Quick Explanation of  a SPOON

Each spoon represents something that you do in a day.

For example: Brushing your teeth = 1 Spoon Driving to the store = 1 Spoon Sometimes it takes more than 1 Spoon to do something. It might require 2 – 3 Spoons to make dinner, get groceries or even take a shower.

Most people have an unlimited amount of Spoons, but people that suffer from Chronic Disorders are limited by the number of Spoons they have in a day.  When they run out of Spoons, they are done for the day.
