What is the best tool you have in your CFS Management Toolkit?

  • I think mine must be water. I am constantly working to keep hydrated: water, cuppas, soup... If I don't manage that everything gets impossible.

    Great question. I think my answer is hope. Not the unconditional kind of hope, more the pragmatic hope that tomorrow (or maybe the next day) might be a little more tolerable. Editing in pacing to my answer because that is often the tool I have overlooked and therefore need to pick up the hope tool. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • My heart rate monitor. I nearly just said "data" because any and all information is incredibly useful. But yeah, the heart rate data above all is invaluable.

    A good question and good answers ๐Ÿ™‚ Pacing is comfortably my best tool/technique. That, and stubbornness!

  • @Dot Good question...and also a tough one! For me, itโ€™s my heart rate monitor to aid pacing...but I donโ€™t think we realise how many different management tools and strategies we utilise every day, I think weโ€™re all pretty amazing ๐Ÿ’™
