Taking breaks can be a helpful tool to manage your symptoms and improve your overall well-being. Here are a few reasons why taking breaks is so important:

  • Reducing stress: Chronic illness can cause stress and anxiety, which can in turn exacerbate symptoms. Taking breaks and engaging in relaxing activities can help reduce stress levels.

It is essential to take care of our wants and needs. Our needs are the foundation on which our wants are built. When we have our needs met, we are able to explore and experience different wants. Wants are not the same as needs because they are not necessary for survival but the desire is the driver of wants. Satisfying our needs and fulfilling our wants is essential to human satisfaction.

There are different levels of needs and wants. The most basic need is physiological, which is the need of the body to survive. The next level is safety, which is the need of the mind to feel secure. The third level is love and belonging, which are the needs of the heart to feel connected. The fourth level is esteem, which is the need of the ego to feel respected. The fifth and final level is self-actualization, which is the need of the soul to reach its full potential.

We all have different needs and wants. It is important to identify what our needs and wants are so that we can take steps to satisfy them. It is also important to be mindful of

In fact, it’s even more important to take care of yourself when you’re dealing with chronic illness and pain. self-care can help you manage your symptoms, cope with your feelings, and maintain your quality of life.

Similarly, when you have a chronic illness, you may need to see more doctors or specialists than someone who is healthy. This can lead to higher medical bills. You may also need to miss work more often, which can lead to lost income.

It can be ours that wants the very thing that makes us feel good. For example, a new phone, a new car, a new book, a new anything. With a chronic illness, it can be difficult to want to do anything. Just getting out of bed can be a daunting task, let alone working a job, taking care of our responsibilities, and then trying to do the things we want to do. It’s no wonder that so many of us with chronic illnesses end up feeling depressed and anxious.
