The holidays are here once more, time to spend with family and friends.
The holidays can be stressful though, especially for Caregivers.
Self-Care Tips for Caregivers during the Holiday Season
Get enough Rest:
Try to make sure to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
2. Eat and Drink Healthy
It’s important to eat nutritious meals throughout the day for energy and
drink plenty of fluids. Avoid sugary and processed foods that will weigh you
3. Exercise at least 3 times a week
Exercise releases endorphins. Taking a brisk walk at least 3 times
a week is beneficial for both physical and mental health.
4. Take Breaks Throughout the Day
Caregiving can sometimes be all-consuming, so it’s important
to take breaks throughout the day. For example reading a book, listening to music or just sitting quietly.
5. Lean on your loved ones
Lean on your loved ones when you’re feeling stressed or anxious.
Reaching out to your support system will give you a better outlook
and help you feel grounded.
