What do you really know about #caregivers?
Did you know there are more than 40 million Americans caring for a family member or friend? Many of them are working a full-time job (or more) while also dedicating 20-40 hours a week* as a caregiver for a family member, friend or neighbor. There are a lot of assumptions made about who caregivers are and what they do. As a caregiver myself, and through my work with caregiv [...]
The #MindfulSocial podcast with @mckra1g
My guest on Mindful Social this week is Molly Cantrell-Kraig. Boy, does this woman have a story! She's been through the wringer a few times in her life, yet she's managed to do so much more than survive, she's thrived. Her new book Circuit Train Your Brain- Daily Habits That Develop Resilience is such a great read. You know by now that one of my favorite topics is resilience an [...]
Work doesn't have to suck #Mindful Social with @JasonLauritsen
When you ask someone about their experience in the world of work, what kind of stories do you hear? Many of us go to work and come home feeling stressed, less than enough, exhausted. Friday is looked forward to. Monday? Not so much. I really enjoyed chatting with Jason Lauritsen this week about his new book, Unlocking High Performance, and his work with leaders, working to [...]
Care for Caregivers- Stories We Tell Ourselves – A Workshop
We caregivers can be very, very, hard on ourselves. We tell ourselves the wildest stories and sometimes we believe them without thinking. Stories like: ”I can’t handle this”, I’m not good enough”, " That person is just trying to make me feel bad”, and the classic “I can never do enough!”. Maybe that’s because of stress, exhaustion, emotional overload, or [...]

He’s been through quite a lot on this journey and has dedicated his life to helping other family caregivers learn how to take care of their loved ones as well as themselves.

Give a #Caregiver a break - #WhenLifeHitstheFan
As a caregiver and an entrepreneur, I know only too well how overloaded we can be. The most common refrain I hear from caregivers is "I don't have time to take care of myself". The thing is, if we don't take time to care for ourselves, everyone suffers, including those we care for. When I wrote "when Life Hits the Fan" it was the beginning of a journey to help caregivers learn [...]
Employee Benefits Programs Missing the Mark?
In a recent report from the Harvard Business School (The Caring Company) less than 25% of employers say that being a caregiver impacts the performance of employees. Wow, that’s simply obtuse when over 80% of employees surveyed said that caregiving had impacted their performance. 20% of those interviewed stated that being a caregiver hurt their careers. My own experiences wi [...]
Life is going to hit the fan. So what can you do?
Every single person in the world either has experienced or will experience terrible loss and hurdles to overcome at some point in their lifetime. These things can be terrifying, even emotionally or psychologically disabling. The stress can make us more rigid and prone to injury and illness, and unable to deal with even the smallest obstacles. Something as tiny as not being ab [...]
