TOP 7 HIPster TIPS…During THR Recovery


1.  tvTime to add more movie channels to your TV – ask for a month free promotion.2.   emailAdd email and IM to your phone by getting a month free from your cell phone provider, says time and pain not to have to get up and check your mail; you get everything in one place.3.    baby blankie Buy yourself an adult “blankie” to curl up with and take with you in ever room you lie or relax in.  You should be getting up and changing positions every 25 or 30 minutes.  Taking your “blankie” with you helps to feel secure and safe in the womb of your recovery home.  Mine is a soft, lion-type motif….reminding me that I am strong….like a mother lion.

4.   groceryOrder groceries, water bottles and household items online (I used yummy.com), they deliver your favorites items (including hand-made deli food) and carry it up to your kitchen.

5.    walking with cane Find a neighbor who normally walks daily and ask them if you can tag along on a consistent basis, that way you don’t have to beg or encourage friends to come and take you for a walk.

6.   lettersTell the mailman you’ll be recovering inside your home, and if he/she wouldn’t mind leaving your mail by your door.   You can tip them during the holidays for this gift of convenience.

7.   pink_phone Have a buddy system with a few appointed friends, which you/they check in on daily, in the morning and at night.  Other people and friends have their own lives, and it’s frustrating and almost depressing to feel like you’ve been forgotten during the recovery time.

Take three smaller walks a day instead one big one (which is harder to recover from).  It’s like eating small meals throughout the day – much better for our bodies.  Same with walking….easier to recover from small walks – and more enjoyable to see the world throughout the day!

Ask for what you need – so people know!!! 


Stay tuned for more HIP tips as they reveal themselves!

HIP Happy Hours

Throw a ‘Fond Farewell Party’ for your old hip, and welcome in a newer, more bionic one – with your friends… to help you celebrate this initiation into the Hipster Club!   You can also invite people who may be experiencing their own process of replacement.

Plan your HIP celebration on a cruise ship or resort get-away.  I will create a WOW event for you on an amazing budget!  All you have to do is fill out this form…and we’re on our way to celebrate your newly bionic life!  🙂

Replacing the old self…into a new and improved model.  Celebrate this LIFE CHANGING experience, I did it and it was amazing.  I felt truly supported and loved.  It helped me let people know I am moving forward with courage and gusto.

I’ll help you organize your Hip Happy Hour as sort of your “Coming Out Party” or HIP debut.  I’ll help you with your list, the invitation and how to coordinate it with your schedule.

You are entering a more bionic life, and as scary as it may feel right now – you will feel relieved, revived and ready to be initiated into a new way of being…more HIP!

These HIP Happy Hours are very cathartic and celebratory.  Trust me, I know.  I use to be a DO, DO, DOER.  Now, I have been reminded and encouraged to slow down and do my life a new way …and through the process, I have learned so much more about who I am, and who I’m really NOT….that I’ve created this site for YOU!

I’m here to support you in this initiation, and also assist you in creating  HIPster Clubs in your area. Hipster Clubs are not only to celebrate your new HIP status, but to help others going through it as well.  It’s a form of paying-it-forward!

Start planning your Hip Happy Hour Party right now….   send me an email and let’s get going!
