Are you having trouble committing to an exercise regime? Take advantage of these nine exercise tips to get you moving. No, you don't have to have rheumatoid arthritis to benefit from them.
Exercise is important when you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA can rob you of what helps you get through your day: mobility, strength, balance, endurance, sleep and well-being. With help from your doctor and physical therapist, you can learn to stem and even arrest some of this thievery.
Check out my slideshow on HealthCentral.com for some tips to get you moving when you don't want to, but know you need to do so: 9 Tips for When You Don't Want To Exercise.
If you're looking for another reason to exercise, read this article: A neuroscientist says there's a powerful benefit to exercise that is rarely discussed.
Even the Mayo Clinic agrees with me in regard to exercise and arthritis. LOL! See: Exercise helps ease arthritis pain.

My partner and I are taking weekly ballroom dancing. I was a dancer for many years – RA changed the way I moved for a while, but I’ve always been trying to find my way back…a slow waltz is a good start 🙂
I’m so glad that you’ve found a way back onto the dance floor, Julia. Ah-one and ah-two and ah-three, away you go!
Do you have a favourite piece of music to waltz to?
No favourites yet. My partner is still counting 😉 Time for discovery after he’s had some time to practice 🙂
Here’s to keeping the count while enjoying the discovery process!
