Don’t Forget to Breathe

posted in: Hospice Care | 0

One of the main purposes of this website is to keep self-care up front and center as you move through your life and work.  As you may already know, one of the biggest regrets at the end of life is not enjoying life more while we can.

Even though the basis for taking care of hospice patients and grieving families is through empathy and compassion, sometimes it becomes all too easy to forget your own needs when the physical and emotional demands leave little room for lunch, much less time to indulge in quiet reflection and renewal.

One of the remedies to avoid feeling spent at the end of the day is to manage stress, and even the simplest measures add up to a lot. The Mind Body Connection and Everyday Relaxation Techniques will help you understand the basics of stress, how it works, and how to incorporate techniques throughout the day to keep yourself centered, focused, and calm.  Many of the suggestions are simple shifts in thinking, keeping in mind that there is no separation between the mind and body.   The more you practice, the easier it gets and the better you feel.

The images of tranquility with inspirational quotes on the home page are a purposeful reminder to nourish your own health and well-being.  When you visit this site (affectionately called hospiceaidehub.calm) we hope you will take a moment to find peace and serenity in the sounds, scents, textures, and surroundings you imagine when you look at them.

If you don’t have time to go on a break, we’ll bring one to you.
