Posted By HMSA Social Media Coordinator, July 1, 2018

We usually use this time to relfect on the week just gone, how we did with our self care, pacing, self management ect.

This week, I would like to us to look forward…

How will you plan your week to ensure you give yourself some ‘me‘ time? I know a lot of us will feel guilty for wanting or needing time to ourselves, we really shouldn’t. Even if it is making sure you give yourself half an hour to have a long soak in a hot bath. I set reminders on my phone to ensure I do something I love. This helps with pain reduction and distraction techniques from pain. It could be anything from a bath, to meditation, deep muscle relaxation, pilates class, swimming etc. – Kim 🙂
