#70 | Results from 8th April

Here are the results from yesterday’s Mobilise Moments poll.

Time for yourself

Yesterday we asked: Have you managed to get sometime for yourself in the last week?

We know from previous Mobilise Moments that aside from financial support, respite is top of the list of things we would like!

Last week 15% of us said that this wasn't possible and 38% could only grab a moment. The comments submitted through the 'other' option made for interesting reading. Some of us noted that although they had some time to themselves, as they were still 'on call' it wasn't the most relaxing.

It's great to see that 37% of us were able to get a good chunk of time, hopefully enough to recharge a little.

If you're able to find some time this week - why not take on an activity? Here's some ideas from our community:

- Take to writing

- Explore art and colour

- Start scrapbooking

- Read one of the seven books every carer should read

- Engage with nature

And if you like a jigsaw puzzle - don't do it with this guy around!
