|Day 9: #MostFun - a year ago I was mid way through an|
awesome trip to Australia.

in people and find out what makes them happy & gives them
meaning, and help them to be able to continue or access those things
|Day 11: #nature - One of my favourite occupations is to |
go for a good walk when its sunny.

places and things. Too many to fit :) They keep me focused
and happy and are there in the good and the bad times.

of occupational therapy and develop as a professional.
|Day 14: #Adapt - I can adapt to make it easier for me |
to read my lecture slides and notes by using coloured
overlays and paper
|Day 15: #Mindful - As OTs we are holistic thinkers, we look |
at where an individual is in their journey and importantly
we are mindful of what got them to this point and
where THEY want to go :)
|Day 16: #Friends|
|Day 18: #inspired - OT can change the world, one activity at a time.|
|Day 19: #unique - i love having the privilege to get to know what |
makes each person unique! As an OT remembering the
importance of what makes each person who they are is key!
|Day 20: #meaning to me :). As OTs finding out and understanding peoples |
cultures, beliefs, values and what makes the stuff we do
meaningful to them = meaning makes activities turn into occupations...

|Day 22: #ican master activity analysis in practice.|
|Day 24: #habit - OT will focus on what's important to you, including what you like to do day to day. Its may look to |
see if there is a way to #adapt those activities to accommodate for illness or injury so you can still engage in what you enjoy.
|Day 25: #play - #OccupationalTherapy will use the things you enjoy as a way to help you therapeutically. |
This may be through games, art, music, drama - the list is endless!
Occupation is key to helping someone engage,
