Now that Spring is here and we are beginning to have lighter evenings. It’s a good time to consider reviewing your fitness and exercise regime if you have one.
After I was was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2004, I found that exercise helped me a lot as I struggled to find things I could do. When you have Fibromyalgia it is a daunting prospect, keeping fit. Particularly starting out for the first time, with a new exercise.
It’s really important to keep as healthy as possible, as your level of stamina fluctuates so much.
I have made a list of everything that has helped me that you could try.
I found walking to be the most accessible and best for my circumstances. Walking can help to boost your energy levels and enjoy nature.
If you suffer from low mood, walking on a regular basis is a good non medical therapy, to help feel more positive.
If you are on a low-income, it’s no problem to try out as there is no sign up charges.
If you are new to walking it is best to start with 5 to 10 minutes at first and gradually increase this as your body gets used to the exercise.
You will need to try out a pattern that suits you.
When you first start you may need to get some comfortable shoes and wrap up well with thermal layers on cold days.
