Avoiding Caregiver Burnout

Posted by Ulliance on May 27, 2020 12:31:19 PM

Becoming a caregiver for a parent, spouse or other loved one is a selfless act—and one that often comes with many physical and emotional challenges.

Care-giving frequently requires a person to dedicate most of their time and attention to caring for the patient, leaving little time for other activities. That can swiftly and dramatically change the nature of relationships. In addition, caregivers might not feel equipped to provide the kind of care their patient needs. All of this can lead to stress and, when left unchecked, caregiver burnout.

Make Yourself #1

Posted by Rene' Carpenter on May 21, 2020 9:44:12 AM

Enough with the COVID! Feel happier and healthier when you practice self-care at work and at home.

Put on your own oxygen mask before assisting others. We’ve all heard it before, but when it comes to our everyday lives, we don’t tend to apply that simple message. Remember: You can’t take care of others, if you don’t first take care of yourself.

Everything is so crazy right now, like a page out of science fiction novel. But now more than ever before, self-care is so important. Our schedules have been turned upside down, and it becomes easier to become complacent about taking good care of ourselves both mentally and physically.

Self-care can often be difficult for people. Practicing self-care can feel selfish or counter-intuitive. But, thankfully, there are small steps you can take to put yourself first. And in doing so, you give your best to your job, family and the rest of your life.

Relationship Strain During COVID-19

Are you maintaining clear & consistent communication with family & friends?

We are in an unprecedented time where there are many unknowns and tensions are, understandably, running high. With so many people experiencing high levels of stress the things that we could once ignore now have the potential to cause great irritation and disruption, especially within relationships. Social distancing has also created breakdowns in communication and routines. Maintaining clear and consistent communication with friends and family can help to strengthen and maintain healthy relationships for the remainder of the stay at home order and beyond.

Staying On Top of Your Health During COVID-19

Posted by Rene' Carpenter on Apr 15, 2020 9:48:02 AM

Stress Less!
To reduce stress and anxiety, calm the mind, eat wisely, stay moving and relax your nervous system —we've got you! Try these tips:

• Social distancing is fine. Social isolation is not. As more of the world goes into shelter in place mode, it’s important to maintain social connections. Call friends and family members and turn that video camera on for your remote work meetings.

• When Experiencing Anxiety, Make It RAIN: Recognize what’s going on in your mind and body. Allow the experience to be there, just as it is. Investigate your thoughts & emotions with kindness. Non-Identify: you are not your thoughts & emotions.

• Take a News and Social Media Break: Over the next few weeks, visit news and social media sites with care. Twice a day is plenty. Instead, improve your wellbeing by focusing on the smaller tasks that are in your direct control.

• When Stressed, Use SBNRR: The Stop - Breathe - Notice - Reflect - Respond technique helps to interrupt the wandering mind to bring you back to a point of calm and focus… and especially when you’ve been triggered.

• Make Gratitude a Daily Practice: Each day when you wake, name three things you’re grateful for. Do the same when you go to bed. Encourage your family to incorporate this helpful practice to train a positive mindset during this challenging time.

How to Ease Into Mid-Life

Posted by Ulliance on Mar 11, 2020 8:17:37 AM

Easing Into Mid-Life🌞Like Sunday Morning!

Have you noticed how people tend to stop listening to new music and stick to their familiar old standbys by the time they’re middle aged? Researchers have discovered we identify with favorite genres of music in our teen years and our interest in exploring other types of music peaks and typically fades by age 30. So there’s a reason why we listen to old, favorite go-to songs. Plus, it triggers a pleasure response in the brain, so there’s nothing to be ashamed of in listening to old music; it’s free and in ample supply.

But sticking to the same playlists you had in your 20s and 30s is only fine for music; in most other areas of life, changes are required to adapt to middle age.
