6 Ways to Keep Your Brain in Gear as a Family Caregiver

Senior Care in Darien CT

Senior Care in Darien CTAs a family caregiver, it's easy to feel sometimes that you're pulled in way too many directions. That can lead to forgetfulness and a feeling of overall fogginess. If you suspect that there's a physical cause, definitely talk to your doctor.

Reduce Your Stress Levels

Stress is a huge cause of feeling as though you're constantly forgetting something or that your brain just isn't working properly. If you're not managing your stress levels now, you definitely should be. Keeping them under control helps to resolve a lot of issues for family caregivers.

Exercise More

Exercise is great for your body, but it's really good for your brain, too. When you're exercising, your brain can work through other issues. On the physical side of things, exercise gets your circulation going. That means not just to your whole body, but also to your brain.

Start Writing Things Down

Often people think that writing things down is a bad habit or a sign that someone has bigger problems. In reality, writing things down that you need to remember keeps your brain free to do other things, like think. Once everything is out of your head and on paper, you don't have to hold onto it.

Keep a Journal

Journaling your day is a great form of stress relief. It can also help you with memory issues because you're able to go back and process some of the things that happened during the day. When you do that, you're less likely to keep mulling them over constantly.

Get More Sleep

Your body needs plenty of sleep in order to keep itself going. When you're deprived of enough sleep, your brain can't function the way that it needs to. Try going to bed even a few minutes earlier for a few nights and see if anything changes for you.

Eat Healthy Foods

Your diet influences more than you think in both your body and your brain. Start adding healthy, whole foods to your diet. If you're not sure what you should be eating, make sure that you talk to your doctor to get a personalized recommendation based on your current health.

Don't forget to give yourself time away. If you're worried about your elderly loved one, work out a schedule with his senior care providers that gives you the break that you need.
