Dear Medicare

February 27, 2014

Dear Medicare,

Do you know why providers don’t want to do business with you? What business has a one hour window that is the “best time” to call each morning? Are you saying you only work one hour of each day? When I call in this one hour window, I still don’t get help. Please help me understand why you would not staff customer service representatives to SERVE your clients all day long. Please help me understand why a minimum 90 minute wait to talk to you is acceptable. Please help me understand why you direct us to your website but the website doesn’t have any information to answer our questions. Please help me understand when the new intermediary took over for the old intermediary why you don’t have access to these files. Please help me understand with the advancement of technology and the ability to do so much online why you haven’t adapted to the year 2014. Please help me understand why we still do business with you…OH, I forgot, you don’t want to know.

Sincerely,

A Healthcare Consultant that seriously feels she is losing her passion for what she does!!!!!

Dispel Negative Thinking

July 24, 2013

Negative thinking greatly impacts the cells in your body. Just for today become the ‘watcher’. Notice how many times you ‘judge’, comment or make an opinion that keeps you from moving forward. Once you notice this pattern of ‘stinkin’ thinkin’ you can start to replace those negative thoughts with positive affirmations that will help you to heal and improve your quality of life. Each time you catch yourself with a negative thought immediately replace it with this mantra: “I am Happy, I am Calm, I am Whole, I am Abundant.” Believe it when you say it, feel the vibrations of the words in your heart and mind.

8 Simple Ways to Improve Quality of Sleep

July 3, 2013

1. Exercise, but not after the early evening.
2. Don’t drink caffeine after 2 p.m.
3. Avoid late night eating or alcohol (but don’t go to bed hungry either!).
4. Don’t use electronic devices before sleeping. They stimulate the brain and the screen light acts like sunlight in the morning.
5. Don’t study, etc. in your bed. Reserve it for the other three S’s: Sleep, Sex, Sickness.
6. Maintain a regular schedule. If you have off days, try not to sleep in too much.
7. Avoid naps, especially after 2 p.m. and not longer than 20 minutes.
8. Try to go to sleep at the same time every night. You can set an alarm at night to remind you of bedtime. This will help you develop a healthy sleeping pattern and hopefully, feel better in the morning.
