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.
