Define energy conservation
Understand why energy conservation is so important for you
Learn the “basic rules” of energy conservation
Describe ways to incorporate energy conservation into your daily activities
Identify how/where you can receive additional information and assistance with learning about and understanding energy conservation
Exactly what it says…conserving energy
Utilizing your allowable energy in a way that maintains a functional level of activity in your life
A method to help you avoid fatigue and pain
Helps you achieve a balance between work and rest
Will improve your functional endurance and allow you to do more
To allow you to do as much or more activity with less pain and fatigue
It means that you need to complete your daily activities in a different way or method…using the least amount of energy as possible
All of these changes may seem small and insignificant, however when you combine all the “little bits” of energy saved throughout the day, this becomes a significant amount of precious energy and reduced pain and fatigue.
Energy is like money…you only have so much, so think about what you want to spend it on!!!
