Tips for Reducing Caregiver Stress

When taking on the responsibility of caregiving, it’s critical to remember your own well-being. Here are some tips to help you keep your stress levels in check.

  • Eat nutritious meals – Binge eating and stress-driven urges for alcohol or sweets are closely related to stress factors in our daily lives. Try placing a priority on getting enough sleep, making time for exercise and eating nutritious meals.
  • Maintain friendships and relationships – Close interaction with friends, family and spouses can play a huge role in overcoming stress. Make time for activities with family and spouses at least once or twice a week – and schedule time with friends a few times a month.
  • Ask for help when you need it – You need support too! Ask close friends or family for help with buying groceries, cleaning your home or running errands if you have difficulty finding time for certain chores. These activities can also double as social activities.
  • Address your feelings – Bottling up emotions can take a toll, which can often manifest in physical issues such as slouching or heavy bags under the eyes. Release those feelings by speaking to a professional therapist or with someone you trust.
  • Say no – Only take on the obligations necessary to your life and well-being. It can be especially hard to say no to friends and family, but often they’re the ones to whom we should be saying no. Don’t feel guilty; your time, health and well-being matters.
  • Relax more – Relaxation is critical to health and the human psyche. Make time for enjoyable activities such as reading, exercise, attending a concert or simply going out for the night on a weekend.
