5 Tips for Military Caregivers during the Holidays

first_imgThe holidays can often be a time filled with many emotions for military caregivers, ranging from thankfulness and joy, to stress and frustration. Overwhelmed with daily responsibilities of providing care to our service members, the holidays, as special as they may be to us, may leave us vulnerable to stress.The following tips for military caregivers are suggestions for this holiday season as you spend time with your wounded service member and family and friends.1. Share your wish list of caregiving duties. The gift of asking for help can be even better than material objects. Talk to family and friends and get them involved in some of your caregiving activities. Ask if they can provide respite care for a few hours, run errands, take your service member to the doctor, or help out around the house.2. Recognize signs and symptoms of burnout. During the holidays your caregiving duties may become more heightened than ever. Your stress level can reach an all-time high as you try to juggle caring for your wounded warrior and getting ready for the holiday festivities. Before long you become burnout and robbed of your energy and experience a full blown emotional breakdown. Recognize these emotions or signs and symptoms of burnout and identify outlets when you begin to feel stressed.3. Anticipate holiday triggers from your service member. The holidays may trigger stress or unhappy memories for some wounded service members. Be mindful and acknowledge their emotions as well as yours. Service members may feel anxious with large holiday crowds; they may even bring on negative emotions because they are no longer able to accomplish or participate in things they once were. Stay focused on the positive, and thankful they are with you this time of year.4. Simplify holiday activities. We all imagine the holidays full of bright lights and food and drinks of every variety, but it may be less stressful if you scaled back a bit to simplify, while still enjoying the holiday festivities. Set limits. If you are baking for a feast, chose foods that are simpler to bake; eat out or order a prepared meal.5. Start new holiday traditions. Depending on your service member’s injury, you and your family may not be able to participate in as many holiday activities as you once were. As a caregiver, you are learning to create a ‘new normal’ and change is inevitable. If you are unable to travel to see family and friends or attend holiday parties, try using technology and setup a video visit.This post was published on the Military Families Learning Network blog on December 1, 2014.last_img read more

Sarri We could have won better

first_imgMaurizio Sarri feels Chelsea could have won better but lost a bit of focus that allowed Brighton back into the match on Sunday.Sarri’s men ran away 2-1 winners over Brighton thanks to goals from Pedro and Eden Hazard but Italian manager Sarri wasn’t too satisfied with the manner of the victory.“I think that we could have won better,” Sarri said as cited by team talk.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“We played very well for 60 minutes. We conceded a goal when we were in full control. In my mind it was clear in that moment that we had to suffer in the box, we are not a physical team. I tried with the substitutions to have more of a physical presence.“When we have the feeling to be in control of the match it is dangerous for ourselves. The first situation in our box in 30 minutes, I think we were a bit unlucky. When we are sure to be in control of the match.“Complacency? I don’t know.”last_img read more

Hodgson praises Palaces Schlupp

first_imgThe 26-year-old winger has been playing very well recently with Crystal Palace, and the team’s manager wanted to recognize that.Winger Jeffrey Schlupp scored in Crystal Palace’s 2-0 win over Doncaster Rovers in the FA Cup Fifth Round.And thanks to his goal, the team will play in the Quarterfinals for the second time in 23 years.This is why Palace boss Roy Hodgson took some time off to praise his footballer.“He’s been fantastic this season, especially these last games,” the manager was quoted by The Standard.“It was another important goal, his fifth and that’s not bad coming from midfield, playing in a position where he has to do a lot of defending.”“It was a cracking goal, to run from two yards in your own half, hold the ball that long, hold off challenges then strike it as well as he did was a great start for us,” he added.Schlupp is a German-born Ghanian footballer who came out of the Leicester City youth system.He played for the Foxes from 2010 to 2017, with a small loan to Brentford in 2011.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.But he was bought by Crystal Palace on the summer of 2017, where he is enjoying good progress.“We obviously knew if we got past this round, we’d be in a good position to get to Wembley,” Schlupp added.“Of course this is a special tournament and hopefully with the luck of the draw we might get a ‘lesser’ team, if that’s what you want to call it, to have a better chance of getting through.”“But obviously any trip to Wembley is special and hopefully we can do that,” the winger concluded.That winning feeling! 🎉Our Crystal Palace hospitality ticket winner @twitisme had a blast being shown around the ground, having a fabulous meal at Speroni’s restaurant along with the best seats in the house 👍We hope you enjoyed it Wayne! 😃#CPFC pic.twitter.com/WMIuWwsXlZ— Otto Van (@ottovanuk) February 15, 2019last_img read more

Is Publishing Becoming a Minimum Wage Trade

first_imgThe memo received by BNP Media staffers this week alerting them to 25 percent salary cuts for the foreseeable future includes a line that jumps off the page almost as much as that “25 percent” figure: “Minimum wage will be the floor for this reduction.”It’s a line that assures employees the company won’t be cutting below minimum wage (which of course, would be illegal), and only applies to those support positions that may be hovering around minimum wage after the 25 percent cuts. But still, are things so bad that we have to be assured now that salaries won’t be cut to minimum wage? Salary cuts usually start at the top and the Henderson family (who owns BNP) have taken theirs as well. However, an associate editor making $40,000 who is hit with a 25 percent salary cut is suddenly making $30,000. Forget trying to live on that in publishing capitals like New York City-that’s a tough hit anywhere (BNP is based near Detroit).As publishers continue to make cuts to keep their businesses alive, they need to be mindful of labor rules and regulations in their state, particularly with employees below a certain salary level. As Southern Breeze editor Mark Newman noted in FOLIO:’s March issue, many high level employees (particularly editors) need to “stop being figureheads and do some work.” But for those entry and associate level employees, for whom the historic trade-off has always been “low pay but great experience,” the returns are getting harder to justify.  The company leaders who impose these cuts will need to balance their contribution margins against the eventual pushback: The unwillingness of their teams to tolerate major pay cuts even as they’re being asked to do significantly more work. It’s a dangerously narrow line to walk.last_img read more
