Every Day: Set An Intention For Yourself.

‘Be A Healthy Caregiver’ on Blog Talk Radio 

On Tuesday’s ‘Be A Healthy Caregiver’ Blog Talk Radio Show, my special guest was David Levison from ‘Get2BFit’ in Fort newlogoLauderdale, Fl.  David and I talked at great length about the importance of getting into a routine the centers around our personal health and well-being, along the importance of having a good body image.     Yet one of the comments from David that stood out the most was simply this:  Every day:  set an intention for yourself.

As caregivers, we often take a back seat and never ‘set and intention’ for ourselves: I think David is on to something sunset_yoga_girlshere!    Often time as caregivers, our intentions are completely focused on our Caree.  To set an intention for ourselves seems scary, but…it is the right thing to do.  Setting an intention keeps us on track, allows us to focus on our needs, while making us better caregivers, too!
