relaxing spells relieve

Hello everyone , hope everyone who reads this is getting some type of relief from being a caregiver. Caregiving is not for the faint of heart no its not , but we do have to revive ourselves we can't let our spirit , get in such a shape that our heath starts to go downhill, we have to step back & take a breather every now &than. we have too take time for ourselves, take care of ourselves.

What i do i try & meditate , go out in nature &relax get some sunshine , try &enjoy the little things most ppl take for granted , take time go to the library , check out interesting books hey they the library is free , &plus is quite. i do talk to my elderly mom &try &say things that may cheer her up sometimes it can turn into something negative.

She will say i tell her we need to be thankful for what we have other ppl have it a lot worse , i remember one time the other day she got agitated & throwed half a loaf of bread on the floor & said no one cares my sis was in her bedroom , i calmly said. now the birds will be glad to get this bread &picked it up &give it to them.

believe me i had a lot of cardinals red birds eating good that day. Anyway if your elderly parent gets agitated or says something nasty. just calmly. do something like what i did or just calmly walk out of the room. believe me that works now if she wants to chit chat be friendly like mother to daughter talk that's cool ,but i don't like the negativity.

Remember, it is hard to handle elderly. parents. i do believe we are underrated. but we can not underrated ourselves. we are not seraphim angels until god takes us
