In Session 5 you will learn specific strategies for determining what is a desired (want to) versus a required (have to) activity and how to create a more reasonable personal schedule. When dealing with a chronic illness, learning to conserve energy and make good decisions about daily activities is important. Also, being on home-bound/home-hospital or home-schooled academic schedules can result in a less structured daily schedule and decreased peer social contact. Over- and/or underscheduling physical and social activities can become a major problem and source of stress. Setting reasonable and reachable goals and expectations is very important and requires that you learn how to prioritize and adjust your schedule of activities in response to your symptoms and illness.
