How to Deal with Stress
How are you doing?
The work that you do is fulfilling and rewarding. But it comes with stress. Making sure that our senior population is safe and cared for is one that requires your full attention, a sense of caring, and very often, your heart. We understand and take our professional responsibilities seriously, too. There are lots of nights that we lose sleep but when we provide peace of mind for a family at a stressful time in their life, we wouldn’t change a single thing.
April is Stress Awareness Month. It is a gift, an opportunity to take some time to be still and reflect upon the stress levels that we are experiencing. While stress is something that can be helpful and protect us in the short term, chronic stress can impact our physical well-being.
Self care is never selfish. One way to try to manage stress is by practicing gratitude. Remind yourself each day of specific things that you are thankful for. Take a mental inventory or jot down a few before you go to sleep to reinforce the good things that are happening in your life.
One thing that we are grateful for is our relationship with you. We look forward to working with you again soon so please take care of yourself.
