#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

 

 

#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 @clissa89 that end of party is probably as anti-thesis for today’s topic. 🙂 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:01:31 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @clissa89 hii! #otuesday so far so good, final VIVAs issued today so been working on that today. Hows your day? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:01:56 +0100)

@BillWongOT @clissa89 Bored a lot of times- too much time in solitude in my liking. 😦 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:05:18 +0100)
@clissa89 For those of you who have experienced boredom – what has your experience been like? When was the last time you felt bored? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:05:47 +0100)
@OTalk_Occhat RT @clissa89 : Out of curiosity… has anyone here never experienced boredom? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:06:02 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT so you are more likely to feel bored if you are alone? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:06:54 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOTReilly thank you 🙂 that sounds like a really interesting case study! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:07 +0100)
@robbrooks_uk Very rarely bored, too much to do! When I am bored I think I feel frustrated.
#occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:07 +0100)
@BPDFFS @clissa89 yes all the time #occhat it’s a bad place to be for me, I need to keep busy to distract(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:08 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @clissa89 bored in traffic on my way home from the library this afternoon #veryboring , #lackofstimulation #lackofmeaningfulness #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:18 +0100)
@pd2ot Hello #occhat -ers, sorry I’m late – I was at a lovely BBQ :-)(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:28 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 yes… because there were times I wish I have a girlfriend in my life. It’d have been more fulfilling #lifeasasingleguy #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:07:45 +0100)
@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 20:07:55 +0100)
@clissa89 @BPDFFS what kinds of situations do you feel bored in? I do that too – keep busy! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:04 +0100)
@BillWongOT RT @robbrooks_uk : Very rarely bored, too much to do! When I am bored I think I feel frustrated.
#occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:09 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 @BillWongOT I do not think I have every experienced boredom when alone. Possibly when doing tedious task? But not sure??? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:13 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot we’re honoured that you came in for us! 🙂 glad you had a nice BBQ. What situations do you feel bored in? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:08:31 +0100)
@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)
@CharOTReilly @BillWongOT @pd2ot @clissa89 yes a great perk of #socialmedia #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:05 +0100)
@clissa89 RT @robbrooks_uk : Is boredom a form of occupational deprivation? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:17:08 +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)
@claireOT If anyone has any good ways to relieve boredom that can be done in a quiet, dark room, I’m looking for tips! #sensorysensitivity #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:04 +0100)
@GillyGorry @clissa89 when I didn’t feel like I had control to do things I wanted. Or something prevented #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:09 +0100)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 can you give an example from your own life? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:10 +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)

@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 too bad I don’t attend many talks- too many poster sessions! Hard to tweet when I’ve to move and see. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:18:58 +0100)

@Keeper85 #occhat I start a job, get to learn it, start some quality improvement, finish that, get bored. I love change, keeps me pumped(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:20:16 +0100)
@BillWongOT @claireOT tried to be aware of that on Pinterest, but haven’t seen any good ones. 😦 #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:20:23 +0100)

@pd2ot I also know the boredom experienced can lead to lowered mood and getting locked in a cycle of occupations that maintain boredom #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:22:32 +0100)

@clissa89 @pd2ot can you elaborate on occupations that maintain boredom? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:23:45 +0100)
@BillWongOT just throwing a thought- I wonder since we’ve many “time killing devices”, are we more bored easily if we r not around them? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:23:46 +0100)

@kirstyes @BillWongOT @clissa89 What is it do you think that is disengaging? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:25:08 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 sometimes I feel I have the option to make a change – and don’t. Perhaps I could increase interest/challenge #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:25:18 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 you can say that partly… since a lot of people carrying a smartphone, ipad, or similar stuff nowadays to kill time. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:25:19 +0100)

@pd2ot @clissa89 for me, maintaining engagement in ‘boring occupations’ feels self-defeating and I’ll choose to do that. Not always though #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:26:03 +0100)

@robbrooks_uk @claireOT @pluminmouth maybe fast technology makes us bored?
#occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:35:12 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot I reckon it’s possible to be bored and busy at the same time. What do you think? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:35:27 +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)
@kirstyes @GillyGorry @robbrooks_uk But often I have too much to do, so not deprived as such. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:35:58 +0100)

@sophiewearing @Keeper85 @clissa89 @BillWongOT almost like due to technological advances we feel the need to fill thAt void rather than embrace it #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:04 +0100)
@claireOT Wow. @michael_iwama has made my #otuesday by joining in #occhat ! #totalOThero #sensei (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:07 +0100)
@Keeper85 @clissa89 @GillyGorry boredom seems to come with neurovegatative symptoms. Low energy, low motivation, unable to concentrate #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:11 +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 @clissa89 absolutely (character limit prevented profound statement about being busy not meaning we weren’t bored/dissatisfied) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:36:45 +0100)
@clissa89 @claireOT @michael_iwama hello michael! 🙂 is your account protected? I’ve not seen any tweets #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:02 +0100)
@Keeper85 @kirstyes I don’t know if that’s possible haha…maybe u need a Harry Potter broom mop?? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:04 +0100)
@Tchamp13 @clissa89 #occhat I tend to keep busy one way or another; lots of projects, writing, read, family time….(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:05 +0100)
@Helen_otuk @clissa89 @pd2ot Yes i could have been bored, but seeking alternate methods to suggest made me think and also evidence my feedback #Occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:12 +0100)
@clissa89 @sophiewearing @keeper85 @BillWongOT I think this is a really important point #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:29 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 Definitely. And self-defeating occs provided me with interest and challenge (among other things) #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:40 +0100)
@BillWongOT @sophiewearing @Keeper85 @clissa89 turn on “do not disturb” option on my iPhone if I’m in a situation I can’t multitask #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:37:47 +0100)
@Keeper85 #occhat I think tech feeds our need for instant gratification which probably had evolved us into getting bored more quickly(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:06 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @clissa89 I make people do this as an example of what it might be like sitting in a care home. Staff find it really difficult. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:06 +0100)
@kirstyes @Keeper85 Oooh that would probably work for me #occhat (At least one time).(Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:20 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 @Helen_otuk Ah yes, can relate to Clarissa’s experience – might try yours next time Helen! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:20 +0100)
@clissa89 Should occupational therapists address boredom? Do you? #occupationaltherapy #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:36 +0100)
@sophiewearing @clissa89 @Keeper85 @BillWongOT agreed.Especially to understand our clients and their boredom/reducing boredom. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:38 +0100)
@CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 feeling challenged for me helps to maintain attention and decrease boredom #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:41 +0100)
@pocketot Twiddling thumbs and serial opposition tasks would deal w/ fm coordination AND boredom! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:38:58 +0100)
@clissa89 @Keeper85 this is certainly true for me. though before tech think I probably used other strategies! #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:10 +0100)
@BillWongOT @sophiewearing @clissa89 @Keeper85 but if we are not good examples, how can we expect our clients to follow? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:21 +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)
@claireOT ? @Minervabythesea : Instead of telling myself “I am bored” thinking “what shall I do now?” & doing what comes to mind works for me.? #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:31 +0100)

@BillWongOT @CharOTReilly @pd2ot @clissa89 as long as it is a “just right challenge”, IMO. Too challenging sometimes can mean disengagement. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:39:57 +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)

@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)

@Helen_otuk @Keeper85 agree also the importance of doing nothing! I try to make time to ‘do nothing’ just to switch off or down at least. #occhat (Tue, 07 May 2013 20:56:43 +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)
