10 Tips how to Pace over Christmas with a Chronic Condition

With Christmas Day just over one week away, have you got everything prepared? If you are panicking about how you are going to make sure everything is ready in time, STOP, take a deep breath and check this post for my 10 Tips on how to Pace over Christmas with a Chronic Condition, to hopefully help ease some of your anxieties.

What is Pacing?

You have probably heard this word mentioned so many times now, you may want to read this post for a detailed explanation on Pacing. Basically, it is about making sure you don't do too much on a "good day" when you have energy and then nothing on a "bad day", you need to make sure that you take short breaks in between activities in order to recover and avoid "Boom & Bust". When you have a chronic condition you want to try and get everything done when you are feeling well, as you never know when you will have another good day, only to find that you make yourself worse and then need days to recover. Does this sound familiar? I think we all fall into this trap at some point.

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year but can be stressful as society puts a lot of pressures on us especially as there is so much to do, with presents to buy and wrap, cards to write, decorations to put up, arrangements to make. How can you do all this with a Chronic Condition? Check out my 10 Tips on how to Pace with a Chronic Condition.
