Dear Yogi,

I have been working in the healthcare field for many years. My workload keeps getting heavier and my patients need me. When I reach the end of the day I am just exhausted and feel depleted. I want to be there for my friends and family as well. When I climb in bed at night my mind races and my body aches. I love my job but how can I be there for myself as well?

Your friend,

Constant Caregiver

Dear Constant Caregiver,

Being able to care for others begins with yourself. Being aware of your own needs and listening to that inner voice is key.A yoga practice helps you develop the tools to listen to that voice. Nourish your physical body and learn to find some calm in your hectic world. You have a big heart to do what you do, let yoga nourish you. The world needs awesome caregivers like you so take good care of yourself!
