Give a #Caregiver a break – #WhenLifeHitstheFan

Janet Fouts

As a caregiver and an entrepreneur, I know only too well how overloaded we can be. The most common refrain I hear from caregivers is “I don’t have time to take care of myself” The thing is, if we don’t take time to care for ourselves, everyone suffers, including those we care for. When I wrote “when Life Hits the Fan” it was the beginning of a journey to help caregivers learn how to use mindfulness to take better care of themselves and others too.
