Taking care of yourself Good care means caring for yourself too. It can be easy to ignore your own needs, but taking care of your own well-being is very important. Arranging a little time for yourself will enable you to continue to manage your caring responsibilities. If you feel you don’t have any time to yourself, try to find ways to get more rest or a break. Perhaps you can arrange for a friend or relative to give you a regular night off so you can attend an exercise class or activity. This will give you a good opportunity to meet other people and will make a change from your usual routine.
