It’s challenging for all of us to achieve balance in our lives. There are always so many things that simultaneously compete for our attention.
When you’re living with chronic illness, it seems even more daunting to achieve a sense of true balance. After all, you’re already running on limited resources of energy.
Significant amounts of time are spent, every single day, in effectively managing a chronic illness. Both of these factors reduce the overall amounts of time and energy that are available for pursuing activities.
Attempting to achieve balance with your remaining levels of time and energy is further complicated by the unpredictability of many symptoms of chronic illness. Consequently, you must become that much more diligent in eliminating any and all factors that serve to reduce your already limited energy level, or to waste your precious time.
Chronic illness demands that you become as efficient as possible in your completion of tasks.
