Energy. Inflammation. Pain. You have a window of time when your condition may have improved to the point where you can get out and do some of the things you need to do, or that you’d like to do – errands, shopping, visiting friends, getting out for a hike, etc.

For example, first thing in the morning, you may be extremely stiff. This might be a great time to do some breathing and gentle movement exercises. Once you start to limber up, you are ready to get out and do some of the things on that list, be it a fun list, a work list or a life list.

Become aware of your window and schedule your activities to make the best use of your time and energy. Share this strategy with your family and friends so that they understand, and hopefully, be willing to accommodate you in your mission to get out, to do and to see.
