This week Travis is excited to be joined by author and family caregiver, Linda Abbit, founder of Tender Loving Eldercare (a vibrant online community providing information, support, and inspiration for family caregivers), about her brand new book, The Conscious Caregiver: A Mindful Approach to Caring for Your Loved One Without Losing Yourself. Linda provides tips, techniques, and strategies for caregivers in reducing stress and avoiding burnout, including using mindfulness techniques, checklists, and how to practice self care every day, so caregivers are better equipped to be there for their loved ones in need. Join Travis and Linda this week discussing the journey of caregiving without losing yourself.
Dave Markowitz, Intuitive Healing Facilitator, Guide, and Bestselling author says that most of us were never taught how to healthily deal with the gift of being Highly Sensitive. We had to unconsciously devise systems to make certain situations more bearable. And some of us consciously applied methods that seemed effective but still left us facing our very same challenges all over again. And the ineffective short term patterns we developed to preserve ourselves can actually make us chronically unwell. Dave has worked with thousands of HSPs, fine tuning their empathic abilities and teaching how to not be a sponge of others’ energies and how to heal what you’ve already accumulated. On this show Travis talks with Dave about his remarkable work!
