Caregivers spend most of their time indoors caring for their loved ones where it is dry and warm. They also must take time to care of themselves and not feel isolated, stressed, burnt out. Here are three winter survival tips.
1.) Stay Active:
Accept a friend’s request to sit with your loved one so you can go out and do errands, or take sometime to walk in nature and meditate on the calming yet invigorating effects of just breathing fresh air!
2) Stay Hydrated:
Staying indoors in a warm dry climate can be very drying and to maintain optimal health you must consume water it is a huge benefit for your body’s cells, tissues and organs.
Most rule of them suggest you should drink at least half of your body weight in ounces each day. Consume quality filtered or bottled water.
3) Steal a “Me Day”
Take time to treat yourself by doing a social activity that you enjoy or a day of pampering or attend an event that is especially designed for the caregiver in mine to help you restore and regroup
