It’s All About That Sleep!
Sleep. You must have it. At least 5 to 7 hours a night. You really need more. This is a time when your body rejuvenates, heals, and restores problem areas within.
If you don’t get your sleep as a caregiver, you could easy pass out, feel lightheaded, and experience unnecessary agitation. Sleep is important, but many caregivers are simply sleep deprived. We get up and down with our loved ones, we sleep lightly and are easily awaken with the least of noise.
Personally, I don’t sleep as sound as I used to since caring for mom. I can hear her when she goes to the bathroom, coughs, or talks in her sleep. I can tell a difference when I am rested or not! Sleep helps us all to function and go forward another day!
Get your sleep, please!
