People in caregiving roles often put their own needs second to whomever they are serving. Feeling overwhelmed can affect our internal systems in ways that compromise our physical, mental and emotional health. Taking time for your own self-care is essential.
In this Circle Up, our guest facilitator, Chia-Ti Chiu, discussed the impact of caregiver fatigue on the nervous system. She shared simple mindfulness practices that one can incorporate throughout the day and tools to support yourself during times of stress at work, in groups and in your daily life.
