There are many truths that have risen to the surface for me over the years on this journey of caring for others. One of them I want to share with you right away is…
As a caregiver, you are constantly considerate of others at the expense of your own needs. Relax, it isn't our fault! You and I live in a world that makes it expensive and time-consuming to get healthy. That's where creativity, flexibility and adaptabilty come in. We need a solid self-care plan that is uncompromising, resilient, versatile, and equipped to withstand the world we live in.
A life without proper self-care tools can and will…
- Age your body faster
- Shorten your lifespan
- Bring depression, anxiety or other worse condition
- Affect your closest relationships
- Increase inflammation in the body
"Chronic stress accelerates aging by actually shortening cell life. This leads to weaker muscles, skin wrinkles, and even organ failure. Severe stress can take as many as 10 years off a person’s life."
-Family Caregiver Alliance

The cycle of burnout is a process by which our inner self-care intuition is cut off and stifled.
Caregiver burnout is a hot topic in the field of medicine right now, and for hands down good reasons! According to The National Center on Caregiving, 45% of caregivers report having serious chronic conditions including heart attack, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis.
Part of your duty as a caregiver is to take excellent care of yourself!
If you allow me to be your guide in the cultivation of a solid self-care practice, we can actually change the course of the future for caregivers that will come after us. To leave a legacy of hope for others. And to be that voice of hope for the collective caregiving community of the world.
