Healthy living with RA
The medications you may take are a big part of managing your rheumatoid arthritis (RA). But you make daily choices that can also affect your overall health, happiness and even your RA symptoms. Finding the right ways to cope with pain, fatigue and the emotional stress of RA will help a lot.
Eating right and exercising are also important for everyone. But these two things are especially important for people with RA, because the disease affects the entire body. Eating right and exercising regularly can lead to higher energy levels and improved sleep. They can even help lift feelings of frustration or depression you may have due to the stress of dealing with RA.
