So if you have half a heart, how do you use the Energy Project with Spoons?
Youth member Lucy aged 13 explains how to use the energy project by saying, ‘ A heart healthy person starts their day with 20 spoons of energy, just what they need for the day ahead. Throughout the day everybody loses spoons, as they do activities like walking to school, and gains spoons, for example when they take a rest or eat. However, people with heart conditions, like me, start each day with 10 spoons.’
These are the spoons of energy that you can use throughout your day. From these 10 spoons of energy you will need to think about what activities you would like to do and how many spoons of energy it will take up. To help plan your day we have created a LHM Energy Project poster with some common activities and how many spoons they use.
