30 November 2017 Finding A Special Gift For the Caregivers In Your Life

by Jennifer Scott

Caregivers have one of the hardest jobs imaginable.  Whether paid or volunteer, they bear an emotionally heavy load.  It only makes sense that they would top a giver’s list during the holiday season, but finding that perfect gift can be cumbersome. This is especially true when the gift carries with it a message of understanding and appreciation for the caregiver’s sacrifice.  Here are a few gift ideas to help you show the caregiver in your life just how much you care for them.

1. Massage Therapy & Bodywork

Making sure caregivers get time to relax and destress is incredibly important, especially when that person doesn’t get paid.  If you want to give your caregiver a chance to decompress during or after the holidays, consider massage and bodywork options. Massage therapy services come in a variety of forms referred to as modalities.  While there is sure to be one that meets the needs of the caregiver in your life, consider their comfort level before purchasing a specific service. One to consider includes Swedish massage, which is the most common type of massage therapy.  Others, like acupressure, reflexology, and deep tissue, are design to address specific needs.

2. Spa Services

If your caregiver isn’t comfortable getting a massage, consider the alternative services available at a spa for pampering they are sure to enjoy.  If you aren’t close enough to the caregiver to know their preferences, getting them a gift certificate that will cover massage but can be used on any service, like facials, manicures and pedicures, or styling, is a great option.  If you are still unsure, consider purchasing a gift card for a national chain like Ulta Beauty, so the caregiver can elect beauty services on their own or purchase their favorite products instead.

3. Subscriptions

Caregivers are often so busy caring for the needs of their charge that they sometimes impose the same dietary restrictions on themselves for the sake of time.  Meal subscriptions like Blue Apron and other delivery services can make preparing wholesome, delicious meals a snap.  If meals aren’t appropriate, consider other types of subscription services, like wine, cosmetics, or magazines.  Really, just about anything your caregiver enjoys is available as a subscription at whatever price point your budget allows, and it will be a gift that will continue to give throughout the year.

4. Adult Activity Books

While massage therapy and spa treatments are obvious ways to help a caregiver relax, they aren’t practical activities for every day. Those spending a significant amount of time monitoring your loved one may enjoy simpler ways to destress and pass the time while your loved one is resting.  Consider things like adult coloring books, activity books, crossword puzzles, and sudoku.  These offer an element of lighthearted fun to the caregiver’s day without a significant time commitment.

While these options are all great ways to show the caregiver you care and can help them relax during the holidays or year to come, they may not work for everyone. Gift giving is a very personal activity for both the giver and receiver. If you find that none of these meet your needs for one reason or another, just remember to stay focused on helping your caregiver relax, and don’t overthink it. Regardless of the gift you ultimately choose, the show of appreciation for the sacrifices they make will shine through to the recipient.

 


Another highly effective and lasting tool one could give to the caregivers in our lives, is the gift of stress-control, healing and rejuvenation. By using scientifically based breathing and meditation exercises, our Éiriú Eolas program offers exactly that. It is available for free on our website, with the option of purchasing it as a gift for your loved ones during this coming holiday season.

10 May 2016 May & June Éiriú Eolas workshops in downtown Vancouver and South Surrey

The first Vancouver class will be held on Friday May 20th at Yoga on 7th – a beautiful heritage building at 156 E 7th Avenue, a block north of Broadway and Main. Class begins at 7:30pm and goes to 9:30pm. Two other classes will be held on June 3rd and 17th at the same location and time. In these 2 hour workshops we will be discussing the science of stress, how it affects the organs and nervous system, and how certain breathing techniques can influence our physiology to counter that stress and create a sense of relaxation in a hectic world. We can actively strengthen our body’s innate ability to heal and rejuvenate through practicing these techniques. Hope to see you there!

8 June 2012 Meditating helps teens with high blood pressure: Study

June 7, 2012
Toronto Sun

Regular meditation can help decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease in teens who have high blood pressure, a new study has found.

Researchers at Georgia Health Sciences University had 62 black teens with high blood pressure meditate twice a day for 15 minutes. A control group of teens with high blood pressure didn’t meditate. The study found the teens who meditated had a lower left ventricular mass — an indicator of future cardiovascular disease — than the control group, researcher Dr. Vernon Barnes said in a release about the study.

“Increased mass of the heart muscle’s left ventricle is caused by the extra workload on the heart with higher blood pressure,” Barnes explained. “Some of these teens already had higher measures of left ventricular mass because of their elevated blood pressure, which they are likely to maintain into adulthood.”

Barnes said the meditation, even though it was only for 15 minutes each time, was like a period of deep rest.

As a result, the vasculature relaxes, blood pressure drops and the heart works less,” he said.

The study says one in 10 black youths have high blood pressure.

“If practiced over time, the meditation may reduce the risk of these teens developing cardiovascular disease, in addition to other added health benefits,” he said.

The study appears in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
