When you do absolutely nothing around your home for one day so you can rest...you are not wasting your day.
When you spend the day in your comfy clothes relaxing....you are not wasting your day.
When you spend the day focusing on your needs caring for yourself during the periods of heightened pain...you are doing exactly what your body needs you to do. You are recovering.
So remember....you are not wasting the day....you are recovering and taking care of your body.....there is no shame in doing that! and don't let anyone tell you different.
You know your body and you know what your body needs.
take good care of you okay?
