NZAOTWelcome to Meaningful occupations, a blog set up by the New Zealand Association of Occuptional Therapists  to ask the question: “What are the world’s most meaningful occupations?”

To an occupational therapist, an occupation is not just what you are employed to do.  Occupations are all the things that you do – these activities help express who you are, how you feel about yourself and how you connect with others. 

So, if occupation is everything you do, such as – driving a car, cooking, caring for yourself or others, a hobby, a sport, a paid job, or something you do for relaxation – then everyone will have a number of occupations that are meaningful to them.

What about you?  What are your favourite occupations?  What occupation would you miss if you couldn’t do it any more?
