“I’m so stressed out right now!” has probably been on the lips of every caregiver and truth be told, perhaps every person that has needed care as well.

As caregivers we know the importance of self care. Yet we also understand how hard it is to find time for ourselves while we are trying to care for others. We know it’s not easy to carve out time for our own PCP or Dental appointments, so much of the time we neglect ourselves at the risk of our own health. So what do you do?

Well, we HAVE to make ourselves a priority because when we don’t then  not only do we suffer the consequences but those we care for do also. When we are down, who steps in to care for them?

I know! I know!

Been there done that!

Ahh but there is good news, we can take moments to reduce our stress.

We’ve included some tips in our 365 Caregiving Tips Book Series that include, just start off by taking a breath. Sometimes we forget to just breathe properly.
Do something fun for yourself, a few minutes of kitchen dancing to your favorite song , blowing a small bottle of bubbles outside in the sunshine, petting a cat or dog or even a fuzzy blanket, mindlessly kneading some silly putty or even the latest fun craze “slime” .

Yes, I said slime.

Sounds ewwy and gooey but this isn’t. It’s actually a wonderful sensory object not only for touch but for smell as well. It can come in many textures and scents that can help reduce stress while you’re having fun playing. Slime is just fun and I had the pleasure of getting my hands on some over the summer. 

So how do I convince you that Slime is fun and relaxing?
