When you spend the kind of energy that it takes to take care of a loved one with mental illness, you'll need a way to recharge.
If you push yourself to the breaking point you won’t be able to show up the way you want to or have the patience to stay calm in a heated moment.
Finding an outlet for your stress can be anything that you do regularly to clear your mind and recharge. Some common things might be exercise, yoga, meditation, a relaxation ritual or creative hobbies.
How well are you doing now on having an outlet for recharging?
