What can I do that is productive that won't stress my elbow or my knees? I can do almost anything on my computer, because I can sit in my comfortable recliner, with my laptop computer in my lap. I can read, as long as it is not one of those books that requires strength to hold it open. I can watch a movie with my sweetie. I can do a jigsaw puzzle. I can call my sister/brother/best friend from college. I can exercise in the water. I can pet a cat or dog. I can daydream. I can reminisce. I can make plans for a glorious vacation I will take only in my mind. I can eat a Popsicle or a peach. I can listen to the birds in the trees and watch the butterflies in my garden. I can sing with my favorite music. I can tell a story to a child. I can toast marshmallows. I can stargaze. I can meditate. I can pray. I can say "I love you" to the people in my life. I can say "thank you", and "please" and "bless you". I can practice using my left hand, and laugh at my mistakes. I can take a hot shower. I can get a massage. I can I can laugh, I can cry, I can smile at a secret only I know. I can be gentle with myself and accept myself as I am.
