Transformational leadership #OTalk 28/5/13: Background and reading

Elaine Hunter (@ElaineAMPH) has written a great blog explaining the background to her preparation before delivering this year’s Casson keynote lecture at Conference in Glasgow (#COT13)

Tonight, we are happy to be involving our #OTalk community in reflecting on the themes of her keynote. She will be asking the participants of #Otalk:

  • what does “good leadership” in occupational therapy look like?

  • how do we build leadership (confidence) capacity and capability in occupational therapy?

  • what can social media offer leaders in occupational therapy?

Perhaps you might like to join us in reflection about our own leadership behaviours, whatever our job role involves.

  • What does our work culture have to provide to facilitate our leadership development?
  • Is there a common experience of OT leadership across sectors?
  • Are OTs too “nice” to be effective leaders?
  • How can social media help us to develop leadership behaviours?

Remember: you’re a role model and digital leader in the OT profession already, because you are reading this online!

See you there at 8-9pm GMT, using the #OTalk tag.

You can continue to add contributions by using the tag for 24 hours after the chat.

@GillyGorry RT @kirstyes : Main issue for me is saying yes when have the time/motivation/energy then one or more of them disappearing #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:16:43 +0100)
@Georgia_Fair I think gender is a factor too. Women prioritise looking after others before themselves if not enough time for all #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:16:51 +0100)
@kirstyes @Symbolic_Life odd – where does this term come from? #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:17:11 +0100)
@GillyGorry @kirstyes I hear ya on that one! This is why volition has been a question for me.. desire to do things make me overloaded #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:17:25 +0100)

@BillWongOT @GillyGorry @OTsinlondon Yes… but for me, it’s so blurry because what I am doing are #OT related things pretty much. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:18:41 +0100)
@GillyGorry @DiverseOT I offer advice on this but never preach and I don’t expect it to be achievable 100% of the time. good to aim for though #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:19:01 +0100)
@Maria_Markland @GillyGorry @BillWongOT @OTsinlondon #occhat Yes, priorities are acceptable. Is it pressure in letting others down that creates overload?(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:19:07 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat @Maria_Markland @DoBeDoBeDo14 Wow. Is that just for one life area or all of them? #occhat Was advised recently on colour coding.(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:19:38 +0100)

@Maria_Markland @GillyGorry @BillWongOT @OTsinlondon Wonder if OT’s feel more overloaded because of the passion they have for occupational balance? #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:26:42 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DoBeDoBeDo14 @OTalk_Occhat @Maria_Markland or sometimes enfolding occupations. I view mentoring OT students fun, for example. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:26:59 +0100)

@Wardmans @GillyGorry on the other hand i don’t get that much overload. usually stop before it gets too bad. #occhat #quickrecovery (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:41:15 +0100)
@GillyGorry RT @Nnikki_Duffy : I think for me I get overloaded because I have to do everything to the best of my ability. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:41:16 +0100)
@DoBeDoBeDo14 @BillWongOT @Maria_Markland @DiverseOT #occhat Can be difficult to say no, especially if it’s something you think is important(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:41:20 +0100)

@GillyGorry RT @Maria_Markland : @DiverseOT #occhat Me too! Since I’ve started this Masters I’ve become more stressed about keeping an occ balance! 🙂 Good/bad thing?(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:41:40 +0100)
@DiverseOT @kirstyes Yes @ 1 of busiest but best times in my life I made decisions easily by asking myself: Is this in line with my priorities? #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:41:42 +0100)
@Georgia_Fair @OTsinlondon @GillyGorry So does it depend on activity chosen during leisure time? #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:41:50 +0100)
@zzzoooman #occhat . Question. Is it better to do 10 jobs excellently or 20 good? What happens to the other 10 if you say No?(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:42:02 +0100)

@Nnikki_Duffy @Maria_Markland I think awareness usually means I trade in my head outcomes / consequences. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:42:20 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DoBeDoBeDo14 @Maria_Markland @DiverseOT yes… for me this year, for example, I took on being the OTD rep for my class. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:42:20 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DoBeDoBeDo14 @Maria_Markland @DiverseOT another example is that I took on being professionalism mentors to 3 OT students. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:42:46 +0100)
@Maria_Markland @Wardmans @GillyGorryLeisure overload seems to be overlooked cause it’s what you want to do rather than what you feel you have to do #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:42:58 +0100)
@Wardmans @ot_saz the fun about that is you don’t really think about what you type. I always over think stuff the day after. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:43:00 +0100)
@GillyGorry @Georgia_Fair @OTsinlondon maybe. I think balance is a personal thing and therefor so is overload #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:43:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Georgia_Fair @OTsinlondon @GillyGorry good question… I want to know too. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:43:37 +0100)
@GillyGorry What do you do to overcome or manage occupational overload? #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:43:41 +0100)
@Georgia_Fair @kirstyes @GillyGorry Claiming back personal time would be a step towards occ balance #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:44:12 +0100)
@OTsinlondon @BillWongOT @ajciliaOT Perhaps! time management is a constant issue! Everything takes longer than expected! 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:44:12 +0100)

@Maria_Markland @Nnikki_Duffy Yes, maybe it therefore helps you in prioritizing and reduces occ overload #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:45:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTsinlondon @ajciliaOT or that sometimes we take on the hardest occupations first instead of the easiest. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:45:16 +0100)
@LindaOTUK #occhat difficult to cope with being “good enough”(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:45:22 +0100)

@OTsinlondon @kirstyes @GillyGorry Lists and pomodoros yes! especially on overload days when you need and extra prompt to keep you focused! #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:47:30 +0100)
@GillyGorry @DebLants interesting. I also sleep less as away of coping. this makes me feel more balanced. and gives me awake me time #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:47:31 +0100)
@BillWongOT @LindaOTUK when I was a student, I was worried about being “good enough”. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:47:34 +0100)

@Maria_Markland @BillWongOT @DoBeDoBeDo14 @DiverseOT That’s great (being rep) Do you think some ‘extra’ things are ‘worth’ occupational overload?! #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:47:48 +0100)
@Georgia_Fair @kirstyes For people with LD receiving paid support, self care is prioritised over leisure #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:48:01 +0100)

@kirstyes @OTsinlondon @GillyGorry It really does help with focus and identifying how long it takes to do things – I should do more often #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:49:54 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Maria_Markland @DoBeDoBeDo14 @DiverseOT I also enjoyed this role because I brought experience & #OT knowledge to table #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:49:55 +0100)

@kirstyes @Georgia_Fair this is very true -self care prioritised by health and social care services but by the sounds of it not by most of us! #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:50:53 +0100)
@Maria_Markland @OTsinlondon @kirstyes #occhat Interesting to differentiate between want+need. I wonder if that combined with time management= the answer!(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:50:54 +0100)
@jfaias MoHO talks on personal causation as one’ sense of capacity & effectiveness. Wonder if it has influence on one letting get overloaded #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:51:28 +0100)

@GillyGorry So now when have discussed more. Do we have a clearer definition of Occupational overload? #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:51:37 +0100)

@BillWongOT @OTsinlondon @kirstyes but within the wants, we also have to categorize it, and sometimes they can overlap. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:54:00 +0100)
@kirstyes @BillWongOT @Maria_Markland @OTsinlondon plus it would be about who defines need #occhat I might need to read,someone else say that’s a want(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:54:47 +0100)
@Wardmans @Maria_Markland it ponders the question if it is still overload when you chose it to be. Can one choose overload. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 20:54:49 +0100)
@Maria_Markland @BillWongOT @kirstyes #occhat Depends what the individual classes as ‘needs.’ Not prioritising my ‘wants’ causes me occ overload(Tue, 21 May 2013 20:55:10 +0100)

@BillWongOT @zzzoooman @GillyGorry agreed! #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 21:19:00 +0100)
@OTtrees #occhat Unfortunately large organisations encourage occupational overload with unrealistic expectations. Difficult to fight.(Tue, 21 May 2013 21:25:45 +0100)
@Maria_Markland @kirstyes @Georgia_Fair Ha ha!! I know! 🙂 I think awareness often assists recognition and therefore frequency in ‘overload’ though. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 21:27:41 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTtrees That’s when having a good support network is important- from social emotional support, to hang out buddies. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 21:28:39 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Maria_Markland @kirstyes @Georgia_Fair yes that can. I become more selective of occupations if I already am overloaded. #occhat (Tue, 21 May 2013 21:29:49 +0100)

#Occhat 21/05/2013: Occupational Overload

Tonights #Occhat will be discussing Occupational Overload.

Occupational Therapist believe that there is a strong link between occupation and health and well-being, so what happens what occupational overload occurs?

How do we define occupational overload?

How does occupational overload impact on our occupational performance and participation? On our roles, relationships, habits? on our self care, productivity and leisure?

How can we manage occupational overload?

Is it always a negative?

How does volition influence how we become or overcome occupational overload?

I hope this will be an interesting discussion

 

 

Grabchat – Mentor – Mentee Relationships – 14th May 2013

Here’s the grabchat from last week’s #OTalk hosted by the newly graduated Dr Bill Wong – well done on your OTD Bill.

Thanks to those who participated, especially our new joiners.

I’ve left a few tweets from later in the week on here – one of the links below was by #slpchat about the pros and cons of livetweeting – might be worth a look.

@suzywd #otalk right im getting there, mentors tonight(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:23:22 +0100)
@BespokeRelax @Flawson12 I agree having students is great to get you thinking about evidence base and clinical reasoning & realise the value of OT #OTalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:24:04 +0100)

@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @OTalk_Occhat that’s a great point! I think this kinda thing goes both ways. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:24:17 +0100)
@DebLants @BespokeRelax #otalk that’s really good! I think each person works differently and it’s the job of the mentor to find out how they work best(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:24:20 +0100)
@kirstyes I like my current mentoring around my PhD – they help me with something and then I share my Social Media knowledge – it’s too way #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:24:40 +0100)

@suzywd #otalk im quite new to mentoring but have had a total of 4 students so far(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:25:30 +0100)
@BillWongOT @OTalk_Occhat My bad experience sometimes is if the mentor is not clear with what she says and/or fails to provide me structure. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:25:36 +0100)
@kirstyes @DebLants @BespokeRelax Also role of mentee to have some awareness of this and communicate it too. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:25:48 +0100)
@JeSuisLucie I found mentors that are willing to take on board your style of learning/working and be flexible is something that works for me #OTalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:25:50 +0100)

@BespokeRelax Having an OT student recently helped me to think creatively/outside the box &work collaboratively on new projects. Great experience #OTalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:25:56 +0100)
@saltyJessCKar I think it is important to be pushed, but you need to know that there is a strong safety net there to catch you if you fall #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:26:00 +0100)

@BillWongOT @DebLants delivering constructive criticism is important… sometimes it’s hard to deliver when you are so close to your mentee. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:26:52 +0100)

@OTalk_Occhat @DebLants Hi, welcome to #otalk this evening(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:27:12 +0100)
@saltyJessCKar Supervising is a balancing act between letting people spread their wings but encouraging them to fly in the right direction #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:27:52 +0100)
@BespokeRelax @kirstyes @DebLants It is really helpful if the mentee is able to provide you feedback on your mentoring skills as well #Otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:27:54 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat @saltyJessCKar Hi Jess. Yes being allowed not to be perfect and still respected is important. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:28:01 +0100)
@suzywd #otalk i started having 2 students a time, it has worked well so far, they support each other too(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:28:18 +0100)
@DebLants @BillWongOT #otalk True. So I suppose it is also important for the mentee to explain what they really want from the meetings(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:28:26 +0100)
@Flawson12 @saltyJessCKar @BillWongOT that’s a really valid point #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:28:38 +0100)
@BillWongOT I read about pushing a lot… what would you do if you feel you are pushed too much/pushed your mentee too hard? #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:28:43 +0100)

@Symbolic_Life Students provide the third wave of knowlege.. They bring the new theoretical concepts of the continuously progressing OT profession #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:29:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @DebLants absolutely! Conversely, mentor can provide some guidance if mentee is not sure. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:29:43 +0100)
@saltyJessCKar Hi all! Thanks for letting me gatecrash again! #ahp #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:29:47 +0100)
@BespokeRelax @DebLants @BillWongOT It can be really helpful to make a contract between mentor&mentee so purpose and boundaries of mtgs are clear #Otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:29:48 +0100)

@DebLants @BillWongOT #otalk if you are being pushed too much you need to have the confidence to say it(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:30:05 +0100)
@Flawson12 hopefully you d have a mentor/mentee relationship that would allow a discussion about this.. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:30:15 +0100)
@BespokeRelax @BillWongOT it is important for mentees to say when being pushed too hard but mentors need to look out for signs of this as well #Otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:30:49 +0100)
@kirstyes . @suzywd Yes mentorship can be with someone at the same level as you – doesn’t have to be that much more experienced. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:30:51 +0100)

@DebLants @BespokeRelax @BillWongOT #otalk definitely. Just being careful that it is not too formal so no one is nervous to be honest(Tue, 14 May 2013 20:31:17 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BespokeRelax @DebLants I agree. In placements, there sometimes is sort of an “unwritten contract” in place. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:31:45 +0100)
@Symbolic_Life I work better being pushed just highlight to me why you are pushing me and the benefits.. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:31:47 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat @saltyJessCKar no such thing as gate crashing. More the merrier. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:31:51 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BespokeRelax @DebLants but in other aspects, I think it will be good if mentor & mentee can agree on an agenda. #otalk (Tue, 14 May 2013 20:32:03 +0100)

#OTalk – 14th May – Mentor-Mentee Relationships

Our #OTalk on 14th May will be hosted by Bill Wong on Mentor-Mentee Relationships (Thanks Bill)

Each of us have personal experiences as mentees during our journeys to become OT practitioners, and continue to do so whenever we enter practice settings/or encounter experiences that we may be inexperienced in as occupational therapists.  However, we also must realize that we have something to give back to the OT community, even if some of us are “just students”.  Mentoring others (including peers) can be a satisfying and fulfilling experience for both the mentor and mentee.  Moreover, mentoring others is a great way to help the OT profession grow.  In order for the mentor-mentee relationship to achieve the maximum benefit for both parties, the mentee also has to contribute something to the mentor-mentee relationship.  This OTalk will explore the following:

1. Discuss why mentoring is important in OT.

2. Identify the qualities of a good mentor.

3. Identify the qualities of a good mentee.

4. Share experiences and tips of mentoring (in real life/online)

Here are a couple of resources that you may find helpful – please share any others in the comments below or in Twitter during the chat. Thanks

#occhat Grabchat – Boredom (7th May 2013)

Thank you to everyone who participated in last night’s (un-boring) chat!

I’d like to add a quote that someone posted in the ‘Mindfulness’ Facebook group in response to my blog post:

 

The Other Side of Boredom

When you are really bored, the best thing you can do is sit down and let yourself experience the boredom more fully. It may not be a deep or satisfying state, but at least you are not indulging in the things with which you usually cover up this kind of experience. Your real state of mind is more nakedly exposed, because for the time being there are no distractions. If you can stay with the experience of boredom, you can try to feel your way through into something deeper, truer, and more spontaneous within yourself.

– Sangharakshita, “Staying with Boredom”

 

Remember to document your participation in this chat as evidence of continuing professional development (check out our OTalk/Occhat and your CPD page), and please share any further thoughts/reflections in the comments below.

@BillWongOT @Helen_otuk @clissa89 I wonder if you have experienced a boring lecturer in your uni days? That also counts, right? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:53 +0100)
@CharOTReilly RT @kirstyes : #occhat I’m not entirely sure what boredom is but yet I’ve said I feel bored. Usually means I have too much to do but don’t want doany of it(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:16 +0100)
@clissa89 @robbrooks_uk I’m the same – often too busy to feel bored! But definitely makes me frustrated when I am #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:16 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @robbrooks_uk #occhat similar but when I’m bored I think I’m more likely overwhelmed then I can’t be bothered to engage.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:33 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk I get bored when doing house work – not stimulating enough. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:45 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes someone mentioned this to me earlier – thought that boredom was maybe around some sort of avoidance? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:09:47 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 for me I get bored within occupations that don’t challenge me enough. While I always keep busy I still get bored… #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:25 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @helen_otuk oh yes! (sorry lecturers) my most common boredom-inducing situation: lectures etc where I can’t leave #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:25 +0100)
@darthknitty #occhat I’ve been bored recently as stuck in bed with a bad back. Couldn’t sit up to knit 😦 @clissa89 (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:29 +0100)
@BillWongOT When I have a boring lecturer, I sometimes will go online and multi-task. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:39 +0100)
@kirstyes @clissa89 Yes, maybe, often accompanied by guilt #occhat -Need to just do what I want in those situations.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:10:59 +0100)
@Helen_otuk ok, how do we define boredom? I can get bored of doing a specific tedious task… but I then tend to utilise time to ponder stuff #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:03 +0100)
@clissa89 @Nnikki_Duffy can you expand on the overwhelmed point? what makes you overwhelmed? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:05 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @robbrooks_uk i agree, seems to be a link between #boredom and #lackofstimulation #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:09 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 I got bored during 1st year at uni. I’m now bored with salsa. It’s a bit exhausting always having to keep the interest up! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @kirstyes that will be the case if I find a uni topic disengaging. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:18 +0100)
@BPDFFS @clissa89 lots of situations like today in a meeting I lose interest very quickly, I need constant mental stimulation or I get bored #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:43 +0100)
@clissa89 @darthknitty that must have been awful 😦 I get bored too when ill/resting!! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:11:59 +0100)
@pd2ot @BPDFFS can definitely relate to that #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT I admit I did this too 😦 I withdraw if I’m bored – sometimes into a task or sometimes somewhere in my head #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @Helen_otuk As now being on “the other side of the fence” as guest lecturer, if I don’t hear laughters, I know I’m boring. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:35 +0100)
@kirstyes @Helen_otuk @clissa89 @BillWongOT Yes so etching about lack of challenge, or too much challenge? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:35 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 keeping engaged for me, does require a lot of energy and interest, can be challenging #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:12:46 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot do you get bored after a period of time elapses and then need a change? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:07 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk Is boredom a form of occupational deprivation? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:32 +0100)
@clissa89 @BPDFFS oh yes meetings….. Yawn!! 😦 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 yes… actually that’s why I made some tweets in my OTD classes this year (honestly admitting the truth). #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:13:36 +0100)
@sophiewearing I tend to find I’m bored when I’m under stimulated,if something isn’t pitched at the right level,or its the wrong activity @clissa89 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:07 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @clissa89 #occhat to much stuff to do, then I can shut down a little.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @robbrooks_uk well that’s a whole debate in itself! what do you think? (and everyone else?) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:12 +0100)
@GillyGorry @clissa89 yes.. Mainly due to feeling restricted by other things and having nothing to do. Not for a long time though #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:35 +0100)
@clissa89 I felt really guilty in lectures – and sorry for lecturers – when I disengaged from the session #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:49 +0100)
@pd2ot @CharOTReilly yep, I s’times find mindfulness helps me tolerate the lower energy/interest stuff -possibly could invest more in that #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:50 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @kirstyes yes think so, I can get bored of a task but if I utilise time to ponder or think things through then not bored? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:50 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat Good evening @michael_iwama , great to have you at #occhat @clissa89 (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:51 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @clissa89 #occhat I think the word ‘boredom’ can be interpreted different depending on ur experience of it.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:14:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 But that’s why I LOVE being able to tweet as I attend OT conferences nowadays- less boredom! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:06 +0100)
@claireOT Hello #occhat ! Just turning up to say that I find recovery/existence with chronic illness can be boring… #sensorysensitivity (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @GillyGorry what kinds of things restrict? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:20 +0100)
@Keeper85 #occhat omg hello I actually got up early enough!!(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:20 +0100)
@sophiewearing So when barriers get in the way of engagement? @darthknitty @clissa89 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:24 +0100)
@clissa89 @Nnikki_Duffy I agree – we probably have different experiences and definitions of boredom! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:36 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @sophiewearing I agree that when the task demands do not meet my needs I can get bored #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:15:49 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot I’m really interested in this idea – spotted in http://t.co/5BwctRcXxY #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:04 +0100)
@claireOT Not being able to read, or write, or even watch TV when I’m at my worst means it’s hard to relieve boredom #sensorysensitivity #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:06 +0100)
@pd2ot @BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @clissa89 #occhat Good point, I’ve yet to experience that. I’m fine with lectures I really enjoy though(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @robbrooks_uk good question. I think in a sense it is. I don’t go out much cuz there r some sports that r boring when engaged alone. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:24 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @CharOTreilly I’m often very un-mindful (and irritated!!) when bored 😦 need to work on this. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 wow that’s impressive!! which situations do you get bored in? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:47 +0100)
@GillyGorry @BillWongOT I always tried to sit near the front to keep focus. Can be hard though #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:16:51 +0100)
@claireOT Talking to ppl, going out, crafting, even listening to music can all be too much #sensorysensitivity #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:00 +0100)

@pd2ot @clissa89 that’s it. I notice I go through cycles of interest in things #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:15 +0100)
@Keeper85 #occhat I usually look at boredom from a sensory needs perspective and try and adjust accordingly(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:23 +0100)
@BillWongOT @GillyGorry I sit at the back- that way people won’t notice as much. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:26 +0100)
@clissa89 Has everyone seen my blog post on boredom? http://t.co/wLwORX1QlL has some different theories #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:50 +0100)

@Nnikki_Duffy @robbrooks_uk @sophiewearing #occhat yet sometimes u can find urself completely engaged in a very simple task.(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:14 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @clissa89 @pd2ot yea I would agree, boredom for me can turn to irritation and a bad mood. #occhat need to be more mindful #oftenwhenalone (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:19 +0100)

@clissa89 “Switch off” is my default strategy for boredom but leaves me feeling frustrated & disappointed #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:29:49 +0100)
@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @clissa89 I think it could be a habit. I say that because nowadays I have my iPhone, I check my emails more frequently #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:29:53 +0100)
@Keeper85 #occhat I know it’s difficult for me to complete a purposeful activity that has not meaning for me. E.g. Moping :-s(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:30:03 +0100)

@kirstyes #occhat I’m less likely to be bored in the early hours because that’s when I ‘hit my engagement stride'(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:31:03 +0100)
@clissa89 @SherieneHannah it’s horrible when you’re caught in a trap of boredom! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:31:13 +0100)

@pd2ot @clissa89 can definitely relate #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:32:05 +0100)
@BillWongOT @sophiewearing @clissa89 If u ask me, I think it’s our lifestyle. Some of us in this generation don’t have the patience to wait. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:32:26 +0100)

@kirstyes @sophiewearing very possibly. Less likely to stick with something challenging maybe. Other occupations too accessible #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:33:59 +0100)
@pd2ot When I was in the TC we had a psych student propose a study about boredom. OT felt noone was bored. I’m not sure – we all kept busy #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:34:07 +0100)

@pd2ot I also experienced self-defeating behaviours as a way to prevent boredom. My life was devoid of meaningful occupations #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:35:36 +0100)

@BillWongOT @francescaabrown I agree- I see that in myself since I started OT school- from having my own laptop, to now my own iPhone. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:15 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot good point – even occupations that aren’t seen as health-promoting can serve a purpose/be meaningful? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:34 +0100)

@pd2ot @Keeper85 Definitely. I find it hard to ‘just watch TV’ without simultaneously engaging in SM. Again, I feel I could be more mindful #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:27 +0100)

@Keeper85 @GillyGorry @clissa89 I think from an occ science veiw (depending on ur definition of both) they would probably be viewed similarly #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:42:58 +0100)
@clissa89 @GillyGorry I agree that there is a distinction – just difficult to unpick! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:42:59 +0100)
@clissa89 @robbrooks_uk I would argue yes. e.g. when boredom leads to anti-social/”unhealthy” occupations #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:33 +0100)
@sophiewearing Im so bad at it!automatically going2my phone if sat somewhere waiting.need to use my mindfulness more in such situs #occhat @francescaabrown (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:33 +0100)
@Minervabythesea When you have space in your mind, it can be used for so many creative things but it can take time to ‘tune in’ so allow that time #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:38 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @pd2ot @clissa89 yes I have to have the alternate thoughts. Make recommendations etc therefore not over focussed on the boring stuff #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:46 +0100)
@Keeper85 @clissa89 I think we address it when lookin into occupations that are valued and important to the client….so indirectly yea #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:43:55 +0100)
@claireOT I’m just thinking about Maslow’s hierarchy, and how boredom might indicate barriers to advancing up it. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:44:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @claireOT I’m liking your thinking…. care to share any more? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:44:50 +0100)

@BillWongOT @clissa89 @robbrooks_uk yes… I believe that’s why some youths might lock themselves in their rooms and play Internet games 1/2 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:44:58 +0100)
@sophiewearing Agree,I think u can be interested in a task but bored still. @GillyGorry @clissa89 @Keeper85 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:11 +0100)
@claireOT I wrote about Maslow’s hierarchy in social media use last year, might be interesting if you’re wondering what SoMe can do #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:16 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @robbrooks_uk and the youths I am talking about are those who eat, breathe, and sleep with these games. 2/2 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:19 +0100)
@Keeper85 @robbrooks_uk @clissa89 I sense an interesting conf presentation there 😉 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:21 +0100)

@Tchamp13 RT @claireOT : @AishaJemima yes, daydreaming, meditating and mindful breathing can be really helpful #occhat #sensorysensitivity (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:45:52 +0100)
@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @clissa89 yeah. I think it is also a subjective experience. One mans boredom in another mans disinterest #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:18 +0100)
@kirstyes #occhat It seems like there’s some challenge with identifying exactly what boredom is.I’m going to try and monitor when I feel ‘bored’ &why(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @Dai2584 this is a really interesting point. Recently explored “being” more and “doing” less #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:20 +0100)
@claireOT . @clissa89 I’m wondering if boredom might operate as a mechanism to drive us forward, to explore alternative ways to meet our needs #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot thanks for joining us – you’ve made some really interesting points that need further pondering on my part! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:35 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @Dai2584 Is doing nothing the same as being bored? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:46:40 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes it is a challenge – I struggled to even find a comprehensive definition! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:01 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Good question? Not as primary cause, but as a result maybe? d MT @robbrooks_uk : Can you die from boredom? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:13 +0100)
@Keeper85 @GillyGorry @clissa89 everything in OT should be subjective. That’s the nature f working with people #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @claireOT I’m sure there’s some research on this – boredom as motivator (cited in the Martin et al article) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:40 +0100)
@kirstyes @GillyGorry @robbrooks_uk I don’t know. I can still get bored even when I have meaningful stuff to do. When I don’t have energy #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:44 +0100)
@Tchamp13 #occhat lifestyles r so packed full and fast paced… Contributes to constant hyperarousal/neuro threshold changes(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:50 +0100)
@claireOT @quirkygrump absolutely, but maybe it’s a mechanism to drive us to seek alternative routes to self-actualisation? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:47:51 +0100)
@claireOT ? @quirkygrump : @claireOT like being under occupied and without purpose & meaning? not the route to self-actualisation me thinks? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:48:01 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @robbrooks_uk @Dai2584 I do not think so, I often am not ‘doing’ physically. But mental stimulation prevents boredom maybe? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:48:12 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @Helen_otuk totally agree #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:48:20 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @claireOT @clissa89 i love this, definatley the appreciative inquiry look at bordeom RT “used as a mechanism to drive us forward” #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:48:21 +0100)

@Keeper85 @Helen_otuk @robbrooks_uk @Dai2584 something a LOT of OTs seem to overlook! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:50:46 +0100)
@CommuneOT @robbrooks_uk @Dai2584 Hello all! Just being/stillness is not boring at all! I find mindfulness reduces stress and helps learning #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:50:52 +0100)
@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @clissa89 yes. But that what makes it hard to define #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:51:20 +0100)
@claireOT @clissa89 thanks- I’ll have to look it up. I dimly recall it was part of a major study of young ppl with schizophrenia, too #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:51:36 +0100)
@BillWongOT I also wonder one thing- can burnout cause boredom? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:51:36 +0100)
@Minervabythesea #occhat This is a fascinating subject – I quite fancy researching it – with all ages, with people with different conditions/backgrounds…(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:52:12 +0100)
@GillyGorry @kirstyes @robbrooks_uk yeah. Maybe context, motivation etc all play a part.. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:52:24 +0100)
@sarahahpmh #occhat hi there @claireOT sound interesting, was that a blog?(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:52:43 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk I occasionally do nothing but do not get bored, usually too much going on in my head! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:52:45 +0100)
@Keeper85 @Tchamp13 @clissa89 @kirstyes as any component of occupation should be viewed 😀 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:53:04 +0100)
@Dai2584 is boredom something we need in life, a bit like anxiety. We need it to motivate ourselves #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:53:08 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @Keeper85 @Helen_otuk @robbrooks_uk @Dai2584 this y need 2 b client centred, if not causing occ interruption no need 4 intervention #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:53:23 +0100)

@Minervabythesea @clissa89 @Tchamp13 @kirstyes yes because “boredom” is just a label for a subjective condition that can be positive or negative #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:53:42 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @Dai2584 I think we need to know what it ‘looks’ or ‘feels’ like. Notice the triggers. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:53:50 +0100)
@clissa89 We’ve got a few minutes left (but feel free to keep chatting past the end) – what’s your take-away message from the chat? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:54:02 +0100)

@Keeper85 @Nnikki_Duffy @GillyGorry @kirstyes @robbrooks_uk ur assuming meaning is a static concept #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 21:22:36 +0100)

@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @nnikki_duffy @kirstyes @robbrooks_uk I have been busy.. But still bored. Yes a deficit in something… Subjective though #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 21:56:11 +0100)
@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @nnikki_duffy @kirstyes deficit in doing something I want.. Doesn’t mean the things I do already don’t have meaning.. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 21:58:10 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk @GillyGorry Busy but still bored would suggest a lack of meaning, monotony or skill/demand mismatch #occhAT (Tue, 07 May 2013 22:10:31 +0100)
@claireOT @charl885 oops, sorry! How to Twitter http://t.co/8OPSdIGLxR #occhat @michael_iwama (Tue, 07 May 2013 22:11:39 +0100)
@GillyGorry @robbrooks_uk yep.. That would be why I stopped being bored and trained as an OT lol #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 22:19:12 +0100)
@GillyGorry @Keeper85 @nnikki_duffy @kirstyes maybe. Or maybe just that my occupational choices were restricted #occhat choice carries huge meaning 4 me(Tue, 07 May 2013 22:21:11 +0100)

@BillWongOT @CMiller_OTs I am also a part of #OTalk / #Occhat (even though it’s based in UK). This week’s topic for #occhat is on boredom. Check it out.(Wed, 08 May 2013 00:07:47 +0100)
@Thoodles @clissa89 @kirstyes I’ve been bored even if i didn’t have things I needed to do, but could do. For me boredom reduced motivation. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:22:12 +0100)
@Thoodles Boredom can lead to reduced motivation of doing things that I normally would enjoy doing. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:23:11 +0100)
@Thoodles @clissa89 i usually try to get inspired or look for things that could get me going, even if it means procrastination. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:24:34 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @Thoodles : Boredom can lead to reduced motivation of doing things that I normally would enjoy doing. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:25:22 +0100)
@Thoodles Would things like being tired lead to boredom, due to the reduced motivation to engage in occupation? #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:26:40 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Thoodles @clissa89 As a pianist, I sometimes I get motivated if I listen to a piano piece that represents a just right challenge. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:27:17 +0100)
@Thoodles So maybe if you’re bored, take a nap. If you wake up feeling refreshed you can get back on task. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:27:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Thoodles I brought up a question about burnout and boredom earlier. So, I think that can be a factor. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:28:02 +0100)
@Thoodles @BillWongOT @clissa89 that is exactly what I’m talking about. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:28:43 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Thoodles @clissa89 In learning such a piece (particularly complex ones), it’s more of a process than procrastination. #occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 01:29:54 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @michael_iwama : @clissa89 … Yesterday, was in a slow university senate mtg & found meself reaching for iPhone & twitter.(Wed, 08 May 2013 05:31:50 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @michael_iwama : “boredom” profound & culture- bound, tied to place,time& circumstance. Not merely absence of ‘meaningful’ ‘doing'(Wed, 08 May 2013 05:33:02 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @HScott71 : @michael_iwama @clissa89 Wonder whether social media culture affects children – bored by traditional play occupations?(Wed, 08 May 2013 05:35:20 +0100)
@claireOT @Symbolic_Life we’re so delighted, too! #otalk #occhat #leadership (Wed, 08 May 2013 09:24:28 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat RT @DebLants : @claireOT @clissa89 i agree with this. When you’re bored you look into other things to keep you occupied(Wed, 08 May 2013 13:01:36 +0100)
@roberTO_OT Boredom to me is lack of productive doing. Big issue w/unemployed! Espec. in my research. Disability also plays a role – wanting2do! #Occhat (Wed, 08 May 2013 14:07:01 +0100)
@roberTO_OT @Keeper85 #Occhat Boredom doesn’t necessarily have to relate to occupation. Therefore, productivity as opposed to meaning is more salient(Wed, 08 May 2013 14:20:52 +0100)

#occhat – Boredom (7th May 2013)

What is boredom and what causes it?

(How) can boredom be overcome?

Is boredom an issue that occupational therapists should address?

 


You guessed it: the topic for this week’s #occhat is Boredom – join us on Tuesday 7th May at 8pm BST (click link for your local time). We want to hear from you if you’ve ever experienced boredom (or even if you haven’t).

If this is your first Twitter chat, you may find this guide to tweetchats useful.

In preparation for the chat, you may wish to reflect on your own experience of boredom (whether personally or professionally) and any strategies you have used to address it.

I (@clissa89) have written a blog post  based on an interesting article I read in a recent issue of the Journal of Occupational Science. You may also want to revisit our #occhat about mindfulness and occupation.

Finally, check out our #OTalk/#Occhat and Your CPD page for a suggestion of how to document your preparation for/participation in the chat as evidence of continuing professional development.

We look forward to chatting with you soon!
