Here are 3 ways to master your mindset and sideline your stress:

How about throwing dinner in the slow cooker while you're at work. We're not talking multitasking here. This is working smarter, not harder.
  2. Embrace your imperfectionnone of us get everything right EVERY time. Sometimes you may miss a deadline, or forget to pick up dinner...or the kids...not that I've ever done that. Regardless, embrace it. We make mistakes, we survive, we move forward. If we can't change it, we don't gain anything from continuing to focus on it. So what do we do? We move on to #3...
  3. Practice Self Compassionthere are several things to know about self compassion. Be kind to yourself and allow time for bumps in the road that derail your best laid plans. Acknowledge that you're human! We're all going to need time to recharge – don't let it be an afterthought! Taking care of the caregiver means we can continue caring for others.

Use these 3 tips to regain control and get headed in the right direction. And don't give up!
