It can be really difficult to keep going with Lupus. Flare days are the absolute worst.
Here are some quick tips to put a little pep in your step today ...
Get some sunshine in your eyes - not even for very long, thanks #photosensitivity, but breathing in outside air, getting some sunshine - even for 5 minutes- can help boost your energy and improve your mood. If it's a rainy day, even the fresh air can be helpful
Stretch or self-massage - whatever you can do to feel a little good in your body right now, please do!
Read or listen to an inspirational story - sometimes it can be easy to feel really discouraged and upset in your current state. However, sometimes stepping away from ourselves and hearing about someone who has overcome a different challenge can help!
*No, I do NOT mean, "it could be worse" mentality by seeing another tough situation, I mean taking a break from being in our own heads and gaining inspiration from elsewhere.
4. Quit - (WHAT! You're telling me to quit!) Not completely, just for today. Take a break. Not every day is going to be a day of progress. Some days need to be a rest day. If you've got no spoons left, REST!
5. Avoid comparison-itis - Maybe your progress towards the goal isn't as fast as others, only compare your progress to yourself. It's easy to get discouraged when you see miraculous before/afters online or fantastic success stories.
6. Ask for help! If doing it all yourself is not working, I can help you!!!! I provide absolutely individualized, step-by-step guidance to make it all as easy for you as possible!!!
