Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, having a chronic condition can severely limit the amount of energy and strength a person has. We wanted to ask you, how much exercise do you manage to do every day? Is it a short walk? A cycle? A swim?

Please share in the comments below and we can encourage each other to move more (within our capabilities) to have healthier lifestyles!

I've had a triple by-pass, a mitral valve repair, my heart stopped, then I got sepsis. I also have diabetes. After my cardio rehab ended I started my own excersise program. I walk 30 minutes on a treadmill 3x a week and the other 2 days I do 45 minutes of water aerobics. Has made a world of difference in my energy legal, stamina and heart function.

I have had acute kidney failure twice in the last six weeks with emergency dialysis the last time.  I walk in my yard and work in the flowers.  Other than that, I am not getting much exercise but hopefully will be able to do so soon.

My Drs recommended a recumbent bike due to my balance issues, which causes me to fall alot. I have fibro and peripheral neuropathy in hands feet and legs. I'm having to try professional Dansko Crocs the 3rd when I get paid. If that doesn't help then next step is surgery on my feet. I'm so tired of surgeries. I just want to lead a normal life. But anyway I walk as much as possible, I garden, do flower beds, clean my house and a couple others and I do some exercises laying in bed. 1 day if just sitting and I'm so stiff and in pain so gotta keep moving.

I was recently diagnosed with Aggressive RA, I’m 47 and was put on MTX. I’m very worried about this medication. Does anyone have experience with it or some knowledge they can share with me please. 

Thank you kindly

I have RA, so yoga is painful & not possible, but I do pilates & work out on machines at the gym.  I also walk my dogs the days I don't go to the gym.  I need to exercise everyday

I’m exhausted all the time, but I’m been trying static bicycle for 10 to 15 minutes, then I pause to catch my breath and practicing mindfulness breathing, then I do 5 more minutes of oriental disciplines such as yin ti du lee and tai chi with an instructor 3 times a week, then, I rest to recover my energy.

@MariaTurner hey friend I hope you are having a wonderful day today.

I have Lupus and fibromyalgia. I have very high archers and have hard time finding shoes.

I went to the Happy Feet Store and purchased a pair of sandals with little nubs on them as they are placed in specific places and at different levels so that it will provide acupressure to the bottom of your feet.

I have had mine for 3 years and I need another pair but for the money, you can't beat them.  $100.00.  they are called Kenkoh.  They have different kinds and are staff is extremely helpful.

Hope you have a blessed day 🙏

Hey y'all, I unfortunately don't exercise anymore.  I have Lupus and in turn have issues with my heart and because of my joints, I am not able to really exercise so I try to get up and do something during commercials. I have the TV on so I'm up and down all day but at a very slow pace.  I can hear my TV through out our home so for me, it's a great tool.  Even if it is just for the noise and commercials.

I have flowers on my porch and inside, they are my babies.  I take very short walks and will be starting water therapy soon. 

The key for me is commercials and using a calendar for my to do list for the day.

God bless 🙏
