โ€ผ๏ธ Exercise is not only fundamental to general health but especially vital for individuals facing rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) like #lupus.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), physical inactivity is a significant global health risk, underlining the importance of staying active for overall well-being.

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ EULAR, recognising this critical link between physical activity and health, has taken proactive steps by convening a task force to study the impact of lifestyle behaviours, including exercise, on RMDs.

Their evidence-based recommendations emphasise the undeniable benefits of exercise for individuals dealing with RMDs, including lupus โฌ‡๏ธ:

1๏ธโƒฃ Engaging in regular exercise not only promotes general health but also directly impacts RMD symptoms and progression. It's a win-win for your health!

2๏ธโƒฃ Exercise significantly improves pain, fatigue, function, and overall quality of life for individuals with RMDs like lupus. Your efforts today can yield a better tomorrow.

3๏ธโƒฃ Try to avoid a sedentary lifestyle. Health professionals should urge individuals with RMDs to steer clear of prolonged physical inactivity, as sedentary behaviour is linked to detrimental health effects in both the general population and those with RMDs.

4๏ธโƒฃ Aim, at least, for that moderate intensity! Aerobic and strengthening exercises, performed at the right levels, can truly make a difference in managing lupus and its effects on your body.

5๏ธโƒฃ Remember, it's never too late to start. Exercise is safe and a step towards enhancing your health, even if you've been less active before. Every step counts!

6๏ธโƒฃ Whether in a group or alone, find what works best for you. The community and support can make a difference, but what matters most is finding what motivates you to keep moving.

๐Ÿฆ‹ If you're dealing with lupus, know that exercise can be a game-changer for you too, especially for managing symptoms and enhancing your quality of life.

๐Ÿ“ท Embrace the power of exercise in managing lupus and share your journey using #kicklupus.

Let's inspire and support each other towards a healthier and more active life despite the challenges of lupus! ๐Ÿ’ช

Physical activity (PA) is crucial for everyone, but it holds even greater importance for individuals dealing with lupus and other chronic autoimmune diseases.

Lupus presents unique challenges, and maintaining an active lifestyle can significantly impact the well-being of those living with this condition.

๐Ÿ”ตThis week, let's highlight the unique benefits of physical activity for individuals with lupus:

1๏ธโƒฃ Management of Chronic Conditions: ๐Ÿ’ช Regular physical activity can help prevent and manage comorbidities like cardiovascular risk and osteoporosis.

2๏ธโƒฃ Pain Management and Mobility: ๐ŸƒExercise has been proven to enhance joint flexibility, reduce pain, and improve mobility in patients with lupus.

3๏ธโƒฃ Mental Health and Coping:๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Exercise can be powerful tool for managing mental health issues like depression and anxiety.

4๏ธโƒฃ Maintaining Healthy Weight: โš–๏ธ Regular physical activity can aid in weight management and contribute to a healthier body mass index, which is crucial for managing lupus symptoms effectively.

5๏ธโƒฃ Improving Fatigue Levels: ๐Ÿ‹๏ธ If you live with fatigue, include exercise as part of your treatment!

6๏ธโƒฃ Enhancing Bone Health: ๐Ÿฆด Exercises can improve bone density, helping to mitigate the risk of osteoporosis.

7๏ธโƒฃ Empowerment and Self-Efficacy: ๐ŸŒŸ Achieving fitness milestones and goals can boost self-efficacy and provides a sense of accomplishment and confidence.

๐Ÿ”ด For individuals with lupus, it's essential to work with healthcare professionals to design a personalized exercise plan that takes into account their specific symptoms, limitations, and overall health status. While staying active is beneficial, the type and intensity of exercise should be tailored to the individual to ensure a safe and effective approach to managing lupus.

That is why we, in collaboration with certified physical therapists, have created a ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฒ๐˜…๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—บ. Designed in five levels, this program has received endorsement from renowned European Lupologists. Check it out now! โžก๏ธ www.lupus-europe.org/me-lupus/
