How Expensive is Caregiving to Your Health Part 10

So is Caregiving expensive to your health?

You can set yourself up for an unhealthy future with caregiving a Loved One?

Care givers are so busy caring for other people, they can put their own health at risk, due to health behaviours &  choices which can cause higher rates of poor health, sooner and later.

25.5% of Caregivers between 45-64 are more likely to binge drink.

Caregiving can bring additional stress, worry & burden. Without caring for your own health needs.

It can be very expensive in healthcare issues.

Taking small steps, every day can help you avoid them and bring more balance into your life.

  • Do you take timeout quiet time to think everyday, meditate & pray?
  • Do you set realistic goals for your life regularly & carefully?
  • Do you always eat carefully a good balanced diet?

If you are experiencing any stressor due to caregiving or life, remember talking to someone as a sounding board can help put things into perspective. A doctor or health professional can also help.

Today write down steps so you can manage your life better – so it doesn’t have to be expensive to your own health care, now or later.

Remember you were created to be a human being not a human doing!

 Create a great day!

  1. Wow, I had no idea that many caregivers in that age group were binge drinkers. I guess it makes some sense because people in that age range grew up in an era where we were taught to keep personal problems to ourselves and we weren’t encouraged to speak up and ask for help.
