Pacing involves cutting up activity into manageable chunks and switching between physical, mental, social and emotional activities throughout the day . All these activities should have periods of rest planned around them to keep energy levels as high as possible, and to make sure that you don’t become over-tired. This means taking notice of what your own particular ‘warning signs’ are, and stopping your activity before you reach exhaustion point. Do not ignore what your body is telling you. Ignoring the warning signs repeatedly can, lead to a long term deterioration in health.
