Minimising strain on our cardiovascular and respiratory systems can reduce symptoms of breathlessness, tachycardia and fatigue. Thinking about how we position ourselves in relation to the activity in which we are engaging will help reduce or eliminate these symptoms.

Written and presented by an OT with 20+ years’ experience and a special interest in Chronic Fatigue, this presentation is the fourth in a series of videos designed to help COVID-19 long haulers manage their symptoms and return to their normal everyday activities. The videos share practical advice and ideas which you will be able to implement in your own daily routine. By the end of the series you should feel more confident about the strategies and structure required to pace and grade your return to everyday activities and work in a controlled manner.
