Parkinsons and D.R.E.A.D. Daily Actions

The Mapping Phase of DECIDE SUCCESS involves three action steps: Assessment, End-Vision and Daily Actions. If you have been diagnosed with Parkinsons, you are well aware of the things you used to be able to do, but no longer can. But there are things you can still do. You need to first re-assess and identify your remaining talents, abilities, strengths and interests. Based upon those attributes, you need to engage in an End-Vision. Actually project yourself into the future and experience what you want to be. Finally, you need to break down what will get you from here to there into daily actions. The D.R.E.A.D. Daily Actions demonstrate the things I need to do every day to live life to the fullest with Parkinsons. My End-Vision is to be the slowest progressing Person with Parkinsons in the annals of medical history.

Here is what D.R.E.A.D. stands for (and, make no mistake about it, I sometimes, as the name implies, dread doing these things):

D – Diet and Hydration
R – Rest and Relaxation
E – Exercise
A – Attitude
D – Drugs as prescribed
