Help for Caregivers: 3 Simple Self-care Tips to Help You Be a Better One!

It is no easy task to care for someone. Whether it's a child, an elderly parent or a patient, here are three simple tips that may help!

  • Be mindful of your physical and emotional feelings.
  • Take time to yourself. Practice deep breathing to ease anxiety, take a walk to get your blood flowing and improve circulation, and tap into your five senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) to orient to the present moment. This will enhance your self-awareness, spatial awareness and ability to “live in the moment.”
  • Get moving! Find something physical that you enjoy doing. If it is enjoyable, then it will be easier to incorporate into your routine and it won’t cause added pressure or stress. Examples may be dancing, exercising, yoga, meditation or even painting.
