A fresh, authentic approach to self care!
Do you remember playing the childhood game "Red Light. Green Light" on the playground? In her fresh, fun book, Dr. Aimee Ketchum uses the familiar game as a springboard to help all OTs reclaim who they are so they can deliberately reflect and be the best they can be!
-Dr. Anne Zachry, Author of Retro Baby and Retro Toddler
“This book is for any OT who has felt stressed out and overwhelmed. It’s time to take action and steps to care for yourself, just like you take care of your clients. There has never been a better time than right now! Read this book, engage in reﬂection, and nourish your body and soul. You won’t regret it.”

Oh, my achin’ back! Physical Health
I carried two hula hoops, three large buckets, and two five-pound weights up three flights of stairs today to make an obstacle course in a kindergarten classroom...
Long hours. Evenings. Weekends. Holidays. Mountains of work.
I missed my daughter’s ballet recital because we cannot find weekend coverage for in-patient... I drive an hour one way to the trauma hospital every day....
This Baby Might Not Make it. The Emotional Toll
Louis can't drive anymore and he is going to be devastated... Three-year-old Robbie needs another open-heart-surgery so we will not be learning to ride his tricycle today as I planned...
