At Home Yoga/Meditation

Taking a “timeout” for yourself when you are a caregiver is not an easy task. But finding just 10 minutes a day for some yoga or meditation can be very beneficial for a person’s overall well being.

People are not always conscious of the massive amount of tension they hold in their body and it is said that a small amount of yoga can:

– Reduce stress and help depression
– Improve sleep quality
– Enhance respiratory function.

Yoga or meditation can be done at home. Here is an article about a study correlating caregiving and yoga/meditation. Also, here is video for at home yoga that may help you get started!

Remember to make time for yourself, your loved one depends on it!
