@clissa89 @Trio33 thanks for popping in πŸ™‚ drive safe! not done writing for restoration recently! #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:02:08 +0100)
@Trio33 Hello and gooodbye from me sorry can’t #occhat tonight(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:02:18 +0100)
@clissa89 @mommagilly hey there & welcome! have you been to #occhat / #OTalk before? i’ve not been for a while :)(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:03:59 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Good evening #occhat just got home, so making coffee while we start. Bust day… in need of some restorative activities!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:05:54 +0100)
@kirstyes Evening #occhat needed to do some IT stuff today so not too restorative. Feeling tired now so will take it slowly tonight.(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:06:24 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @Helen_otuk @mommagilly i’m willing to bet we’re all pretty tired tonight, im all for taking it slowly! πŸ™‚ #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:06:57 +0100)
@kirstyes One restorative activity rather than occ I’m rubbish at is drinking enough. Let my tea go cold earlier. #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:07:46 +0100)
@clissa89 Which occupations do you engage in to give you energy? #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:08:13 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes I’m also v bad at drinking enough. *must work on this* But I eat plenty!! #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:08:54 +0100)
@clissa89 Been having stressful day today, so took a few minutes out to go into garden and look at/smell some lovely red flowers #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:09:53 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @clissa89 @kirstyes @Helen_otuk @mommagilly I’m engaged in a restorative #occhat in bed, pot of tea and a movie in the background! bliss(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:09:54 +0100)
@DrieCulturen @clissa89 You know what gives you lots of energy is being #creative in what ever you do. I enjoy writing & teaching: gives me enery #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:06 +0100)
@clissa89 @DebbiiHarrison restorative occupations are those that give energy. e.g. eating/drinking, self care, quiet focus activities #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:17 +0100)
@LeonoraOT #occhat Hi, I’m up early so here but more lurking than participating I suspect #Australia #restorative #puylentils πŸ˜‰ #humour =restorative(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @DebbiiHarrison for me, how restorative an occupation is depends on how much i’m focusing my attention on the experience #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:42 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Sleeping is an important one for me and another I’ve been neglecting. Had good 10hrs last night though. #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:44 +0100)
@TheSoapDragon #OTalk / #Occhat hi all I am new to this and have flu so feeling pretty gruesome but wanted to take part so am sitting & reading if that’s ok(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:10:50 +0100)
@clissa89 @LeonoraOT glad you can join us, as always πŸ™‚ #occhat #Australia #restorative (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:11:03 +0100)

@kirstyes @gilliancrossley what movie? #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:11:09 +0100)
@clissa89 @TheSoapDragon welcome! sitting & reading is totally okay! πŸ™‚ glad you’re here #Occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:11:38 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly Actually watching cheesy films I’ve seen lots of times before works for me #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:11:45 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @mommagilly : I like walking but have not had the energy or opportunity lately.on placement in the week and pooped at the weekend.(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:12:00 +0100)
@pd2ot Evening everyone #occhat Sorry I’m late, just packing up my bag ready for an early start tomorrow.(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:12:05 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes the bodyguard! so also getting my whitney on! #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:12:12 +0100)
@clissa89 @mommagilly walking is restorative for me too if i pay attention to nature and my senses πŸ™‚ but i’ve not done it recently either #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:12:33 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 @debbiiharrison Are you using the Doris Pierce def Clarissa or another? #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:12:36 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes haha think that’s the influence of Pierce! don’t know of another…? #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:13:08 +0100)
@kirstyes @TheSoapDragon Welcome. I’m poorly too. Hence choice of topic ;0) #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:13:17 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes #occhat Sleep is one I struggle with, I know I need to improve it as it’s never restorative, often more anxiety provoking!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:13:35 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes agree, sleep very important. lots of people struggle with this #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:13:46 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @DebbiiHarrison : @gilliancrossley @clissa89 I’m getting it now – good stuff especially enjoying nature, trees, flowers, mountains(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:14:13 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat yes!! RT @gilliancrossley : @kirstyes @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly yes! me too! grease!! Dirty dancing, the goonies, and so on!!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:14:31 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot Ffor me the actual sleep is PK but it’s a case of trying to fit just one more thing in? #occhat
Is the thinking part anxiety inducing(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:15:05 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes @TheSoapDragon #occhat I hope you both improve soon!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:15:28 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Have to agree, my dog walks are great… in the woods, on the beach… even just at the local field. Love it! #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:15:30 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot sleep so stressful if i’m struggling with it! i need my 8 hrs bt often feel i “should” be doing something better with my time #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:15:35 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life #occhat Hey my lovely OTs… Exercise is my restorative occupation… #everydayificould (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:15:40 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @clissa89 Sleep! ahh that would be so great! #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:15:59 +0100)
@kirstyes Anyone else find organising/spring cleaning restorative. I’m hoping to find the energy to do some during my time off #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:16:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @Symbolic_Life thats v interesting as exercise uses energy, but i feel that too! feel so energised after even if worn out #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:16:22 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes yes!! organising/spring cleaning restorative _if_ i have enough time to do it at a relaxed pace, listening to music #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:17:15 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes organising can be… clean no! #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:17:30 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @clissa89 @kirstyes @helen_otuk @mommagilly #occhat do restorative occupations have to have any other purpose or is just restoration enough?(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:17:52 +0100)
@DebbiiHarrison @Helen_otuk I think that gentle activity is more relaxing than relaxation exercises which just wind me up #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:17:58 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life @clissa89 endorphins are realised..and feeling part of a social team promotes worth because you are the missing link in success.. #Occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:18:16 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes #occhat Often organising/cleaning leads onto good productive uni work, once my environment is sorted!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:18:27 +0100)
@clissa89 @gilliancrossley my favourite occupations are those that are restorative + productive + pleasurable, but sleep only R & i love it #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:18:35 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @clissa89 @kirstyes #occhat I feel organizing is restorative! I felt great after doing a to do list this morning!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:19:05 +0100)
@clissa89 @DebbiiHarrison @Helen_otuk I agree, never been very successful with relaxation! Yoga leaves me feeling extremely restored #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:19:18 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life #occhat I think restorative occupations also promote mindfulness because its something you take time for you?(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:19:28 +0100)
@gilliancrossley #occhat shopping…………….. nuf said(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:19:36 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly I think rest should be enough but in our soc we often feel need to be prod #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:19:42 +0100)
@OT_Expert @clissa89 @pd2ot #occhat i agree. there are many things I tell myself are more important than sleep,but it’s not true! Sleep is SO important(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:19:42 +0100)
@clissa89 RT @Symbolic_Life : #occhat I think restorative occupations also promote #mindfulness because its something you take time for you?(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:19:49 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly I know lots of my friends who are mums feel guilty for taking ‘me’ time. #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:20:13 +0100)
@clissa89 @Symbolic_Life i benefit most from my restorative occupations when im being mindful/aware πŸ™‚ #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:20:27 +0100)
@pd2ot @OT_Expert @clissa89 @kirstyes #occhat it’s not so much that I’d rather not spend time asleep, just that my actual sleep is very disrupted(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:20:45 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot isn’t that called procrastinating;0) #occhat (says the person who only really cleans when something else needs doing).(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:21:00 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly my occupation all cross boundaries… I think sleep is the only one purely restorative #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:21:10 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @gilliancrossley @helen_otuk @mommagilly if we need rest – physiologically, mentally – why do we feel guilty doing it? #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:21:12 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I do not feel guilty if I have me time, but often have competing demands. #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:21:14 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes #occhat Totally, but have learned that I wont settle to work until I’ve ‘allowed’ myself some procrastination time!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:21:57 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot must be very difficult if sleep is challenging – such an important source of energy #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:22:05 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @kirstyes teehee im the same… cleaned my desk this morning! and yesterday… #messyworker #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:22:26 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes @clissa89 @helen_otuk @mommagilly #occhat me time is weird for me and is usually combined with something else…(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:22:42 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Maybe that is why I find my dog walks so essential, not only a need from the dog, but I enjoy and can enjoy my surroundings #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:23:01 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @DebbiiHarrison : being productive and getting a sense of achievement is restorative but cleaning my house is never ending!(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:23:07 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life #occhat without me time and sleeping it may promote fatigue resulting in loss of efficiency? Social expectation may effect this! #CFS ?(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:23:17 +0100)

@Symbolic_Life @clissa89 I think most do.i also think people are unaware of mindfulness and the sense of occupation may promote it unconsciously. #Occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:27:48 +0100)

@gilliancrossley @clissa8 @kirstyes #occhat the ability to engage in restorative occupations must be linked to lifestyle, personality, norms etc(Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:28:23 +0100)
@clissa89 I felt most restored before I started uni – Body Balance (yoga/tai chi/pilates) 3x weekly, regular walks, scrapbooking, reading #occhat (Tue, 31 Jul 2012 20:28:24 +0100)
