Breaking the rumination trap

Have you ever been stuck in a swirl of negative thoughts, rehashing things that you should or shouldn’t have said or done? Most of us will recognise this circular self-battering, a process known as rumination.

Rumination, or ‘chewing the cud’, refers to the way that certain mammals – ruminants – eat, storing their partially-digested food in a special stomach called a rumen, then regurgitating it to chew it again more thoroughly.

In humans, rumination means repeatedly brooding over events from the past, such as the break up of a relationship, or a conflict with a colleague, wondering about others’ motivations or what could have been. It can go on for hours or days.

"LocumDeck is so good and so intuitive that I am lost for words and utterly filled with glee.

It can send an email confirming the sessions that are booked and creates and emails invoices direct to the practice for you. These contain links to your beautifully laid out ‘credentials’ page with all your relevant documents, and a model contract that is all ready for you to accept or edit.

It automatically produces and sends the locum form A, and will produce locum form B. It also acts as the calendar... And it all happens automatically. It is really less than a minute to invoice and do the pension forms, with everything calculated perfectly."
