Who says these word.
Besides the standard list
- good comfortable walking boots,
- plenty of dry socks,
- plenty of food & water
Remember to make sure, you have a good bed,
You need to have a good comfortable bed.
So you can get a good nights sleep,
Before you can be of any help to someone else?
Stop for a moment…
& Think about that statement.
Without you having a good comfortable bed, you won’t be able to help anybody else!
You may be thinking/worrying about not having a good nights sleep, moving uncomfortably or whatever else.
Not being able to take care of the other team members needs, when challenges come along.
If we’re not ok, we can’t care for anybody else.
So it’s important as Caregivers to ask yourself 2 questions:-
- Are you ok today?
- What 1 thing can I do today to discover how to be more OK in your life!
Create a great day!
