Just as you take care of your family-in-flux, as a Sandwiched Boomer, you also need to nurture yourself. Pay attention to your own needs and work to fulfill them.
Practice what you know about being resilient. Recognize how your character strengths support what you do. Integrate your core values and personal ideals into how you view the world. Release tension through laughter and soon you'll be able to watch yourself begin to bounce back.
Honor your body by taking notice of what makes you feel better, both physically and emotionally – pay attention to your exercise routine, what you eat, your sleeping habits and what gives you pleasure. Reduce the situations that cause stress and increase the ones that make you feel more relaxed or alive.
