Help needed! I've been working on a project around self-care for the severely sick folk like me. Most self-care says stuff like "Take a walk, go see a movie, go to a restaurant, take a swim" or similar stuff - none of which I can do as a bedridden person... so I've been making cards with things I *can* do.

I'd love to start a Facebook page to put up what I've been working on but the project needs a name. Originally in my head I've been saying "Spoonie Self-Care" but I'd like to stay away from the "spoon" idea because not everybody who's chronically its identifies with the spoon theory idea. There's a fairly limited set of options, given that it has to be fairly short and fairly self-evident what it means. I don't want to, for example, call them 'Penguin Cards' because nobody can tell what that means unless they already know.

Current favourite idea is "Low-energy self care", partially because Trump thinks that "low energy" is an insult so it must be good. Any better ideas?
