When I get out in nature my body relaxes. A walk in the forest or a stroll on the beach restores my spirits.
Caregivers need a way to unwind. Our bodies need to recover from the watchfulness and tension that go along with looking after a loved one. But caregivers are often housebound. They (we, because I have done this, too) rarely have the luxury of driving to the ocean or taking a hike in the mountains.
To approximate the calming and restorative powers of being out in nature, relaxation tapes, nature programs on PBS, or these nature videos could be the next best thing.
