Checking in with yourself

It’s hard enough to focus on your health when you have to just take care of yourself, but how can you possibly make time to do so when taking care of your caree (a person you provide care for)? Some ways suggested in an article published in 2016:
      • Eating a balanced diet – this can help not only with your nutrition but also with providing you with the healthy energy needed.
      • Getting rest – rest not only allows your body a time to recharge and face the day but it also provides your brain a time to process. Sleep, or a lack there of, impacts emotions, response to stressors, and clarity of mind/thought.
      • Exercise – Even if it is taking a short walk with your caree any movement is better than no movement. Exercise provides our body with energy, strength, and the ability to handle stress.
