How you can help a caregiver
Kids and concussions. How to care for your child's concussion, by Brainline. #youthconcussion #concussion
Your child was seen today for a concussion. Use this article to help you watch for changes in how your child is feeling or acting, and to help your child feel better.
For those recovering from concussion symptoms the holidays can be overwhelming. So here are a few tips to help you enjoy this holiday season: . 🔹️Set Boundaries and Expectations ~BOUNDARIES are "what's ok and what's not ok" for your emotional/physical wellbeing. Start by becoming aware of symptom provoking activities and identify what you are able to do and for how long(ish). Then set the EXPECTATIONS of your loved ones (and you😚) for what you are ABLE to do. Ex: your family expects you to stay 2 hours late to clean up but you know you won't make it past dinner... state what can be expected from you while supporting your health. . 🔹️ Incorporate Quality Rest ~Well placed quality rest helps support the brain from becoming overstimulated or "crashing." Quality rest may include meditation, breathing, brainwave entrainment or quietly resting in a low stimulus environment. . 🔹️Be Mindful of High Stimulus Environments ~The more the brain has to process, the faster it fatigues during recovery. This applies to physical environments and giving energy emotionally. Try to spread out high stimulus activities and set yourself up for success by opting for: •quieter spot vs right by the music •natural/low light vs fluorescent/flashing lights •face away from the chaos vs standing in the middle of it •smaller easier conversions vs a big group . 🔹️Discuss Planning and Pacing with Loved Ones After you have identified your boundaries and expectations, discuss how you will plan and pace the holidays with your loved ones. This will further establish your boundaries and expectations as well as set you up with a game plan for a successful holiday. Many don't understand how taxing social events can for the brain. Clear conversations prior can limit frustrations on both sides. 🔹️Choose Activities that Bring Joy What fills you up? While managing physical symptoms is important, it's also important to feel emotionally full while moving through the rehab process. So give yourself permission to enjoy time with the people you love when it serves your overall well being. 🧠I hope you find this helpful! Happy holidays💋 . . . 👇Share YOUR tips for navigating the holidays below ... See more
