Imagine if there was an easy, convenient resource to help family caregivers get the information, support and help they need to cope with this unplanned role they’ve been given…Clinicians and family caregivers, this is for you!

For my newsletter subscribers, I’m sharing tips from each of the 10 Topics covered in the HUG Kits as we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the launch of the HUG Kits, here is the second HUG Kit Topic from the 10 part video series and downloadable guidebook on “Oxygen.”

The goal for this chapter topic is: Getting your oxygen mask firmly in place. Like what I did during my two years of being a digital nomad. You may be wondering why this is necessary when it is your loved one with the eating disorder that is in dire need of help. Feel free to check out my blog post on getting your oxygen mask firmly in place.

How might you give yourself permission to consciously make a plan for putting your oxygen mask on?

Need help on getting started on your self care plan? You can see ideas on my YouTube Channel .

If you’re still feeling stuck, you may want to consider joining the weekly online group support that I lead each Wednesday on Zoom Video.

You may find it helpful to ask yourself these questions: What’s stopping you from feeling selfish about self care? What will get in your way? What/Who will support you in making this big SHIFT HAPPEN?

Some of you have asked if I’m still providing coaching. Yes, both referral partners and I are still here providing one on one coaching and I still lead the weekly and monthly group support calls.

Many families are not able to access those options. To make the support more accessible to more folks at a very reasonable rate, I created the HUG Kits and launched them in 2019!  Families can buy them directly from my website and if clinicians wish to provide them for the families of your clients, you can easily provide them as an Affiliate for no cost to you the provider and at a discount to your families.  My info is all at the bottom of this email.

The HUG Kits provide 3 powerful resources to help family caregivers become a calm, compassionate, confident caregivers.

  2. Link to 10 Videos – 10 essential, specific, powerful tools for coping.
  3. PDF Guidebook – deepen learning on the 10 essential, specific, powerful tools for coping by writing plans to take action and move forward.
