It’s thrilling for parents to see their teen’s light up when they imagine their future careers, and your teen might be interested in a caregiving profession. Whether you work in the caretaking industry or not, it’s important that you research how your teen can get involved with the various occupations that might appeal to them. Your support can help your teen decide if caregiving is the right industry for them, or how they can use their talents to make the biggest impact. Here are some tips to help inspire your teen to learn more, and hopefully take the next step to accomplishing their dreams.
Caregivers are the most selfless and caring people in the world, however, they most often tend to forget to take care of themselves. When someone we love is in pain, we focus on them. It’s natural and it’s what caring people do. However, when we ignore self-care, we increase our risk of burnout and we are more vulnerable in the face of physical and mental health problems. Not only that, but no one has unlimited resources so it is important to fill your cup if you want to have more to give. With that in mind, let’s look at some self-care habits that can help you stay motivated and energized to care for others.
