Taking Care of Yourself while Caring for Others, Part 2
Today in Part 2 of this post, we are talking about women as caregivers. How do we care for ourselves when we are so busy caring for others? Do you need some practical ideas on how to do this in the midst of a busy schedule? We’ve got some for you. We discuss
- How to fit in a quiet time including our favorite books and apps
- How to add movement/exercise, even if you only have 10 or 15 minutes
- How to get more fresh food in your diet
- How to deal with pain
- How to come to terms with a new normal
- How to accept that we can’t do it all
We know that women don’t often put themselves high on their priority list. But, if we’re going to have the energy to care for others, we need to also take a bit of time to care for ourselves. See the Resource section below for a few of our favorite suggestions.
