The First Day of Fall, and Finding Balance

Today is the first day of fall, and one of the most balanced days of the year in terms of sunlight hours to nighttime hours. Which makes you think: Are you achieving balance in your life? For many caregivers, this is a question that is not explored often enough.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I feel energised at the start/end of each day?
  • Do I have enough time to do all the chores I need to do as a caregiver?
  • Do I have enough time to do things for me, like exercise and relax?
  • Is there a balance of stress and happiness in my duties as a caregiver?
  • Do I feel useful?
  • Am I coping well enough on my own?

Take a moment to assess your balance as a caregiver. Take care of yourself!

Happy Autumn.
