How to Celebrate Mother's Day with Lupus

Updated: Apr 18

Mother's Day is a special day to celebrate the women who have made a significant impact in our lives. However, for mothers who have lupus, this day can be challenging, especially if you're in a flare. In this blog post, we will discuss some ways to celebrate Mother's Day with lupus.




  1. Plan a Relaxing Day at Home

A day of rest and relaxation can be just what you need on Mother's Day. Plan a day at home that includes favorite activities such as reading, watching movies, or taking a relaxing bath. Create a peaceful and comfortable environment by lighting candles, playing soft music, and making sure the temperature is comfortable.


2. Have a Virtual Mother's Day Celebration

It can be challenging to gather in person for celebrations. However, technology can help bring people together virtually. Plan a virtual Mother's Day celebration with family and friends through video chat platforms like Zoom or Skype. You can send a special care package in advance that includes items such as a cozy blanket, a special treat, or a personalized card to make the occasion feel extra special.


3. Create a Customized Meal

A customized meal that meets the dietary needs of a mother with lupus can be a thoughtful and special way to celebrate Mother's Day. Lupus can affect a person's digestive system, so it's essential to create a meal that is gentle on the stomach. Consider creating a menu that includes anti-inflammatory foods such as salmon, leafy greens, and berries.


4. Take a Nature Walk

Spending time in nature can have many health benefits, including reducing stress and improving mood. Taking a gentle walk in a nearby park or nature reserve can be a lovely way to celebrate the day. Make sure to plan a route that is gentle and does not include steep hills or uneven terrain if you're having joint pain or fatigue.


Celebrating Mother's Day with lupus can require a little creativity, but there are still plenty of ways to show your love and appreciation. Remember to take things slow and be gentle with yourself, as lupus can be a challenging condition to manage. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
