( - There are four main types of physical activity: aerobic, muscle-strengthening, bone-strengthening and stretching. Each works to keep your body trim and healthy in different ways. Get a well-rounded work-out this week by incorporating each of these four types of activity. Start by researching some steps online,or chat with a fitness expert or doctor.

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.

You can find more Caregiver Monday tips each Monday on Facebook and Twitter. For more resources, check out the Caregiver Monday Resource Kit.
