Area Agency on Aging Presents
Mindful Self-Compassion for the Caregiving Journey
with April Hadley, LLMSW
Wednesdays – August 9, 16, 23, and 30, 2017
1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Mindful Self-Compassion is the practice of offering kindness to yourself in the midst of difficult experiences. It provides a foundation of emotional strength and resiliency. With self-compassion, you will begin to motivate yourself with encouragement, forgive yourself when needed, accept your shortcomings, and care for others while caring for self. Research shows when caregivers practice self-compassion, they experience increased emotional well-being, lower levels of anxiety and depression, more satisfaction in personal relationships and are more able to sustain healthy habits such as diet and exercise.
