15th to 21st November 2010 is self care week.  The Department of Health are promoting the benefits of self care all over the country.

Self care is looking after yourself in a healthy way, whether brushing teeth, doing exercise or taking medication.

If you have a long term condition such as diabetes or arthritis you may need to consider making changes to your diet, different types of exercise or different types of medication to take.

Self care means staying active by doing things that are important to you, such as gardening, seeing friends and family, going on holiday and continuing to work.  It involves looking at what you can do and want to do rather than what you can't do.
