As a Carer, it can be difficult to put your own needs before others, in particular those you care for.

However, ‘self-care’ is essential for your physical and mental health. If you are in good-shape, you are more likely to view daily issues rationally, undertake your daily duties with confidence and generally feel healthy and approach life with a positive mindset.

However, we know it’s no easy task.

On Care Radio UK, we produce and broadcast regular advice from professionals and more importantly other Carers from around the UK who share their stories of advice and resilience.

To support this advice from Sarah Stewart-Brown, take some time to view this TED Talk by author Guy Winch, who encourages us to take time to take our emotional health as seriously as our physical health.
Guy’s book is entitled ‘Emotional First Aid’ (Plume 2014).
