Prioritize Your Health & Happiness in Caregiving with Elizabeth Miller, Founder of Happy Healthy Caregiver
How do we create time to care for ourselves while we are juggling our caregiving responsibilities?
Today, my guest is Elizabeth Miller, founder of Happy Healthy Caregiver. Elizabeth created a place to feel supported as a caregiver when you feel isolated or overwhelmed by all of your responsibilities. Elizabeth's caregiver responsibilities were elevated when she cared for her mom and dad with chronic comorbidities. Feeling stressed and overwhelmed she decided to learn more about caregiving and how to implement self-care strategies to care for herself. Finding success by adopting and prioritizing self-care, she is sharing her tools with us.
This community of support offers resources for family caregivers, sharing helpful information and partners with businesses to make change in supporting caregivers. Elizabeth is also the host of the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast which celebrates and shares caregivers' stories.
I've admired Elizabeth's work for a long time and I appreciate her willingness to share her knowledge with me. Thank you, Elizabeth, for your support and abundance mindset. Thank you for teaching us all what it looks like to be a Happy Healthy Caregiver!
