Let loose with laughter!
Smile, say cheese, and have a giggle! A good sense of humor is good for your health. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the bodyâ€™s natural feel-good chemicals that give you an overall sense of well-being and may even temporarily relieve pain.
Drive Away with Arthritis!
Loss of joint mobility, coupled with pain, can result in diminished dexterity. When it comes to driving or buying a car, consider adaptations such as rubber key holders, extended gearshift levers, and power windows and locks.
Pets get arthritis, too!
If your cat or dog is favoring a limb, limping, resting more, or becomes less active, they may have arthritis. Ask your vet if this is a possibility — but never give your pet "human" medications.
Keep an arthritis-friendly kitchen
In addition to buying arthritis-friendly cooking tools, you should organize your kitchen so that your frequently-used cooking utensils and kitchen items are easy-to-reach, with heavier items on lower levels and lightweight items on top.
Laugh Away the Pain
If arthritis is giving you the blues, try laughter yoga. Laughing can lead to the release of endorphins, which are natural feel-good hormones.
