Taking care of Caregivers

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.
