I like to keep active when I can, however living with ME/CFS can limit my activities. The key is all about balancing what you can, when you can!
I think its important to keep active, that may mean changing or limiting your exercise activity to what is suited best for your body and it’s needs. Small movement is better than no movement, our body needs movement to get the blood pumping. There are so many different ways you can incorporate exercise into your day, so here’s a little insight of what I do to get active.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that my pooch Snow Bear likes her walkies! Especially at the beach!
Snow Bear and I like to go for a couple of 30 minute walks a week. If I have the spare energy we might push it a bit longer or even fit in another walk. But we always make sure we hit the beach for a walk, the sea air is so refreshing and does wonders for the soul.
Stretching and yoga is also a huge part of my exercise routine. I make sure I keep this up everyday, the amount of time I spend stretching depends on how my body feels. My stretching time usually ranges from 5 – 30 minutes, incorporating light stretches, restorative yoga and more challenging poses when my energy levels are high. I occasionally attend yoga classes when possible, but mostly my stretching routine is done in my own backyard.
I enjoy my exercise activities, it may not seem like a lot but it can definitely be challenging for me at times. It suits my current lifestyle whilst still pushing and motivating me.
