You know how the instructions for an emergency on an airplane tell you to put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping someone in need? Well, this is true for caregivers too! You cannot be the best caregiver if you do not take time to care for yourself.
As a caregiver, you are performing a stressful, physically demanding and emotionally demanding job. Exercise will help deal with this stress, as well as prevent injury. It is important to incorporate regular exercise into your routine.
