The new year is always a good time to reflect on the past year and strive to do better. So if you’re a family caregiver, now’s the time to create healthy resolutions ? especially if the past year of caregiving has left you overwhelmed and stressed.
Though you may be tempted to not do it because new year’s resolutions often fail, there’s no harm in trying. Even if you just do one or two of the suggested new year’s resolutions for caregivers below, it’s better than doing nothing.
Here are some smart and healthy resolutions you should consider this year.
- Perform your caregiving duties well but always prioritize your health and well-being. Eat healthily, exercise regularly, relax, and sleep more.
- Spend more time doing things that you love. Take a time off your duties. Remember, you are a person that needs care too.
- Ask for help and be willing to accept help. If you don’t have a family member available to help, consider getting respite care in Georgia.
- Plan what you will do for the future in case you’re no longer able to care for your loved one.
