Reclaiming Time

This morning I took my early morning coffee out onto the patio and savored the cool air, steam rising from my mug doing its swirling dance with the light breeze.

The pollinators were busy amongst the abundant squash flowers in the garden.  I found myself mesmerized by their efficiency and inspired to tackle my day with the same level of tenacity.  I began to plan my day.

I used to try and plan out every minute of the day.  I loved the checklist style of a Day-timer that allowed me to fill every 15 minute slot if I wanted.  I definitely get a dopamine hit every time I check something off my list.  I wanted every minute to be a productive one, this set me up for failure most days by not allowing adequate time to complete various things on the list.  These failures were discouraging and often led to abandonment of the system and then a sudden, “I can do it this time” mentality.  Back in the day I thought bragging about being exhausted and busy was a badge of honor. Ugh.

What I’ve learned is, while I definitely love the dopamine hit of checking off tasks and feeling accomplished, this doesn’t really work for me to be happy and fulfilled in my life.  I need space.  And by space I mean swaths of time where I have the freedom to think, explore, muse and imagine.  I need loose boundaries and timeframes to allow for inspired thought.

Nowadays my schedule looks more like a meeting list and then one or two things that are critical to accomplish on that day.  These may be deliverables owed to others or critical strategy items that need further research.  Once I accomplish those things, I have a list of ideas and dreams.  The open space is where I go deep on a topic or an idea to see if it has legs and can be further developed.

I’ve also started a new practice of not taking my laptop home unless I absolutely must.  With work less likely to encroach on my family time, I’m finding myself less pressured in the evenings and feeling free to enjoy the nightly banter of our family.  I’m also recapturing time to exercise, which has been something I’ve struggled to maintain throughout the pandemic.

While my way of planning and managing my time may not work for you, my hope is you will be inspired to look at how you are spending your time, your most precious gift, and be sure it aligns with what makes you feel more fulfilled.  We get one allotment of time in our lifetime—how will you reclaim it?

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

On January 19th, 2023 Grant Blackford Mental Health, Inc. and Family Service Society, Inc. merged to create a bigger, better, and brighter mental health organization called Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
