Caregivers: Are You Taking Care Of You In order To Take Care Of Others?

elderly couple 1

15 Tips for reducing stress and promoting health for family and friends who providing the caregiving:

 

  1. Take a break from caregiving.
  2. Make a date to go to the movies, take a walk, meet a friend for lunch. Everyone needs to get out of the house once in a while.
  3. Do something not related to caregiving.
  4. Get support. Attend a support group, have a friend you can call just to let off steam and complain.
  5. Depression is treatable. Talk to your doctor about it. Or seek counseling.
  6. Practice communication and behavior management skills if you are caring for someone with dementia.
  7. Relax. Read a book, meditate, pray, garden, knit, get a massage, take a long bath.
  8. Take care of your health. Go to the doctor, get routine exams and flu shots, get enough sleep and eat your fruits and vegetables.
  9. Change “guilt” to “regret.” Guilt means you did something wrong, regret is that you are in a difficult situation and sometimes you have to make difficult decisions, but they are not wrong.
  10. Forgive yourself — often.
  11. You cannot be a perfect caregiver, all day, every day.
  12. Laugh. Find ways to keep your sense of humor by sharing a silly story with a friend, watching a funny show or movie, or join a group to try laughter yoga exercises.
  13. Exercise. Walk around the neighborhood. Or even better, recruit a friend to walk with you.
  14. Sign up for an online or in-person yoga class. Join a Zumba class or line dancing class.
  15. Ask for and accept help when offered.
  16. No one can do this alone.

Isn’t it time you finally enjoyed life and let someone else handle the rest?

Today’s lifestyles are far too hectic to get everything done yourself. The idea of being a superhero adult is simply a fantasy. The reality is you work hard for what you have, and your free time should be spent recharging your batteries and enjoying your life. That’s where CC Home Concierge Co. comes in.

A concierge is much more than simply an assistant person. It’s someone who is a home manager, home organizer and an organizer of time, a person who fully understands that you work hard and has very little time to take care of all the non-priority tasks that take over your To-Do lists.

CCHC services are personalized to your specific requirements, and ultimately end up saving you both time and money.

How To Organize Your Spring-Clean

Spring makes everything New Again

I love when Spring arrives, I open all the windows in the home to let the sunshine & breeze in and Winter’s dirt & dust out!

My  Deep-Clean Checklist works well for going through the home to check off those areas that take a beating every winter season; entry ways, downstairs & hallway half baths, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and floors.

Now, that you have a plan of action, you need to gather your tools and equipment for the project.

Mine & Martha’s favorite Natural Cleaning Products

“I’m not here to reinvent the wheel – just tweak it!” that’s what I did with 2 of Martha’s recipes. I have been using my own solutions + Martha’s in my home for the last few weeks, I will post the outcomes with the recipes in a future post with pics, along with how to store them properly.

The two resources above will help get you started on your way to breathing fresh air back into the home!

How To Organize Your Life Without Feeling Overwhelmed

Clutter is not just the stuff all around you

Do you sometimes feel like you don’t know how to organize your life?

Most people look at their clutter, feel tired and overwhelmed, and then go back to ignoring it as the piles get larger and larger.

They think let’s ignore it because it has become unmanageable plus it’s an easier choice. As the piles grow, they feel more overwhelmed, more exhausted, more stressed. But for a variety of personal reasons, they choose to ignore it still.

Soon, they pay money to warehouse the clutter somewhere, toss it all without giving it any thought, or live with it because they’ve developed a hoarding situation. Hoarding is a clear case of not making decisions, because it’s too emotional, too hurtful, or you just don’t know where to start.

Most people give up before they begin because organizing their space feels and looks like such a huge job. The trick is to take the overwhelming feeling out of the process. We do that by focusing on taking one step (zone=area of home or office) at a time:

  • Pick a zone to start with, such as closets.
  • Select one item of clothing at a time and choose whether or not you still like, use and need the item in your hand. (I say to myself “have I used this is the past 6 months?)
  • Choose a Home to keep that item and place it there.
  • Repeat these steps with the next zone.

Figure out what’s important to you. Is it your health and well being, happiness, family, work, friends? Awesome! Knowing what’s most important to you is a valuable tool in helping you get and stay motivated to organize your life without feeling overwhelmed.

As always, if you require additional support and guidance, hire a professional you feel comfortable working with. You can contact Cheryl @ CCHC for a free 30 minute consultation to help you get started with your organizational journey.
