Whether you are caring for an aging parent, small children, or just yourself - everyone can use time for themselves to regroup and recharge. One way that I like to recharge is with a short yoga practice during the workday. Stacey Shipman of Let It Flow has a great 10 minute Yoga At Your Desk podcast which will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face the rest of your day.
Because of the physical and emotional stress of caregiving, caregivers need to make sure they take care of themselves, too. As they say on airplanes, you have to put on your own oxygen mask before helping the person next to you. So think of this practice as putting on your own oxygen mask and breathe!
