One study showed that spending as little as 20 minutes outside in good weather boosted positive mood, broadened thinking and improved working memory. These benefits are critical to caregiving which often requires patience, creativity and a good problem-solving.
As any caregiver knows, new problems can pop up daily. Even though exercise also has a positive effect on mood, if you don’t want to put that on your plate right now, the simple act of stepping outside for 20 minutes can offer similar emotional and physiological benefits. Give it a try!
