Staying active during the COVID-19 pandemic can be difficult. How are Lupus Warriors staying engaged?
Check out this month’s Q&A Forum!
Staying engaged, both mentally and physically, is an important part of life with lupus. A global survey of nearly 5,000 people with lupus released in 2019 by the World Lupus Federation found that:
61.6% of people felt lupus has “a lot” of effect on emotional and mental well-being
Staying mentally healthy can mean:
- Giving yourself time to play
- Connecting with others
- Challenging yourself to a goal
Remaining engaged physically is just as important. Maintaining a healthy weight is linked to fewer lupus symptoms and improved daily function. Plus, exercise can be a great stress relief!
In this month’s LupusCorner Q&A Forum, Lupus Warriors share their techniques for staying active during COVID-19 and address the difficulties of staying isolated.
One thought on “Q&A Forum: Staying Active and Engaged”
Thanks for all the useful reminders about exercise and staying active. Rainy days are especially hard for me.
I begin each day with a prayer and then music for motivation. Good luck and God bless. HOLD FAST.
Thanks for the reminders about staying active. With Lupus we do not know until the am how much energy we have and the fatigue level we are dealing with…
I thank God each day for choices. Unfortunately I also have Chronic Anemia which usually requires weekly injections. HOLD FAST.
