You can’t fix a pipe with a broken pipe.  You can’t have pet fish if you have a cracked fish tank.  So if a caregiver is not at their best conditions, then the quality of care.  Because the job of a caregiver requires you to care for another person, many caregivers neglect to take care of themselves, leading to caregiver stress and burnouts.  Therefore, it is vital to learn about how to avoid that, and befriend yourself like you would for a care recipient.  Some individuals do not know how to love themselves, so here are some tips on how to do that.  Loving yourself could mean taking time to relax, or even exercise to release your stress away.  Moreover, don’t view taking a break as selfish, everyone needs a break.  Take it when you feel like you need it and avoid the unnecessary stress and burnout.  Finally, talk with someone close to you.  Sharing your feelings is key to get through challenges in life.  Since caregiving can be frustrating at times, handle these challenges could me more communication with your best friend, your spouse, or even your fellow caregivers.  If you can learn to befriend yourself, the you can be living a better, and become a better quality caregiver as well.
