Do something for yourself

Being a Caregiver requires much needed me time. If you are to the point where you feel like you can not go on any longer. Or you feel tired and drained. Then chances are you’re not taking care of you! It is okay to go to the movies, take up an exercise class. Or maybe just to get away for the weekend. Whatever you need to do to feel refreshed and refuel, do it. It is a must when taking care of others. I know sometimes you may feel guilty for even thinking about doing something without the person you are caring for. But you must ignore those feelings and do something for yourself. If you do not take the time to do something for yourself, then you will become even more frustrated. Which in turn will cause you to take your frustrations out on the person you are caring for. Please believe me when I say, do something for you! It will make all the difference in the world as far as YOUR well-being is concerned.
