As caregivers, it is easy to get overwhelmed with all the things we need to do, and all our emotions, that we forget to be in the present moment.
In this “Breathe Your way to Mindfulness” session, caregivers from CAL spent a Saturday morning at the Sports Hub learning how to practice mindfulness on a daily basis, using movement and breathing exercises tailored to their dominant stress response (fight, flight, freeze, fawn).
Facilitator Ming Li taght participants how to regulate their emotions when they are triggered or during a crisis, using their breath to pause mindfully before taking conscious action. Through simple meditation techniques, participants also understood how they can be compassionate to others and themselves in this journey.
The caregivers were highly engaged throughout the session and walked away with a better understanding and appreciation of themselves.
Mindfulness refers to living in the present moment in a non-judgemental way. It involves paying attention to our thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations without getting caught up in a constant spiral. This helps to create a sense of calm and awareness that allows us to better manage stress and emotions.
Mindfulness practices are varied and can include paying attention to your breath or sounds, while also allowing distractions to come and go without engaging with them.
As caregivers, we are often stressed, caught up in guilt for not doing enough or overwhelmed by our caregiving duties. How do we better care for ourselves?
Join Ming Li, co-founder of exhale, for an introduction to the basics of mindfulness through body and breath-centred techniques. Come with an open mind and learn how you can live mindfully in the present.
