Pacing

Learn to pace yourself. Pacing daily activities is one of the key tools to self managing your pain.

You need to begin to pace your work and also other everyday activities.

Did you recognise yourself from the pain cycle? Do you tend to over do things, or rest too much and become inactive and lose fitness?

Pacing in short is: taking a break before you need it throughout the day. But how can you remember to pace yourself?

Remember the old saying, "How do you eat an elephant?"

Answer: One bite at a time! Pacing is carrying out activities one bite at a time and not tackling all of them at once!
