When you have arthritis, you need to find the right balance between work, activity and rest.
Many people find arthritis a tiring disease particularly if they are in pain.
If you find this to be the case, listen to your body and be guided by it. Rest when you are tired and don’t force yourself to work or exercise through pain.
For more information refer to the following information sheets:
- Balancing work, rest and play
