Meet Magdalene, Senior Physiotherapist, St. Andrew’s Community Hospital. Her main role is to help patients in promoting functional mobility and palliative care at her work.
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF IN 1 LINE.
I would like to say that I have a positive outlook in life, and I don’t sweat the small stuff.
TELL US SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU.
A lot of people don’t know that I like to dance. I enjoy keeping myself active in both dancing and swimming. I enjoy freestyle dancing and enjoy the occasional musical along the way.
WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
Someone once told me not to worry so much and not to sweat the small stuff. Whether you worry or you don’t, you still have to pass each day at a time. Don’t worry about the future and accept each and every challenge as it is.
TELL US ABOUT A TIME WHEN THIS PIECE OF ADVICE CAME IN USEFUL.
Working as a physiotherapist, there are always challenges happening daily. There are many things to worry about; from the patient’s recuperation rate to the various ongoing projects happening. I’ll worry about not having enough time to finish everything; but I’ve learned not to be a worry-wart and to live each day at a time. I’ve learned to become more flexible, so that I can learn to manage my time better too.
