Multiple Sclerosis:ENERGY CONSERVATION TECHNIQUES

Shmoozin' with Susan --- march 31, 2009


My last article addressed fatigue and I referred to energy conservation techniques as important methods in managing fatigue. Although I submitted an article January of 2007, I have provided additional information and recommendations in the continuation of what we can do in dealing with the effects of fatigue.



Energy conservation techniques are ways to use energy more wisely, more efficiently. They are important actions to help limit and/or avoid fatigue. It is important to be proactive and incorporate techniques and strategies in your daily lifestyle to help manage the things you want and need to do.



Prioritize

Accept the fact that you can’t do everything even though you thought you could before. If you, or others around you, have expectations that exceed your abilities, then it’s time to reset those expectations. You need to take care of the necessary obligations related to home, work, even within the community and do what is required regarding those obligations. You want to take care of the tasks that are urgent, time sensitive or essential to your responsibilities. Concentrate on the things that must be done and consider it an additional benefit if you’re able to do a little more.
