Can anyone help me understand how I balance activity and rest? I rest on settee in front of TV most days between 9am-3pm and spend a lot of time on computer, tablet or reading. Then I collect kids from school so have to be more active til they are in bed. Then I watch TV/read again until about 9pm, then bed. My symptoms fluctuate a lot and I rarely get good days right now. I've tried to properly rest for an hour every so often in bed with an audio book but I'm not good at it and resent the time I lose. I don't mind physically being inactive but find it hard not to keep my mind active. I'm just rubbish at doing nothing. People keep telling me to go to bed while kids are at school and then as soon as they're in bed but I'm just not that sort of person. Is it OK to do these simple mental activities from the settee each day or should I really be stopping all activity for periods each day?
