Caring for carers

Time for yourself

    • Order a take away as a treat
    • Watch your favourite TV show
    • Read a book or magazine
    • Book a holiday
    • Go window shopping
    • Go to the cinema or theatre
    • Go out for a meal with friends
    • Meet friends for a drink
    • Join an exercise class or club
    • Take up a new hobby
