As a caregiver, it is crucial to take care of yourself and be in a healthy & positive mindset. However, it can be difficult to find the motivation to care for someone when they might not show their appreciation or not be cooperative with you. If you are feeling down, isolated, or frustrated, do not let negative thoughts get to you. Affirmations can be one tool you can use to change your mindset from negative to positive. 

Affirmations are phrases that you will say to yourself to inspire you, motivate you, and increase your self-esteem. 

Positive affirmations help you create more of an optimistic mindset and minimize the effect of negative feelings. Affirmations are proven to reduce overall stress and restructure your neural pathways to be more positive. As you repeat and tell yourself affirmations, you visualize and empower yourself to take on whatever comes your way.
