Written by an Artist & Caregiver
Hello! My name is Emily Lupita. I’m an artist & writer, now a full-time caregiver for my two young sons, Charlie & Archie. They are both diagnosed with nonverbal Autism and other exceptional needs.
I also have a family member in long-term care. My mother suffered a catastrophic brain bleed / stroke and remains paralyzed on one side. She lives in a residential rehabilitation center with 24 hour care.
In this newsletter, we’ll talk about Creative Self-Care. All good things for lifting the spirit and caring for ourselves while caring for another person (or people). It’s a mix of important mental health info + creative exercises + resource links + art.
Creative self- care is for caregivers of all types. Everyone is welcome to join us. If you find yourself taking care of children, siblings, or elderly family members…or any other caregiving situation…I hope this newsletter will be useful & fun for you.
Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and the website. We do a group check-in and self-care creative activity to center us. Plus, I share links to music, videos, and articles I’ve found helpful on my caregiving journey.
I also share my newest artwork made from each post’s activity…like this one about the Window of Tolerance.
