( - Many times stress is the result of little things that are left unresolved while you're busy giving care, like scheduling medical visits, doing paperwork and other household concerns. These tasks can hang over your head, making you tense without your realizing it.

Sit down this Monday, write a list of things that have piled up, then come up with a time line to complete these tasks, so you can feel in control again.

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.
