    Default Take a very good care of yourself.

    1. Take a very good care of yourself.
    2. Take very good care of yourself.

    Hi friends,

    I am a little bit confused about these two sentences. Can I use article "a" or not?
    What's your opinion about my above sentences?

    Source: self made general question
    Thank you

    Do not use "a".
    If you are confused, then remove the "very good" from the phrase, and you are left with "Take a care of yourself", which is more obviously wrong.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
