Lilly keeps being given gifts from the girls that live at the boatyard we are currently staying πŸ₯°

All in the form of dandelions 😍

Lilly is mostly sunbathing on the back of the #narrowboat today, whilst we take the day off to enjoy the sunshine πŸ”†

She is recovering really well, just one stitch left which will be removed Wednesday.

I'm #crocheting the day away for the lovely @hookclick peoples πŸ’œ

I had my second #COVID vaccine today, so taking it very gently.

What're your plans for today?

This was today's breaks in between working with client's πŸ₯°

A good mixture of tasty nutrition with my chocolate @huel, some crochet for @hookclick, some #Witcher3 on the #switch & gentle stretching and small walks.

I practice what I preach.

Pacing, pacing, pacing!

It is @jboccytherapy 's voice that tells me to remember to pace well πŸ’œ

If I don't?

I crash... HARD.

Living with #hEDS & #PoTs is a constant self management process.

Through my training with CPHT, what I've learnt through @hmsacharity & the sessions with Jo Southall, the lovely occupational therapist, it's this knowledge that still enables me today! 😍

It's a full-time job managing symptoms and I still run my practice helping others with their journey with complex health conditions and their mental health too!

Do you pace yourself successfully?

Do you think about how you can and what type of break to take?

Don't get me wrong, I still get it wrong sometimes, no one is perfect πŸ’œ

Be interesting to hear your thoughts on how you manage in the comments below πŸ‘‡
