We all have good and bad days. If you have a bad day or an asthma attack take some time to recover before you restart your goal planning and self management. You will soon get back on track.

Reflect on how well you have done and focus on the positives. Small steps will still get you to your goal. No point in worrying about things you can’t do.

Get help when you need it. Family and friends can be very supportive once you explain to them about self management and how you are trying to change how you do day to day tasks. They can help to build your confidence and help you to overcome obstacles.
