Tag: Energizing Tips in Bloom

As family caregivers and health and human services leaders...


At our low energy points of the day, we may seek a vending machine for a yummy boost of energy.  Or, we may store a selection of candy in a special drawer.  In my case, it is a chocolate cabinet.  


I always keep chocolate on hand and carry candy with me to share.  I treasure bringing a smile to the faces of others with such a simple and delicious treat.


My mantra is to "Put Chocolate in Your Pillbox."  Although I am a fan of the real thing, the mantra is a metaphor for something much deeper.  The idea is to determine the activities that bring you the most joy and dose yourself regularly with them.  As a caregiver, it is so important to do things just for you so you can sustain yourself during the caregiver journey and develop the passion and purpose for your life beyond caregiving.


Practice Tip:  Take a few moments to determine a fun activity that would boost your energy.  Go to your calendar and schedule the activity now.  Then, do this at least once per week so you put your special chocolate in your pillbox and fill your calendar with activities to look forward to.  If you need a little motivation to get you in a joyful mood for planning, I recommend that you turn to the original candy man, Sammy Davis Jr.  You can access this classic does of musical motivation by going here.

 

Energetically yours,

Michael
