How To Support Your Family Through Crisis

It’s time for a personal update! While I usually focus on health education, I wanted to share a bit more about my personal life because that’s where we all get the most support right? The lives of other women battling the same things we are. 

Recently, my dad landed in the hospital. It was a serious deal – respiratory failure, sepsis, the works. Easter plans? Canceled. Instead, we visited Dad in the ICU, hooked up to all the machines – honestly, it hit me harder than I expected.

It’s been weeks of hospital visits, canceled plans, and emotional whiplash. But amidst the chaos, I’ve been reminded of a thing or two. Healing isn’t linear, ladies. And I’ve had to cut myself some slack, dialing down the perfectionism. 

On top of this I’ve got my teens at home. Graduations, orientations, you name it – our schedule is packed tighter than a sardine can. This is a recipe for a cortisol crash, so I’ve had to be very intentional about regulating my nervous system. 

Bottom line? I’ve had to slow down, to let myself feel, and to be kind to myself. Because at the end of the day, I’ve got to take care of myself so that I can continue to keep my family going. 

Here are a few things that I’ve implemented to stay sane: 

  • Protein snacks on the go
  • Legs up the wall pose for cortisol regulation
  • Taking quick walks outside
  • My AdrenalBalance tincture

I hope this has been encouraging for any of you supporting your family during a tough or busy season!
