Self Care Week reminds us to practise self-care for life

Making small changes makes a difference…

There’s always more we can do to look after ourselves and next week’s Self Care Week is asking us to do just that.

With the theme of Practise Self Care for Life, the Self Care Forum is encouraging us to make small changes to our lifestyles that will help us to look after ourselves and our families.

This could be what we eat and drink, how much sleep we are getting or trying to get some work life balance, which can be a struggle for many. By making small changes self care could become a good habit !

Looking after ourselves can also help us cope with the challenges that come our way and in the NHS that could be the coming winter months.

If you need support with how to make those little changes, speak to your pharmacist.

They are there to help you and can offer lots of advice and support with minor conditions and some medical queries.

Pharmacists can also suggest where you can get more advice and help for your particular need.

Remember, NHS 111 can also be a good resource for health advice on issues which are not life-threatening.

And the NHS website has lots of information on what steps to take to look after you and your family.

The Self Care Forum also has some useful fact sheets you might like to download.
