Be Still (and Silver Coffee Tables)

July 12, 2014

"Slow down" they all said.

Learn to pace. Learn to be still. Learn to stop being busy.
Plan your day, plan your breaks, don't over do it. Take care of yourself. Find your priority and threshold with looking after yourself and your chronic fatigue. Manage your bucket of energy.

I just don't know how!
