So, how do we manage all of this without putting our health an well-being on the sidelines? Precision Chi’s services offers a solution!
A Behavior Analyst Needs Self-Care
The quest began almost a decade ago when a behavior analyst (that’s me, Janet Vasquez) was in dire need of self-care. After working in the field of applied behavior analysis for approximately 10 years, I saw a need for more companies that had a razor focus on quality and ethics, so me and my partner decided to come together to start a clinical company. As someone who enjoys building systems, this seemed like a perfect fit. The business grew quickly, and before we knew it, we had several employees and were operating in several states. The larger we grew the longer hours I worked, and the more I worked the more my health started to suffer. It was during this time that I started to search for a solution, and that’s when I found yoga. One could say it was love at first asana!
Initially, I was drawn to the physicality of the practice but quickly learned that it is much more than just physical movement—it is a moving meditation in which you learn how to focus on the breathe (i.e., an energy source for the body) and coordinate it with movement. With continued practice of this synergy between breathe and movement, the magic of generalization began to occur. I started to notice that I would use the breathe during stressful situations in my professional and personal life. I also noticed that I was less reactionary to stressful situations. My breathe would enable me to slow physiological responses that are indicative of “flight or fight” responses, which in turn, enabled me to evaluate the situation with much more clarity and respond appropriately. Due to this, I was able to make better decisions that had a positive impact on personal and professional life. I became a better leader, mentor and business owner by putting my self-care at the forefront of my life. From that moment forward, I made a commitment to always make time for my health and well-being.
As a result of the powerful impact self-care strategies have had on my life, I am on a mission to empower others with robust behavior analysis techniques that will get their self-care behavior back on track, so that they can reach their goals and move those professional mountains while maintaining their health and well-being.
