However, also in March, I was contacted by a consulting firm to start working again from home. I am a mainframe computer programmer and I did this job for over 30 years.
And then in May I started working. I was pleased to find that my long-term memory was intact and I remember a lot of the things that I used to do with the software I used to work on. This lasted about three months from May to July. Then I discovered I could not keep up with the hectic pace of working 8 to 10 hours per day. This did allow me to make a little bit of extra money and help pay for my new hearing aids! I am also slowly going deaf.
August, September, October, were slow months for me not doing much rehab work. Again shame on me. But when November rolled around I was ready to start working again especially after starting this blog. I thought that since I was trying to help people exercise and get better I might as well do my exercises and get better myself. So from approximately November 15 when I opened up this blog I have been doing my exercises every day and now I feel much better.
Somewhere in the period from August to November I read something that said if you do something 21 days in a row it becomes a habit and I can attest to that because now I'm in the habit of doing my rehab exercises and I feel bad when I don't do them. So try to do those exercises 21 days in a row and see if you can develop a habit. You won't exactly be jumping for joy about doing your exercises but you will have the strength to do them.
So in closing I would like to say that I want 2015 to be a very productive year. As a matter of fact I signed up for more rehab and I will start in January on a new rehab program.
I hope you all have a very happy and productive new year! Remember try to get in the habit of doing your rehab exercises and in time you will get better don't forget that.
