Caregivers… need self-care too

Caregivers can suffer serious compassion fatigue, overwhelm, stress, and burnout. In fact, according to the National Cancer Institute (a division of the U.S. National Institute of Health), “…caregivers experience a complex array of powerful emotions that may equal or surpass those experienced by the patient during diagnosis and treatment.” (1)

A cancer diagnosis ripples far and wide, touching family, friends, and beyond. We cannot overemphasize this enough: Your self-care is not a luxury, it is essential to successfully navigate this unknown cancer journey!

With Loving Meditations, you will find relief from the stress, connection with those who understand and support you, and self-care tools to revitalize yourself instantly.

Recharge. Revitalize. Renew.
Here’s your action plan.

Your first step is to grab the Loving Meditations App now. Get results from your first meditation experience. Built on the foundation of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) practices, our App delivers whatever you need in any moment—inspiration, rest, relaxation, assistance with sleep, clarity, unwinding, or even a good cry.

Imagine this scene: You’re tired, overwhelmed, and in need of a recharge. While your loved one is receiving treatment, you collapse into a nearby waiting room chair… then remember your Loving Meditations app. Just what you need, and you completely forgot in the moment of being exhausted! You pop in your earbuds and see that the next meditation is “Self-Care Self-Love Experience.” Bingo! Within minutes, you are uplifted, energized, and ready to go again.

Since joining the Loving Conversations Facebook group, I feel that I am more able to be more of a present and loving caregiver to my husband. Thank you for all the great support I have received from everyone over the past several months!
