Your OT may talk to you about the 4 Ps: Pacing, Planning, Prioritizing and Positioning. Pacing is essentially not doing too much in one day or in one period of time.
Planning is looking ahead, being organized. Prioritizing is taking a look at what the most important things that you have on your list are, and asking for help or delegating wherever you can. Positioning is looking at where your body is in space and how ergonomics can help you do what you need to do in a way that doesn’t provoke concussion symptoms. It’s important not to return to play or work until you’ve been cleared by your interdisciplinary team, as this can be detrimental to your health.
