Exercise relieves the pain of arthritis

If you have arthritis you know how hard it is to get up after sitting for any period of time.   You’re so toxic and tense that you hurt to move.
Try some simple exercises in your chair.  
  1. Swing your arms around in circles.
  2. Lift up one leg at a time.  
  3. Turn your body as far to the right as you can and then to the left.  
  4. While sitting tighten your buttocks and lift your body up from the chair.  You won’t lift it far if at all but you will feel the body lift.
Start with just doing these simple exercises three or four times each for a few minutes and working yourself up to 10 times three or four times a day.  If you like to walk start slow.  If it is only 10 feet, walk 10 feet.  Everyday increase it another 5 feet.
You will be amazed how better you will feel.
Swimming or exercising in water is marvelous.  In the water your body is weightless.  You do not have to swim you can just walk back and forth or do the above exercises.  Try doing this at least 20 minutes three times a week.
The trick to exercising and staying with it is to do something you enjoy and with a friend or a group when possible, it's more fun and you can visit while doing your exercises.  It is better than meeting in a restaurant, sitting and eating bad foods.
Always ask your doctor before starting an exercise program of any kind.  
You are the only one that can change your life.   Do you want to shuffle along or do you want to strut along whistling?  The choice is yours.
