Remember to Be Yourself
Caring for your loved one is only one of the many hats you wear. It’s important to remember that you are also a spouse, a parent, and a friend. Equally as important, is taking the time to continue to participate in your hobbies, interests, and career. These will serve as powerful tools as you encounter the stress and exhaustion in acting as a caregiver. Taking these actions can also be beneficial in avoiding burn out and serious health problems.
Care for Yourself: Participating in personal rejuvenation and emotional replenishment is essential in your caregiver role. This is a gift that you can give yourself without any sense of remorse or shame. We all benefit from taking some downtime; by seizing the opportunity to take the time to get some relief from our daily tasks and restore our energy levels. Giving this holistic gift to yourself can invigorate you as a caregiver and refresh the love you have for the person you care for. This is a win-win, for everyone involved.
