When we start to understand the inner workings of our neurobiology alongside everyday events and memories from the past (either ones that were good, or not so good), so much starts to make sense.
Speaking from experience, it is no coincidence I had daily tummy aches and wanted to go home all the time when I was in grade one, as our teacher punished us in the strangest ways, and treated us like pests. But then, the moment I was in grade two, the tummy pains lifted and I enjoyed class because the teacher was calm and interested.
These two teachers displayed their nervous systems on their ‘sleeves’ by how they interacted with their students: one grumpy and looking to create more stress, no doubt due to their internal stress, and the other beaming with peace and nothing but goodness, that no doubt created safety for all us little humans.
The concept of ‘bedside manner’ is often reserved for hospital and medical environments, but it is EVERYWHERE.
In this week’s vlog, I speak about the ‘biology of bedside manner,’ share some of my medical memories, and why this simple concept can make, or break, human interactions of all kinds.
