How to Find The Joy In Being A Caregiver

Does caring for others bring you Joy?  Would you like to have more Fun as you Focus on taking Care of someone else?

How do you think doing this would make you feel?  Close your eyes, take a deep breath in and let it out.  Imagine that as you are caring for someone you are allowing yourself to experience more joy.  Does this also make you feel more energized? Would you like to create this feeling more often, especially as you continue caring for others?

“Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.” 

~Helen Keller

The most important step you need to take is to value yourself enough to take the time to make finding joy an essential part of your day as you care for others.  It takes a conscious decision and a willingness to practice finding joy in the middle of all the routine tasks that come with your role as a caregiver. The more you do, you will be able to clearly know and have the energy for the tasks that need your immediate attention.

“The path of joy involves valuing yourself 

and monitoring where you put your time.”

~Sanaya Roman

By allowing yourself to experience more joy, no matter what you are doing or who you are with, you will be able to uplift those you are caring for as well.  As the Law of Attraction states, “like attracts like” and “what you focus on expands.” Therefore, your joyful energy and a good sense of humor will pleasantly affect everyone in your world including those you are caring for.

“Joy is increased by spreading it to others.” 

~Robert Murray McCheyne

To help you become successful at applying the Law of Attraction to have more fun and experience more joy, especially as a caregiver, you can use this simple process. 

  • Create a list of at least 3 things that you love to do that make you feel more joyful as a caregiver.  Leave space in between to write more about each item.

  • Below each of these things you listed above, write down why you enjoy doing each one.

  • Then put down how doing each one makes you feel.  Be specific.

  • Now ask yourself what stops you from doing the things you enjoy more often as you care for others.

  • Find a way to easily incorporate doing each one of them in your daily routine. Be creative.

  • Promise yourself to have fun doing them on a regular basis. 

  • Leave time to follow spontaneous inspired action that adapts the way you continue to incorporate doing each one

  • Start a Success Journal and keep track of the results you experience from doing this process.

  • Be open to new ideas and ways to find the joy in being a caregiver.

As you regularly practice doing this process, you will have more fun and find more joy as you continue to care for others.  

“There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.” 

~Khalil Gibran

Loving Light and Smiles,

Nada 🙂
