“Today is Sunday Funday!”
What are you doing for yourself as a caregiver today to make yourself smile or feel good?
What are you doing for the person in your care to make them smile or laugh – even if it is for a few moments? …
It doesn’t have to be an elaborate plan or activity – it could be as simple as:
going for a short walk in the sun (take in some natural vitamin D!)
going to church
picking some spring flowers
dressing up for the day -even if you are going no where!
(it is true, when you look good, you feel good!)
have some ice cream (because ice cream does solve everything and if you’ve ever been in one of my support groups, you’ve heard me say this a thousand times and if you’ve read my friend Gary LeBlanc’s book, “Staying Afloat in a Sea of Forgetfulness” , you’ll find he quoted me – why? BECAUSE IT’S TRUE! lol
It’s the moments that count…..we can’t hope for perfect days but we can create a perfectly happy moments.
I hope you find a perfectly happy moment today
