If you’re living with joint pain, every day can be a fight. The good news is, there are little things you can do about it during day-to-day life. Read on for some great suggestions!

Don’t stomp

  • If you’re consistently pounding your joints, they’re not going to be happy with you. If exercises like kickboxing and step aerobics make you hurt, don’t worry. Joint pain doesn’t mean the end of your active life. Rather, you need to find activities that aren’t as hard on your joints. Explore swimming, biking, and other activities that will burn calories without leaving you in pain. Being active should make you feel better!

Keep a journal

  • If you’ve never tried releasing  your thoughts an experiences onto paper, we suggest you give it a chance. It will give you a change to put everything in perspective. It also allows you to record your victories. You can look at them when you’re feeling low.

Do yoga

  • Yoga has brought relief to people for over 5,000 years. It’s a gentle form of exercise that not only helps improve your mind-body connection, it will keep you fit and ensure your joints stay limber. If yoga isn’t your cup of tea, you can do tai chi or Pilates. Just find something that will keep you moving and give you a chance to de-stress.
