We can all use a bit of reminder to take care of ourselves. Sometimes a bit of time away with others who really “get it” makes a difference. It brings us back to inner reflection, to remember that our day to day strategies for helping take care of others needs to be something we do for our own body too.
If you are a woman looking to get back to caring well for yourself, take a peak at this unique retreat opportunity.
This Retreat Program was designed by two Registered Nurses (type 1), a chef/author (type 1) and a psychotherapist (type 2) who have diabetes, to help women with diabetes to integrate extraordinary self-care techniques in their day to day lives. They are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, and grandmothers who have honed the skill of caring for others. Be it in the workplace or at home, they cook nutritious meals, care physically, emotionally and financially for loved ones and yet, often, find little time to care deeply for themselves.
If you are a woman who has struggled to remember to test your blood sugar or take your insulin or medication, gain adequate rest or exercise, eat well, and if you feel overwhelmed or misunderstood, this Self-Care Retreat was designed specifically for you. Research shows that stress elevates blood sugar and makes it harder to manage. Our Retreats focus on learning useful ways to manage stress and manage your blood sugar as well as the other myriad elements of the challenge of diabetes self-care.
These Retreats are unique. All of the Presenters have diabetes!
They are deeply aware of the specific challenges that women with diabetes face each and every day. They have some special tricks and techniques up their lacy sleeves that may enable you to take care of your loved ones and yourself too.
