Tips For Caring For Your Body

Did you have health problems before you became a caregiver? If so, now it’s even more important to take care of yourself. Also, adding extra stressors to your life can cause new health problems.

You may feel too busy to think about your own health. But taking care of your body gives you strength. Then you can take care of someone else. Be sure to tell your doctor if you notice any new changes in your body.

Keep up with your own health needs. Try to:

  • Go to all your checkups
  • Take your medicines
  • Eat healthy meals
  • Get enough rest
  • Exercise
  • Make time to relax
