There are so many ways that you can make positive changes to your daily life – the smallest of tweaks can make the biggest of differences, radically transforming your life and the life of the person you care for.

About the Author

Sara Challice gave up her career as a graphic designer to care for her husband for 13 years after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Following a stroke, he became bedbound and needed full-time nursing care; due to the pressure, Sara became both mentally and physically unwell. She then found new strategies to regain her health and enjoy life again, even whilst caring for a terminally ill husband. Sara also got involved with local and national charities and became a trustee for the neurological charity INS (Integrated Neurological Services). Since her husband’s death, Sara has been a frequent public speaker, helping transform the lives of carers, their health and wellbeing; she continues to volunteer and fundraise to promote the wellbeing of carers. She is much interviewed for media and podcasts about health and wellbeing
