Six ways to stay healthy when you’re stressed

Everyone deals with stress…at work, home and in our personal lives. Many people get so wound up with stress that they neglect the healthy things that should be done for themselves every day. Sleep, the right foods, and exercise are especially important. While I’ve never had a problem in these areas (especially eating), I hope these ideas will help at least one of you.

Feel free to comment on what makes you stressed, and how you dealt with it!!

How Can You Avoid Repetitive Behaviors in Autism?

Repetitive behavior is something that Alex does daily. More especially with numbers and phrases…almost to the point of getting angry if he thinks we don’t hear him. We have tried, and still trying to break this cycle. It does get irritating and monotonous, but we never want to start tuning him out. He does show a lot of social skills and independence in some areas, so we don’t want to discourage that, either.

When Is The Right Time For Hospice Care?

End of life is something no one likes to discuss, and don’t usually plan for until they have no alternative. It is certain, at least to me, that you can’t really plan too far ahead, because the details of the hospice care can vary with situation.

Outing With Alex 11-11-18

Today was our first osampo (outing), that didn’t involve tickets, platforms and trains, in a few months.

It didn’t take much coaxing either, and I was happy for that. All I had to mention was “bicycle”, and he was game! At first, I assumed that I would be peddling him around Kawagoe on my bike…but he surprised me by pulling out his bike!

As you can see, I got a good workout, trailing along behind him. He showed some mercy today, and didn’t make me RUN.

Let’s see if this happens again next Sunday.
