Tool 12 - is keeping it up...putting into daily practice the tools from 1-11.
You may be asking yourself do I have to put these tools into daily practice? “What, every day”? The simple answer is Yes. Just as the person with diabetes has to take their treatment/medication and maintain their diet daily, your treatment is planning/prioritising, pacing, setting weekly or long-term goals/action plans, relaxation, exercise, generally keeping active and being in charge of your pain.
