Hello and thank you for joining us for this week’s episode!
Fibromyalgia is more common than we think and affects many adults when it comes to staying physically active and healthy. Dealing with the pain that comes from having this diagnosis can be very de-motivating especially when it comes to physical activity.
This can lead to even more health issues down the road if we are not careful. Luckily there are many ways we can stay active even when living with fibromyalgia that will still keep us safe, comfortable and allow us to enjoy the benefits of regular exercise.
In This Episode You Will Learn:
1). Learning about what fibromyalgia is and how it affects the body and mind which can lead to a less than active lifestyle for most people who live with this diagnosis.
2). Some of Meredith’s personal experiences in working with clients that live with fibromyalgia and the ups and owns that it can cause when it comes to physical activity.
3). Tips on where to start when it comes to exercising and some great examples of exercises that can benefit you and cater to your fibromyalgia.
4). Why being aware of how your body responds to both cardio and strength training is so important especially when dealing with the effects of fibromyalgia.
5). How exercising regularly can actually make you feel better even if you live with fibromyalgia if done correctly and safely.
Thank you again for joining us on this episode. We hope the tips we’ve suggested here are helpful to you or someone you know who lives with fibromyalgia.
Staying active is very important especially as we age and finding safe ways to keep us in the game and overcome our challenges (no matter what they are) is what it’s all about.
