Many people with a Neurological disorder or Chronic health condition, find that they can no longer do all the activities in a day that they wish. When working with clients we get them to appreciate that they need to pace their activities (Something that over my rehab period I have also had to do).
What is Pacing?
“a way of increasing your activity level without stirring up your fatigue/pain or other symptoms such as dizziness too much”
Aim: to maintain an even level of activity throughout the day instead of doing as much as possible in the morning and then resting all afternoon.
When we don't do this we can get in to a cycle which is unproductive which we call the BOOM/BUST cycle.
