Anyone here have any ways they've been able to motivate themselves/their relatives to bathe/shave/exercise more often?

Asking for my uncle, who has been schizophrenic for 20 years. Research has shown cleanliness and exercise to be beneficial to those with schizophrenia and mental illness in general, but he doesn’t really spend too much time on these things and frequently goes a month or more without addressing either. I just found this forum and hoped that some of you might have some helpful insight.

@Romdos, I’d like to encourage you to join our forum for Family and Caregivers that can be found at:

While this is a peer support forum for people with schizophrenia and other closely related psychotic disorders, the Family forum is specifically for people like yourself, who have a loved one they are concerned about.

Also, please let your loved one know about this forum as they may find it helpful.

Best of luck,
