Stop the pain and stress stealing your fit life

Arthritis, subluxation, and dysplasia can keep you from exercising the way you want to because of either pain or risk of injury.

The exercises most commonly recommended often are just too much. Squats and lunges are exercises that can cause more harm than good. How then, can you exercise?

If you’re caught between a need to exercise so you can manage your weight, and your stress level, but are limited by joint pain or paying for exercise with worsening problems afterwards, this is for you.

This episode of Flipping 50 TV features a question from Lora, who in addition to suffering with hip joint issues, is also experiencing stress and fatigue because her busy schedule leaves little time for self-care.

I’m sure a lot of us can relate… so see what I recommended for her — which includes some personalized exercises, minute meal tips for breakfast and supper, and inflammation-dousing tips — and put it to work for you to achieve your fit life…

Though there may be things you can’t do, there are always things that you can do to achieve a fit life. Focus on those solutions.

Nutrition choices can help reduce your pain and improve your results even with less exercise. Don’t negate the fact that if you have joint issues, pain, or inflammation, your dietary choices can help turn off that inflammation and help you be more comfortable too.
