Well, here we have a topic that belongs to everyone. My intention is to put information here that is interesting to patients and caregivers that will motivate them to move their daily habits to more healthy choices.
So bring your thoughts and comments. What you do to bring yourself some inner peace each day may help another. Let’s face it….we need to refuel our “energy tanks” each day.
Stress is a killer. It makes you emotionally challenged and can make you physically ill. Some people need to take medication to manage their levels of depression and anxiety. What I am hoping for here is a way to share good energy and realize that we are not alone in our frustration and feelings of guilt, when we are tired of the job that we do each day as caregivers. It doesn’t mean we don’t love our friend or family member, it just means that we get tired. That is normal. What we do about it…that is the important thing.
Exercise? How about let’s move more! What are some exercises you can do during the day, without leaving the house? Housework is an exercise, but not much fun though. How about putting on some music and dance around the house while you clean up the kitchen? Or dust the living room. Make it fun! Try it. Let us know what happens. Music can be magic…to transform how you feePut on some head phones! Listen to music, or motivational messages. There’s lots of positive stuff out there! Let us know how you handle stress! Send us your thoughts! Let us know what you need! Go to “Contact Us” and share your story! “Let’s get going!” xo Sally
