Why oh why do we put so much stress on ourselves? I am sure we all put such high expectations on caring for our loved one and god forbid we falter. We all have so many reasons for feeling guilt. You missed sending a card to a sick friend. You missed a soccer game. You are feeling angry about how unfair that your loved one is ill? You might also feel angry about your loved one for getting sick! What injustice we do to ourselves. We all know the feelings we have on being a caregiver and the guilt we all have. There is much stress and we have to find ways to help you feel better. Seek out help from a friend or talk with your doctor. When you tell someone you need help with you and your health, there will be some relief that you took that first step to help you. You could also find some help with respite care. If you get ill who will be stepping in to help take over the care of your loved one?
Here is an idea that I think is a good start to move away from the situation and take 5 deep breaths. Believe me, this does help you to get to a place to think clearly and how you can find the solutions for you, your health and your loved one. The first step is to ask for help.
What tips do you have to help you reduce stress levels in your life? Your tips could help another caregiver. Please share and help someone else on their journey. Be a changemaker!

Perhaps you could purchase a gift for your favorite Caregiver for the Holidays. Wouldn’t be great to send a surprise gift to a Caregiver. Perhaps on a day that it would lift her/his spirit. It is so easy and you will bring perhaps some tears of joy that you are making it a wonderful day for that special caregiver. Here is a gift idea a caregiver may really like, The travel mug she/he can use for the cup of coffee when taking there loved one out. Who doesn’t need that extra sip of coffee? There are so many more gifts at the one-line store.

This is also National Caregivers Month a time to recognize, support, and empower family caregivers. Do something to support the many caregivers that work many hours without much support. For the families or friends of the caregiver, here is a suggestion. Why don’t you give some of your free time for the caregiver to have a day to themselves? What a great early Holiday Gift that would be. Please remember the caregiver and help in some small way.
Make it a Brilliant day
