Balancing daily activities

Planning, prioritising and pacing involve working out the most important things that must be done and then steadily managing how you do them. This can really help with controlling pain and flare-ups.

Pacing means taking a break before you think you need to - before your pain or tiredness increases. It can help you to do more with less pain and stress.
