The Body Keeps the Score
What belongs to me? What belongs to someone else?
Bessel van derKolk from Joanne
What do I need in order to do what is asked of me and what I have said yes to?
Our life depends upon our serious use of self-care
Research shows that 10 mins of breathing (8 deep breaths per .min - deep, slow) will lower BP for the day. Slow, paced breathing.
Coherence breathing suggested by Joanne - 6 breaths/min. If you can breath, you can do yoga.
we don't have bodies - WE ARE bodies
Caregiving has two whole people participating in it
Good self-care is sustainable.
Self care is practiced in community, not alone
We have responsibility to monitor ourselves and initiate assistance if we see a problem.
