Having the ability to find a quiet place to de-stress is so important to mentally recharge. Thank you for being there for your mom when she needed you most, she was so fortunate to have you <3

***FIND a space OUTSIDE where you can CLOSE YOUR EYES for at least 5 MINUTES and CONCENTRATE on LISTENING to the BIRDS "talk to each other" WHILE taking SLOW, DEEP BREATHS. {This "mini-vacation" will help you "escape" from any situation and "ground" yourself again.}***
Before my Mom lost her battle with Lung Cancer, I spent 9 months caring for her 24/7. Seven of those months were spent in the hospital together where I would try to take her outside at least once a day so BOTH of us could "DE-STRESS" together. Even though we were surrounded by people & buildings, we could ALWAYS find one little area where we wouldn't be in anyone's way, including behind the hospital by the cafeteria loading dock! Mentally it helped BOTH of us to keep "fighting " the cancer and gave us something to look forward to every day.

I meditate from time to time. I want to be regular with it, but I forget when I get busy with things that need to be done.

If you have an Alexa, you can access meditation programs that offer guided meditations, or just meditative music with a timer.  It's easier to begin with a guide. Or, just try it for one minute. And breathe!

There is a Shambhala Meditation Center at 2030 Sansom St, Philadelphia, PA 19103. They are a friendly group. You can check out their calendar, I think you will like it.

My local library offers a program that allows a person to view free five films a month, the program is called Kanopy. Along with popular entertainment movies they offer The Great Courses, I am watching Masters of Mindfulness. I have only viewed the first three lessons out of the 22 lessons in the series, and they are very interesting. I have meditated for several years, but I am always open to suggestions on how I can improve my practice.

On a side note, my daughter teaches fifth grade and they teach their students mindfulness.

I do it all the time. I focus on my breating (and watching where I am going/stepping). When my mind wanders I just bring it back to the breath.
