Consider your body to be an automobile. It will run reliably and well with the right fuel and regular maintenance. If you neglect its upkeep, it will begin to cause you problems. Don't add to the burden of your caregiving responsibilities by suffering from preventable health issues.
When you're busy caring for a loved one, it's tempting to forget about your own health. Keep all of your doctor's appointments and check-ups. To properly care for a family member, you must be in good health.
Exercising is the last thing on your mind when you're anxious and fatigued. However, you will feel much better thereafter. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and improve your mood. On most days, set aside at least 30 minutes—or break it up into three 10-minute sessions if that's more convenient. Exercise enhances your energy and helps you battle exhaustion when you do it on a regular basis.
A daily relaxation or meditation practise can reduce stress and increase feelings of happiness and well-being. Yoga, deep breathing, progressive muscular relaxation, and mindfulness meditation are all excellent options. Even if it's only for a few minutes in the middle of a hectic day, it might help you feel more in control.
