Over the last couple of months, I have been immersed in a medical situation with a family member that caused major disruption in our day to day lives. Many of my usual activities were suspended during this time, including writing this blog I’m sorry to say. However, now that the crisis has passed with a very positive outcome, I’d like to share what helped us through this challenging time in our lives with the hope that others might benefit.
Remember that being a caregiver for family members or others can deplete one's physical, emotional and mental reserves, so it's important to take care of yourself. Eat healthy meals, maintain an exercise routine (yoga is great for this) and know that you are being a tremendous support for your loved ones during this challenging time. When stressed, which is normal, remember to express gratitude and appreciation for the opportunity to be of service to another.
