Bouncing back tips

Jul 14, 2016 12:13 PM

I have fibro. When I overdo, I know I'll pay for it the next day or two - but with kids, summer, family vacations and reunions, I'm finding it difficult NOT to overdo. What have you found that helps you bounce back faster?

Sometimes I just need to take time to be alone and by myself and remember that I can't do everything. Aromatherapy and Music can be more helpful for me than I expected. I find it's easier to try and stop myself from overdoing things rather than trying to recover from it afterwards.

Like SoreAndSleepy said, taking a day to rest. Pamper yourself! Hugs & prayers you get through it, as school will soon start again! 😉💕🙏🌸

I am also going to add another voice to the "moderation" front. It is MUCH easier to remind myself that I cannot do it all and keeping up with everyone all the time and that my health, safety and sanity are more important than pleasing everyone. Good luck.

Mindfulness meditation, even just 1 minute can be helpful.
