Our Virtual Book Tour with Amy Sherman yesterday was lively and the questions from our readers all had a common theme. How do I maintain a positive attitude when facing health and relationship challenges – my recent MS diagnosis, constant back and knee pain, the stress of aging, a Father with Alzheimers moving in with my family, the loss of my husband?
Amy’s responses were consistent and right on. While validating each reader’s concerns, she also had practical suggestions – educate yourself about the problem, reach out for support, work on changing your mental attitude, don’t self sabotage, get help from experts, take control where you can, make effective choices.
So take Amy’s advise. As you ease into this long weekend, remember that you don’t have to let your challenges define you. Relax, enjoy your family and make sure to take some time to nurture yourself.
