When you are physically active, it is important to listen to your body. Start slow, consider how you are feeling, and adjust your activity levels on days when your arthritis symptoms flare up. Use the talk test to see your activity level. See if you can talk through your activity; if so this is a low to moderate level activity. If you cannot hold a conversation, you are engaging in vigorous activity. If you are not sure where to start, or are looking for a little extra support, talk to your doctor or call or visit your local parks and recreation department and ask about the types of activities that fit your needs.
