Has fibromyalgia left you feeling behind?

Introduction:

While we certainly DON”T have to work that hard anymore as our ancestors did, planning your days with specific tasks allows you to put your energy to the things that matter to you. 


has fibromyalgia got you feeling left behind?

I was at the grocery store. My daughter had to push the cart because it took too much energy. That was all I could do that day and I was exhausted! Tomorrow I’ll try to clean the house, I told myself.

Hey Fibro Girl!

There was a time- not too long ago- that I could only do one thing in a day. Whether groceries, tidying up or going to an appointment. Maybe that’s you now?

You might have a to-do list that’s a mile long with barely enough energy to just think about it, let alone getting it done. Yeah, I was there once too. But not anymore.

1. Scaling Back

Making the choice to scale back my to-do list and then to plan my days was so helpful for me to get stuff done AND feel good about it too. That meant that I:

💜Chose to do less each day

💜Lowered my standards and expectations

💜Said NO a lot to unnecessary tasks and outings

💜Set a timer for 10-15 minutes and stopped when it went off (even if it meant finishing another day) *Although you’d be amazed at how much you can get done in a short amount of time😉

2. Doing Less, Getting More

By scheduling and planning my days and setting up a weekly plan I actually had the energy to accomplish everything I needed to and more - without pushing myself too hard. (For example: I do groceries on Friday, laundry on Saturday. I’m also well enough now to add house cleaning to Friday, but it wasn’t always like that)

Planning your days means getting more stuff done that’s important to you and doing less stuff that doesn’t matter.
