A gentle reminder to caregivers to check in with yourselves. Are you focused on taking care of children, partners, or parents, and forgetting about your own needs? Remember you can’t give from an empty cup, so find ways to fill your own cup throughout your day.
Have you rested? Rest doesn’t have to mean sleep. Creating quiet time throughout your day can help calm a busy mind and recharge you.
Have you eaten? Skipping meals can cause mood swings, fatigue, and lack of motivation.
If you forget to eat, set a timer to remind yourself. Eating snacks between meals with protein and good fats can be a game changer! Try some peanut butter, trail mix, or an avocado!
Are you reaching out? Each day assess how you’re feeling with everything going on. If you need help or just someone to talk to, reach out to your loved ones. There are so many ways you can be supported even from a distance. Pick up the phone and call your best friend. Join a fun Facebook group. Facetime or ZOOM with friends and family members!
