The chronically ill need to rest a lot. Some people can get very relaxed and take a nap in the middle of a chaotic flea market. Many of us, however, rest much better in a tidier, esthetically pleasing environment.
Try putting a little thought into into the design of where you rest. It does NOT have to look like a Better Home & Gardens photo spread (or cost cost as much!) – it just needs to look nice to your eyes and calming to your mind.
Treat yourself to a really nice blanket to rest with. Find just the texture you like and then tell everyone else, including pets, don’t touch – this blanket is just for me!
