You may have a tendency to want to speed things up – after all, you have places to go, and people to see. Doing too much, too soon, may end up costing you in the long run. Like the tortoise, slow and steady wins the race. As you begin to feel better, you can do more, whether it be walking, lifting, stretching, or working. Learn to deeply listen to your body. It will tell you when you've done too much.
