Holiday Stress Reduction for Caregivers
AGE of Central Texas will host the free “Holiday Stress Reduction for Caregivers” support seminar with clinical psychologist and expert on caregiving and chronic illness, Dr. David Zuniga, on Saturday, December 1st, at The AGE Building, located at 3710 Cedar Street in Austin.
Caregivers play the most pivotal role in the lives of the persons they care for, but often prioritize others’ needs above their own. This is even more true during the holiday season, when there is extra pressure to make sure everything is “just right.”
Research shows, however, that incorporating mindfulness-based practices into daily routines reduces stress and helps persons feel more emotionally balanced. Dr. Zuniga will sample some of these mindfulness-based practices in this hands-on, practical, experimental workshop.
