Treatment centers have waiting lists this time of year...that says a lot. And can add to the stress.
One of the most helpful actions family caregivers can take is to fill oneself up. Sounds counterintuitive I know. AND, I’ve seen the difference it makes over and over with myself and my clients.
- Listen to a meditation on grief (there are so many losses…) https://youtu.be/D42dK8nt_rE
- Take action to find the proper treatment for your loved one - action can help with the helplessness and can help your loved one.
- AND THEN, take time to fill YOU UP. Take a day if you can to do things just for you.
Cheers to a wonderful new year of including YOU on your TO DO list. :)
