Self Care Planner
Your self-care is vital to the health of your entire family as you work to fill yet another role; caregiver. Your family is depending on you in more ways than usual right now. It is not easy to juggle your job, your family and all of these appointments, medication tracking and hospital bills. A caregiver experiences so much added stress.
As much as I know you want to prioritize your family first, it is impossible to pour from an empty cup. Putting yourself first may not come natural for you. That’s why I’ve developed the Caregiver’s Self-Care Planner.
We Guide You Through It!
We know that this practice of self-care doesn’t come naturally to everyone and can be even more difficult when you’re experiencing difficult times. It is possible to care for yourself, even with a job, a family, community obligations and even during cancer.
Don’t worry, we give you prompts to re-connect with what fuels you. We also give you:
a worksheet to set self-care goals
guidance on setting a schedule
a safe space to release your excuses
an area to begin to re-write your story
Make YOU a Priority
This is a great exercise to do with the whole family! Remember that your children may not know how to fully express their emotions and therefore may spend too much time in an unhealthy line of thought or fear. By practicing healthy self-care, you can now guide the whole family through gaining clarity on how to best care for their own mental health.
You can print as many copies as you need and maybe even block gratitude time as your family time.
You can get started right away, simply download the Self-Care Planner now.
As always, this is meant to be a conversation. We’d love to hear from you. Tell us what this gratitude has done for your outlook and your family. We would love to share in your wins. Drop us a comment or to reach us directly, email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org
