Tips for Coping with Caregiver Stress

Posted on November 21, 2016 at 2:40 AM

 

Being a caregiver of an individual with a disability is a rewarding, yet difficult job! It can become stressful and overwhelming. Sometimes you just want to give up and other times you're upset with yourself for thinking about giving up. Below, I have listed coping skills for dealing with caregiver stress. Please take what you need and comment your thoughts!

 

Pray

 

Meditate

 

Hire an interim caregiver occasionally

 

Exercise

 

Get enough sleep

 

Repeat positive affirmations daily

 

Talk, talk, talk--Talk to a friend or family member about what you're experiencing

 

Continue to engage in your hobbies

 

Consider counseling services (counselors are not just for mental health services, they can assist with goals and planning)

 

Join a peer support group (in person or virtually)

 

Adapt healthy eating patterns

 

Journal (use stationery or via cell phone)

 

Counter negative thoughts--when a negative thought about your responsibilities comes to mind, replace it immediately with something positive

 

 

Remember, you have an extremely important job! Yes, it's stressful, but you're not alone :)
