I'd have to agree that we have to keep moving. I think everyone has a unique baseline physical ability. A gentle pushing to what we can already do seems reasonable. Especially stretching and core strengthening.
Personally, I wake up stiff, do stretches in bed before getting up. Then I carefully go downstairs, holding the railings firmly! Coffee, dishes, tidy up, laundry, feed kitties, breakfast, etc. That all gets me loose. Then it's activity time. The more I do, the harder I fall! By evening I can hardly stand for the pain. So I sit as soon as possible.
I wish I could push harder. I keep trying to push anyway and refuse to become sedentary even though it would feel so good! I know my health would be even worse if I gave in to the desire to be pain-free today.
Thanks for letting us know how exercise has helped you!View Thread
