Did you know you have a right to see your medical record? And if you find a mistake you can request it to be corrected, or if you disagree with something your provider noted, you also have a right to write your own note stating that.
So why do we feel like we are snooping when we steal a glance at our “chart”? It’s our record, our right. Or are we afraid of what we might find out?
Health Information Privacy rules of protection has been around since 1996. Along with the right to view your chart, you have the right to:
Frigid temps, overcast skies with no hint of sun for days in a row can make even the hardiest person feel gloomy. Don’t become a victim of the winter blues! I have already field tested these 10 interventions and stand behind my word: try one, or kick it up a notch and do them all! You’ll be surprised at how quickly your mood will brighten.
#Exercise: bundle up and take a walk. The hardest part is finding the oomph to get outside, but once you’re out it’s quite pleasant.

Do you think yourself as successful? How do you define success?
Merriam-Webster defines it as, “the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame“. I think Webster completely misses the mark with that definition. Success is viewed differently depending on your culture, upbringing, social situation, work environment, and worldview.
Success is not a one-size-fits-all standardized, measurable thing. No one would argue that the self-made millionaires, Edison/Einstein types, Hollywood stars, Olympic athletes, or Pulitzer Prize winners aren’t successful.
We all want to be liked. It’s part of being human. We are social beings who need to belong, to be accepted by others. Our self-esteem and success are intricately woven to what others think about us. It is rare to meet someone who is not hurt by a rude comment, a bad review, or an insult that was neither provoked nor justified.
Just look at social media – there’s like buttons on every platform. People buy followers so they look rock star popular. I stopped following new folks because I don’t know who’s real and who’s not.
I am a thief. Well, not in the traditional sense – I don’t go around at night breaking into houses, and I haven’t stolen candy from the grocery store since I was 5 years old. But, I am doing the things Austin Kleon suggests I should be doing to unlock my creativity and produce some good stuff – I’m stealing like an artist.
InSteal Like an Artist, Austin’s definition of stealing is not unethical, illegal,or plagiarism. It’s about finding ideas out there that are good and stealing them, or “embracing the influence”. It’s the way art is done.
