As a caregiver, you have worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life among seniors. However, it is important to realize that your own health is the tool to quality caregiving, and without it, the quality of care suffers along with it.
Probably one of the most important aspects of self care is exercise because the benefits gained from it is immense. From positive effects on all systems on your body to improved strength to stress relief, simply finding the time to exercise regularly can help bring you the necessary energy to handle the daunting tasks of caregiving. If you are lacking in motivation, try to find a friend to exercise with. Moreover, to avoid boredom, find at least 2 to 3 enjoyable activities that you can rotate to keep you interested in the routines. Finally, be sure to pair your exercise with good nutrition at home to compliment your hard work!
