5-minute Respite for overwhelmed and stressed out caregivers

Posted Nov 16 2009 10:00pm

The NUMBER ONE tip for stressed out and overwhelmed caregivers of brain- impaired adults (e.g., Alzheimer’s) is to take a FIVE-MINUTE RESPITE.

Most of us feel so busy in this rush-rush world, a five or ten minute respite seems doable.

 

Things to do during your FIVE-MINUTE RESPITE

Step away momentarily from the cause of stress.

Go outside: breathe the air; enjoy the view, take a few steps.

Go to another room and stretch. Be sure to breathe deeply.

View a fun and/or inspiring video on YouTube.

Listen to a piece of your favorite music that energizes and gives you hope.
