Pace yourself

Not long to go now until Christmas Day and so much still to do. Pace yourself and try not to get overtired.

Tiredness can be a problem during and after cancer treatment. Try to rest when you need to, and don’t feel embarrassed if you haven’t set up the perfect Christmas. Friends and family will understand and who make all the rules about Christmas anyway. It should be about precious time spent with family and friends.

Having visitors or going to see people can be very tiring. Try to pace yourself throughout the day, having a rest in the middle of the morning and the afternoon to help cope with the  Christmas lunch and dinner. Call on those who offer help.

If you’re invited to parties it might help to have a rest beforehand and perhaps only go for a short time.

Just do as much as you feel like doing!
