( - Headaches, indigestion, loss of appetite, muscle tension, sleep issues and allergic reactions could actually be signs of caregiving stress. Give yourself time to pause, consider the situation and breathe deeply when you encounter these signals. They're helpful steps to finding the cause and limiting these symptoms in the future.

Write down any unresolved symptoms that you experience this week, along with the situation that may have sparked them. Then consult with a professional who can help you develop better coping strategies.

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.
