Have you ever felt like you try an activity, and then you are absolutely wiped out for the rest of the day and maybe even the next day? A common activity pattern is to do too much, for too long and run out of your useable energy for the day. It is important to pace your activities so you can accomplish more through the day, while slowing and gradually building your tolerance to activities.
Sometimes it is helpful for people to think of their energy levels as a cup of water. Some days your cup may be more full than others, and that is okay! As long as you keep that in mind and use a helpful pacing strategy, you can get through your day, as well as accomplishing tasks.
