#5: Take care of yourself.
Watch your diet, exercise and get plenty of rest. Making sure that you stay healthy will help you be a better caregiver.
#6: Manage your level of stress.
Stress can cause physical problems (blurred vision, stomach irritation, high blood pressure) and changes in behavior (irritability, lack of concentration, change in appetite). Note your symptoms. Use relaxation techniques that work for you, and talk to your doctor.
