I'd like to start a open discussion for all us care givers to type out little things we do each week that is helpful to ease the care giver stress and avoid burnout. We may just give and get good little tips and advice. I'll go first: each week I take time for myself by watching a movie I wanted to see, a manicure, go to lake and feed ducks and walk!! Just a few things I enjoy!! Walking each day is a great way to relive stress and depression.
