Care Givers
Keep a Journal
Jul 12, 2014 - 9:10:11 AM

( - Start a daily journal this Monday. It's a good way to keep track of your activities even while you're busing caregiving. For example, check in each week to see how your food and fitness choices impacted your weight, stamina and mental well-being. Then consider what you can do to stay successful.

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.
