Being a caregiver can be challenging and stressful at times. It's easy to lose our cool when we are juggling multiple responsibilities and dealing with tantrums and meltdowns. But the good news is, there are simple steps we can take to practice mindfulness and stay calm in the midst of chaos.
In this blog post, we will share some practical tips on how to keep a cool head when everything is chaos. We will start by focusing on our physical body and how to release tension and stress.
