Although rest is important in managing the fatigue of Lupus, too much rest can be harmful to our muscles, bones, joints, and overall fitness. Keeping fit through an exercise program, helps us to feel better, both mentally and physically. There are many types of exercises that are appropriate for lupus patients, such as swimming and walking. Yoga and Pilates are also good programs for patients with Lupus.
There are many factors which are involved in determining how often you should exercise & what exercises you should do. The best advice is to consult your physician, plan a program, start slowly and stick with it!
In "Lauri's Lounge", there is a thread started by Tracy Dawn entitled "Exercise". There, you will find several suggestions by members about low-impact exercises that might be helpful!!
Peace and Blessings
