Which commercial do you think of when I mention "commercials"? Do you think of one you see all the time now? One from several years ago? One from quite a while ago -- like how to "spell b-o-l-o-g-n-a" OR "let Mickey have it - he eats anything!"? There are probably several ad executives who are feeling pretty good about now.
There is a relatively new one that has caught my attention: "How are YOU doing?" I apologize because I don't remember which health care facility is doing the advertising but the commercial is to encourage getting a physical and updating vaccinations. I totally agree with the idea - especially as Caregivers. I have been known to remind the primary Caregiver of the need for self care. After all if the Caregiver isn't also taking care of the Caregiver who will take care of the receiver when something happens to the Caregiver?
What I want you to think about now, however, is definitely the need for self care but please include Spiritual care with the physical and emotional care. Take the time to s-t-o-p to rest and re-create while you spend time with God. It may only be a "few minutes" but it allows you to feel God's presence giving strength and guidance. Something to think about.......
