Thank you for taking some time out of your day for some self care. A walk around the block for fresh air, a warm bath or gentle music in the background while you sit with a good book are all methods of self care we can include in our day. For some of us who are caregivers to others, we try to incorporate self care practices where possible. Caregivers could sometimes use a little help! Kigi Agency has sourced two websites which include a lot of information, tips and tricks for helping caregivers who may feel overwhelmed or who need to review their own mental health. We hope you or the caregiver in your life can benefit from this information.
