As the Holidays Approach, Pace Yourself
The craziness of the Christmas season is upon us. There are extra demands on our time and stresses that can negatively impact our fibromyalgia symptoms. Anything from shopping to baking to entertaining. There are Christmas parties, caroling, and other events that can quickly sap your energy and lay you up for days afterward.
It’s especially important to pace yourself through the season. For example, I took two days to decorate our Christmas tree. Even with my husband’s help, I just don’t have the energy to do it all at once. I wrap one or two gifts and then I have to lay down. I don’t have the energy that I used to for the holidays, and I’m guessing you don’t, either.
