Steps To Stay Well This Winter

There are so many considerations to think about over the winter months, while fighting the urge to go into hibernation mode.

If you are in a caring role, the list increases further! Which is why we are running our Winter campaign: Steps to stay well this winter. We want to help you simplify winter care into three easy steps: Prepare, stay connected and self-care. We hope that if you follow these three steps, you will emerge on the other side with a ‘spring in your step’.

Click the buttons below to explore the three steps:

Have you heard the saying ‘By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail’? Of course, no one wants to fail, so to help you triumph during the winter months, we have formulated a ‘prepare’ checklist:

At CSWS we truly understand the importance of staying connected. We are developing ways to cut through the current restrictions with new ways to encourage connection. There is real benefit in connecting with others who understand what you are going through. Social connection has been shown to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

CSWS forms part of your social support network. We have a friendly team who you can turn to in both good times and perhaps not so good times. As one carer put it: “From my experience with Carers Support I feel I can get support when needed. It makes me feel I have an extended family”.

CSWS offer you different forms of support depending on what you feel you need most at that point in time. Watch this video to find out more about our services.

Research has shown that caring can have a significant impact on health, with carers often finding that both their mental and physical health are affected. So, it is vital you take steps to look after yourself and remember, self-care is not being selfish. Self-care is about deliberately doing activities to foster good mental, emotional and physical health.

Let’s take a look at some of the small actions, with big effects, you can add into your daily routine to help keep up your winter spirit.
