Conserving Your Energy

Conserving energy when reaching for and grabbing items

Plan some ways to conserve your energy when you need to reach or grab something. Here are some ideas.

  • Put the things you use the most onto shelves or counters that are easy to get to without bending down or reaching up.

    Bending and reaching can make you tired quickly.

  • Use long-handled grabbers or other tools to reach items on a high shelf or to pick up things off the floor.
  • Use long-handled dusters when you clean.
