Show Notes

Your core values and beliefs are your anchor to self-care.  Your core values are a testament to your true self because they are what matters most to you when it comes to your personal and professional life - and now your caregiver life.  Your values influence that little voice in your head that tells you whether or not to care about something and how you should prioritize your time.

Your values are the things that you believe are important in the way you live and work and care for your loved one.   They help determine what you truly want out of life while simultaneously acting as the measuring stick you use to tell if you’re satisfied with your current situation and living in a meaningful way.

Core values define who you are while helping you find your purpose, doing your job, and caring for your loved one.  They are your core beliefs.   

  • As you look at your personal-core values, ask yourself if your values affect your caregiving? 
  • What self-value will positively impact your caregiving?  

 Self-care is the practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.

Self-care is personal

is your thoughts and feelings (your self-worth)

is being kind to yourself (your self-compassion)

is growth and taking action (your self-love)

is your beliefs and purpose, who you are (your values)
