Keeping A Daily Journal
Caregivers need to keep a daily journal, especially if you are taking care of someone. That journal should include the care aspect and the coping with life as a caregiver. I would definitely keep a private journal.
Be mindful to acknowledge what you really feel, because we know, you know, and caregivers know that some days are not always full of joy!
There are challenging days ahead, in fact, you are probably struggling right now with an issue or two. Caregivers are so often exhausted that we forget ourselves. This must change. I must change. I must find time for healthy eating & exercise and love what I know about caregiving. So journaling helps me to do just that.
Just try it, it’s very therapeutic and who knows…it could become a book one day! Peace!
