As caregivers we give so much to others that we forget, or more than likely feel that we don’t have time, to give to ourselves. It is so vitally important that we take not do this. Taking time for ourselves is not a selfish act. In fact, it is the most selfless act we can do. If we do not take proper care of ourselves, we cannot properly care for others. This point is so important that I will say it again. If we do not care for ourselves, we cannot take care of others well. A great analogy is how our hearts function. It first pumps blood to itself, then, once it has been appropriately nourished, will the pump blood to the rest of the body. To that end, I invite you to browse this page. I hope you find it useful.
