Creating a crafty mess while scrapbooking....
2. Move within your limits. Physical activity can be out of the question for a lot of people with chronic health conditions. It is important to move within your capabilities. Try hydrotherapy, or go for a walk around a plant nursery, or a park, or your lounge room, with your support person. Maybe yoga or pilates will suit you, or a gentle session with a personal trainer. Always check with your doctor first, but just because you can't do some things, doesn't mean you have to totally stop moving. It will be good for your health and your mind.
3. Change your location. It is very easy to get stuck in a rut, staying in bed or on the same couch, day in, day out when you are sick. When you can, try to spice it up a little! Go and sit on someone else's couch. Go away to your favourite nearby location with family or friends, such as the beach, and rest in the place that makes you feel positive. Leave the stir crazy feeling of being in the same room day in, day out and enjoy a few days healing in your happy place. Invite friends over for a cuppa in the garden, but be open about your time limits and your need to rest. Take a blanket to the park.
