On my 21st birthday a scream saved my life.
But wait… let me back up a smidgen.
On my 20th birthday I started planning my big 21 with my BFF. The trip involved three weeks of summer backpacking through England and then up to Ireland.
When we landed in Belfast, my heart exploded with adventure and I fell deeply in love with the city.
One the day of my birthday, we woke up early and hit the streets running to celebrate the day.
Shortly thereafter, we ran into a four lane busy [highway-like] street and just as I was about to take my first step into the street to cross I heard my BFF scream at the top of her lungs.
I was so shocked by the high pitched sound, it stopped me dead in my tracks.
When I jerked my head around, I saw my BFF’s finger stretched out, pointing at the street.
What I saw shocked me.
I came millimeters close to stepping into rushing ongoing traffic and most surely to my death without realizing it.
Here’s what happened:
In Ireland, people drive on the left hand side of the road, and you pass on the right, the exact opposite of what we here in the US drive.
So instead of looking in both directions before crossing (which is what I should’ve have done) I simply looked in one direction to the left and didn’t see any oncoming traffic.
I was out of my flow and it almost killed me.
Now, this is an extreme example of how a misalignment with the flow of energy can harm us.
But it’s also a great example of how the flow of your patients, clients and staff in your health or wellness space can create a calming experience or a chaotic, confused and stressful one.
So how do you know if your space is in or out-of-the-flow?
Answer these three quick questions:
1) Do my patients and clients find my office easily and are they mostly on time or is patient tardiness the norm?
2) Is there confusion in the waiting room as to how your peeps enter and exit? And does it create some chaos?
3) Do your patients ever get lost after they use the restroom and try to find their way either back to a treatment room or the waiting room?
A well-designed health and wellness environment includes having good flow.
Good flow creates calm.
Good flow helps your peeps feel in control of their surroundings and reduces social anxiety.
And good flow builds your business.
