Tell Us: Why Is Relaxing So Difficult?

This morning, on Today on Your Caregiving Journey, our Monday morning podcast, we talked about weight gain during caregiving. That conversation led to a discussion about relaxing and how challenging it can be to relax during caregiving.

We shared different reasons for why it's so hard to relax: We have too much to do, too many people need us, we worry we're being irresponsible if we don't, we feel the constant pressure to fix.

I'd love to know why you may have a difficult time relaxing. When you think about sitting and taking it easy, what do you do instead? When was the last time you had a chance to relax?
