My pj day
Not leaving the house unless someone is bleeding and dying
One of the lessons Fibro has taught me is listening to my body, especially when it comes to rest. My focus in life is to work my forty plus hour job and then rest. I have hired help with the ‘big’ cleaning (such as the kitchen and bathrooms), we have a gardener to take care of the yard, and all errands are ran on Saturday (or after work). Sunday, I rest. At the most, I spend it writing this blog and doing laundry.
Seems lazy to you??
I can only offer that when I don’t rest on Sunday’s, I can pretty much guarantee you that I will be out one day the following week due to extreme fatigue. Rest is as important to me as breathing. Without it, I just get sicker and have more flares. It’s as important as the yoga stretches and eating right. If I go for a visit for a weekend, Monday is taken off for a rest day.
Living with a chronic illness is learning to live your life differently. I do have to slow down, my health depends upon it.
Besides, God said it was good!
