I found this wonderful post on Honor Yourself Now. It’s for everyone, not just us chronically ill peeps. There are some things you may have to adjust depending on your abilities.
For example, I can’t exercise. But I can couch dance to something silly on the TV, I can sometimes go downstairs, or just walk around the room. That’s moving it for me, I’ll even sing in my head – “You’ve Got to Move IT!” (don’t you love that song from Madagascar?
I do try to laugh each day, really I don’t have to try, my husband and I are pretty silly. That’s a big for me. I believe in not being too serious about things all the time. Seeing the levity in a serious situation has gotten me though a lot of hard times.
So take care of yourself!! I say, take some time and pamper yourself a little too.
