Elizabeth Shaffer: Caring For Ourselves So We Can Help Others

When we take care of ourselves, we are better prepared to take care of others. The show’s guest today is Dr. Elizabeth Shaffer, an occupational therapist at Therapeutic Innovations International. Dr. Elizabeth talks with Karen Pulver and Goddesses about how parents can care for their special needs kids without overwhelming themselves. The key is to STOP: stop, take a breath, observe, and perceive. When we STOP, we can examine how we can deal with stressful situations in a more productive way while protecting our own mental and physical health.  Dr. Shaffer uses Western and Eastern medicine to look at things more holistically. Being able to let go, surrender, and more mindful of our actions will help us to be better parents while helping the children as well. Catch Dr. Shaffer in this episode as she expresses her love for creating tribes for people, like the Goddess Tribe, to connect, learn, and grow.Love the show? Subscribe, rate, review, and share! http://gratefulgoddesses.com/
