A few weeks ago, I filmed a video for a carer's agency in London, UK, to help carers take care of themselves.
In these modern times, in the middle of a pandemic it can be hard enough to prioritize self-care. But when you add in the role of caregiver (whether that is to your spouse or partner, parent, child, sibling), it can seem impossible. The logistics, the emotions, the energy - it all plays a part in YOU coming last.
If this is you, or someone you know, please take the time to watch this video, and put the very doable steps into action.
It is so so true that you cannot pour from an empty cup, and if you want to continue to serve in the best way you can, you NEED to look after yourself on a regular basis.
