Executive Skills

At the end of the day I haven’t got the important stuff done

Sometimes planning and organising daily life can become problematic. People with MS have reported difficulty with “problems making decisions and working things out”, or “I’m not coping properly with work/children’s schedules”. You can feel busy all day or even all week, but still not seem to have got the important things done. Being aware of urgent tasks and managing priorities are necessary for your relationships and also managing your health optimally. Scheduling and planning in advance isn’t the most exciting way to spend your time, but they are easy ways to solve this problem for many people with MS.
