(HealthNewsDigest.com) - Good health should always top your priority list! Thankfully a few minutes here and there are all it takes to bring balance to your busy life. You can stay fit by getting off the bus a stop early, taking the stairs whenever possible or walking to a coworker's desk instead of e-mailing. Make eating right easy by scheduling a weekly supermarket trip, planning out your meals and bringing your lunch to work.

Write down the behavior changes you make this Monday and see how many times you can repeat them throughout the week. Each step may seem small but the results will add up quickly!

Why Monday?

Monday is already a part of our weekly cycle and can serve as a recurring reminder each week to take a break. Monday also has special significance as the beginning of the week. In a survey done by Johns Hopkins University, most people reported that they see Monday as a day for a "fresh start" and a day to do something good for their own heath, such as schedule a doctor's appointment, exercise, start a diet, or quit smoking.

As a caregiver, you put so much love and energy into caring for others. Remember each Monday to put that same love and energy into taking care of yourself.
