Caregivers: Guided Meditation for Relaxation and Stress Relief for You
As a caregiver, it's important to prioritize your own well-being. Learn about the benefits of guided imagery and how it can help decrease stress, promote improved health and avoid caregiver burnout with Caregiver Relief's guided meditation CD.
What is guided meditation for relaxation and stress relief?
As a caregiver, I am sure that you have had those moments when you are … frustrated, tired and just wished you were somewhere else. Using the techniques of guided imagery, you can use your imagination to take you to a place of peace and calm. Guided imagery is a mind body technique. It utilizes all the senses with the help of using your imagination. Because of the way the mind and body are connected, your mind does not know what is real, or what is just imagined.
Engaging all your senses, eyes, ears, smells, sights and touch allows you to feel as if you are in that special place.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” — Leo Buscaglia

Guided Imagery will allow you to imagine yourself in a peaceful setting. This will help the stressed out caregiver… relax, relieve stress and even avoid caregiver burnout. The research shows decreasing stress may promote improved health, creativity, and energy levels. It can also help you feel more in control of your emotions and thoughts. This helps improve your attitude, health, and sense of well-being.
When you decrease your stress, you are less likely to make emotional decisions. In fact, did you know that… your responses to your family member with dementia … can actually SLOW their cognitive decline?
We, at Caregiver Relief, realize that you are under a tremendous amount of stress. We also know… by personal experience with our FB senior Caregiver forum, that caregiver stress kills.
Chronic Stress Impacts Caregivers Health Long Term
Every year, in caregiver groups, there is always 1 or 2 primary caregivers that suffer… incapacitating illness from chronic stress. Every year we experience the loss of one or two primary caregivers. It affects our group dynamics. For most caregivers, it is an eye opening experience.
The realization that everything that a caregiver is trying to do… keeping their family member at home, is defeated. The results have been …the dementia patient is placed in an alternative care setting. Some, do not have anyone to advocate for their care after the primary caregiver has passed.
The Caregiver Relief CD was developed out of love and concern for the senior caregivers . It was developed specifically for the caregiver.
I hope you will take time… everyday … to make yourself a priority. Incorporate stress management techniques in to you everyday life.
