Try to eat healthy food even when you’re busy.

It’s easy to forget to take care of yourself when you’re busy supporting someone with cancer. But it’s just as important.

Caregiving is stressful, and you may be too busy to look after your own needs. So ask yourself—

  • Am I getting enough exercise and being physically active?
  • Am I eating a healthy diet?
  • Am I getting enough quality sleep?
  • Am I staying hydrated?

After treatment ends, your role may change, and you may find that’s a good time to follow the recommendations for good physical health.
