Nothing makes us more conscious of the passage of time quite like daylight savings. It messes with our internal clock, our daily routine, and even our health. An extra hour of sleep really does make a difference, doesn’t it? But alas, come April, you’ll be walking around with an hour less of REM, and when you’re experiencing joint pain, exercising does not sound appealing. Here are 3 joint pain exercises to help relieve and renew your system.
1. Go for a swim.
I know, I know. Who wants to put on a bathing suit prematurely? But trust me, your joints will thank you for it. Swimming is a great way to lose weight without putting extra pressure on your aching joints. If you’re intimidated by swimming a whole lap, start out by kicking your way across the pool with a kickboard. Take breaks, stand up in your lane, or hold onto the rope lanes if you must. Don’t worry about what you look like in a swimsuit or how you look half-drowning your way across the pool. You’ve got to start somewhere. So don’t give yourself time to panic or talk yourself out of it. Just jump in and go!
2. Play a game of tennis.
Take advantage of the extra daylight and go play a game of tennis after work with a friend. Get your blood circulating and your joints will start to loosen up. If you’re worried about tennis elbow, wear a CopperJoint Sleeve, to keep your arm flexible and pain-free. Love-all, am I right?
3. Go for an afternoon walk.
If you’ve been sitting in front of a computer all day, you might be experiencing carpal tunnel or other built up tension in your joints. When it comes to joint maintenance mobility is important. In other words, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Take a break from your busy day, your cramped desk, your stressed-out mindspace and go for an afternoon stroll. Give yourself the opportunity to release the tension from your joints and get them moving again. You might also want to take a dose of OrganoLeaf Tumeric Curcumin with your lunch in order to bring down inflammation in your joints to support mobility.
The fact is, you don’t need to exert grand efforts to begin bettering your health. Relieving joint pain can be as simple as going for a swim, playing a game of tennis, or taking an afternoon walk. And the best part? It can be fun! So take charge of your health in simple ways.
