Show Notes

Being aware of what caregiver season you are in, will help you in many ways.   In this episode we're breaking down each season.  

  • HIGH / RED 

Are you in a low, medium or high this week? 

If you are in that high season right now.  Remember the color it is.  Red means that you may need to stop doing things and prioritize what’s most important.  It may require you to ask for help and most importantly grant yourself grace.  Your focus is in the present.  

If you are in the low, you may be able to take a breath and enjoy yourself more.   

I personally find the medium, the hardest.  Your emotions and thoughts want to be in low and you tend to be hard on myself.  When you're in the middle, you have to shift and adjust more.  

As you enter your day and week, my hope is that you assess where you are at.  That way you can realistically be at your best.   Your caregiver stress will be different in each season.  Your self-care will look different in each level.   

It’s a constant learning process and an awareness.   But you can make choices for yourself in each season.
