Taking a break
Breaks are vital for your wellbeing and quality of life. A break could mean:
- meeting friends
- pursuing a hobby
- having some time for yourself
- going on holiday
Make sure you get a break regularly, even for a few hours. Use these breaks to enjoy an interest, relax or socialise if you can, rather than do chores like grocery shopping.
VOCAL's video below describes the difference a short break can make to a carer.
To find out more about different short breaks and respite opportunities for carers, please see the page on short breaks.
