Listened to LeAnn Thieman speak about ways that caregivers can care for themselves and find ways to renew their energy while caring for others. While I’m not a caregiver in that I do it day in and day out, I think everyone is a caregiver of one sort or another. I care for my Mom, although not on a daily basis. I care for my kids. I care for my partner. But it’s important to take care of me also. I think we get so wrapped up in caring for others that we forget to take care of ourselves. I mostly focus on the physical, but Thieman mentioned four mental areas to achieve balance: Breathe, Laugh, Forgive and practice Positive Thinking. Sounds like a good idea.
