Energy Conservation Techniques

The goal of using techniques to save energy is to allow you to increase your level of activity without increasing fatigue. The other goal is to help you have enough energy to do the activities you enjoy!

The following are Energy Conservation Techniques:

Plan ahead:
Organize tasks to reduce clutter and prevent extra movement
Delegate work to others
Schedule your activities throughout the day and week by breaking down tasks and setting realistic priorities

Limit overhead work
Alternate hands frequently when working overhead
