Balance Your Life

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.

Learn how to pace yourself, carefully plan and organise your activities so you make the most of your energy.

Our booklet, ‘10 Steps to Living Well with Arthritis’ has been created to help you take control, plan and manage your arthritis.  Call the Arthritis Infoline on 1800 011 041 to request your copy, or download it using the link below.

“I alternate periods of activity and periods of rest to get the most out of my life – most importantly I make sure that I have the time and energy to have fun”
