As all of us MSers know (and other folks with autoimmune conditions such as RA…just for my pal with RA so she doesn’t complain) that rest is a very good thing. It allows us to attempt to recharge our batteries so we can live and enjoy as full a life as possible).
Whenever I speak to my MS nurse she always reminds me to rest…rest…and rest some more!!!
My wonderful wife tells me to rest…rest…and rest some more!!!
My brilliant mum tells me to rest…etc etc. You get the picture!!
So we know we have to rest. I understand that and I do try to rest.
However, as a genetically lazy sod how do I work out if I’m actually resting or just being lazy? My days are now structured so I work for a bit then rest then work then rest etc.
Does it mean if I go over my rest periods I’m being lazy?
Or am I just that fatigued I need the extra rest?
I have a theory that if I am asleep, lying down or reading then that counts as rest. If I am watching telly or playing a game on the laptop then that’s just being lazy.
What do you folks think? When does rest become laziness?
I suppose as long as I complete all of my work then I can rest (or be lazy).
Right, that’s enough for now as I do need to have my morning rest (no telly, playing or reading allowed as per instructions from my wife!!!) Stay strong MSers,
