One of the many things depression and other chronic or invisible illnesses steal from us, is our energy.
In this 17-minute episode, we discuss Christine Miserandino’s Spoon Theory
as a way to both manage and explain our often-limited resources.
It uses spoons as a metaphor for the amount of physical and/or mental energy that we have available
for daily activities and tasks, and how it can become limited.
It offers a kind of shorthand for communicating why we need to make choices
(i.e. cancelling plans, saying no to opportunities, etc.)
The Spoon Theory may also help you show yourself a bit more grace.
