5 ways to combat inflammation today

Multitask your daily activities by adding a walk

For people with RA, increasing gentle movement throughout the day can decrease inflammation while improving mood and mobility. You don’t have to do formal exercises or take a lot of time. Multitask walking and activities you already do today such as parking a little further at the store, taking the stairs at work or going for a walk when making phone calls.

Add one healing food to your meals each week

Eating food in its natural state is best for your body. Small changes will allow your body to adapt to healthier foods and make it easier to maintain new habits. Try adding a single color of healthy food to your diet each week; for example, choosing “red” options might include strawberries, cherries, watermelon, tomatoes, peppers and radishes.

Prepare for sleep during the day by making small adjustments

Sleep is essential for prevention of chronic disease, recovery from injury or illness,  maintenance of a healthy immune system and living longer with a higher level of wellbeing. Prepare for sleep during the day by avoiding caffeine, alcohol and food 4-8 hours before bedtime.

Practice gratitude for stress relief in less than 1 minute

Avoiding every stressful situation in your life is unrealistic. Implementing stress reducing techniques can decrease RA flares, inflammation and pain and can also improve mood, energy, and sleep. Gratitude lowers the stress hormone cortisol, which can havoc your body. Before bed, write down 3 things you are grateful for that day.

Get a health coach for more tips, education and support

Small changes can have a great impact but most of the time we are unsure where to start or how to continue making progress. A health coach is an amazing resource for you when you are ready to make changes. They provide direction, education and support to not only make these lifestyle changes but to sustain them in a way that works for you.
