How Expensive is Caregiving to Your Health Part 7

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.

20% of Caregivers spend $250 or more of their own money on caregiving.

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 set realistic goals for your life regularly and carefully?
  • ·         Every week do you do your creative hobby?
  • ·         Are you always careful to eat 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. Even just finding a break for a brisk 10 minute walk around the block really helped me cope. It was just long enough for me to take a few deep breaths.

    And because it was only 10 mins, I didn’t feel bad asking my hubby or family member to look out for things. Such a short break – but it really helped me.

    It wasn’t expensive – but it was priceless.
