boost… oh and cycling on new hotmix road surface is such a pleasure (if you cycle you’ll know all about this)!!

Lockdown extended… 😕

We knew it was coming. But it still sucks.

This particular virus variant seems to have an R0 or almost 4; this means that unchecked every individual would infect almost 4 other people. Last year the virus circulating in Melbourne had an R0 of less than to 2.

There is a change to the restrictions and they are different for rural Victoria and Melbourne. Restrictions and rules can be found here: https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/victorias-restriction-levels-covid-19

This sucks for business. But maybe you could spend money locally, while staying safe, and thereby support local businesses. I hope that some hospitality venues who have closed completely decide to offer takeaway again… it’s sad to see them closed up like this when only 10 days ago they were full of people enjoying great company, delicious food and fabulous service.

I will be continuing to offer telehealth to all clients until further notice. When I do return to face-to-face consultations will masks continue to be required, unless exemptions apply.

Stunning late Autumn weather means getting out for some exercise within my 5km radius. Cycling always has a good impact on how I feel.
What have you done today to boost your mood today?

This is going to be so hard after our experiences in 2020. I know… I’ve been there too. It sucks.

BUT… we know how to do this because we have been there before.

Supermarkets, butchers, fruit & veg stores & pharmacies remain open… no need to panic buy.

You CAN get a coffee at your favourite cafe, but it’s a takeaway.

You can get a takeaway meal.

You can do exercise.

You can provide care to those you need to.

Talk to your friends & family. Check-in with those who might not be doing ok with this. If you’re one who’s struggling ask for help, call a friend or family member.

Slow down and be present in the moment. Remember those new skills you learnt last year? Time to practice again!

Look after yourself. We’ve got this Melbourne. 💙

Did you catch the super moon last night? What about this morning?
I managed to drag myself out of my warm bed for a bike ride with the bunch. It was a still clear morning but very cold.
There’s something quite energizing rolling along in the dark with glimpses of the full moon reflecting on the Bay on fresh morning. Then I spotted this view as we got close to the cafe… I had to stop and appreciate the colours.
After starting my day in this I found I felt good, was more motivated, and had greater focus. I notice that I tend to have a more productive day when I’ve started with exercise… walking, cycling or strength training.
