There’s Health In the Stillness and Quiet
From YOUR CAREGIVER MINUTE With Peter Rosenberger.
Noise bombards us every day. From 24-hour cables news, to traffic, to our mobile devices, we are inundated with a wall of noise that seems to keep so many of us in a state of agitation. For Caregivers, taking a moment to sit quietly and settle our hearts down seems nearly impossible, but it’s critical for us to just that.
You see, if we don’t take time for stillness, we’re going to have to make time for illness. The constant state of anxiety, stress, and sensory overload we experience as caregivers will eventually make us sick. Stress kills. The way we push back on this is to carve out some time where we can just be still and quiet. Prayer, meditation, or just clearing our frenetic thoughts; it all helps re-boot our minds and hearts and allows us to be a little calmer in the caregiver storm we navigate.
