Limited Activity: What Does it Mean?

When your doctor puts you on limited activity--what do you think that means?  To ease the minds of all those plaqued with indecision about what they can and cannot do, I've compiled a list of "can dos" and "cannot dos".  I hope it is helpful to you.

"Cannot Dos"

1. Cannot vacuum the floors
2. Or scrub them on your hands and knees
3. Cleaning the bathroom is out
4. Washing Dishes
5. Ironing
6. Cooking, (unless of course, you'll go nuts without your daily kitchen fix)
7. Organizing that messy back room
8. Bookwork (way too stressful)
9. Laundry
10. Grocery shopping

"Can Dos"

1. Extensive reading of all favorite books
2. Internet browsing until you're so sick of it, you could throw the computer
3. Scrapbooking
4. Sewing, unless you hate doing it, then all those sewing projects you had lined up for the winter must be given to someone else to accomplish for you because you really must have them done now.
5. Naps
6. Consumption of lots of hot and cold beverages (having a maid to prepare them for you is the best; you wouldn't want to strain a muscle stirring the drink mixes)
7. Sleeping
8. Knitting and crocheting and all other crafty projects you have been waiting to do
9. Coffee with Friends
10. Extensive gossiping

Please note: this is not a complete list and should not be undertaken without express approval from your doctor.  This is not intended to serve as a guideline without your doctor's express written permission.  Thank you.
