On the Sixth "Day and Way" of Caring for the Caregiver
~ Take a Break Every Day~
Previous posts have addressed the importance of taking care of yourself as a caregiver, but it is certainly easier said than done, especially when your entire day is focused on caring for the needs of those you hold dear.
One of the easiest things you can do when planning your day is to find ways to incorporate mini-breaks to focus on yourself. They don't have to be long or involved and can be spread throughout the day to ensure that you are not only getting enough time for yourself, but that these breaks are not interrupting your required daily routines.
Visit the Newsline for some suggestions as to how you can work both the time and the break into everyday life without giving up or imposing upon your important care routines.
