Whether you were born with a mobility-related condition or you’ve developed one, caring for your mental and physical health should be a top priority. You should always follow the advice given to you by medical professionals but there are plenty of things that you can do at home to look after your physical health.
Read on for some top tips.
Eating a good balanced diet is a great way of improving the way your body feels. It’s important to eat in moderation and ensure that your meals are colourful and nutritious. The foods you put into our bodies affect your energy levels, blood pressure and our overall well being so eat well and drink plenty of fluids too.
Get the right physical support
If you have trouble walking or balancing, don’t suffer in silence. Physical support is there if you need it such as stairlifts, walking aids and bathroom adaptations. Take care of your body by keeping it safe as overexerting yourself can make your symptoms worse. When you have the right aids in place this can have a big impact on how your body feels as well as your quality of life.
Improve your sleep
Did you know that sleep plays an important role in your physical health? As we sleep our bodies use this time to rest, restore and heal. Fatigue will likely affect you more if you have a physical condition, so ensuring that you get enough sleep can improve the way you feel day to day.
Just because you have limited mobility doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be active. Of course, always consult your doctor beforehand. With home mobility aids you can move around safely and help your muscle and joints stay supple as well as light exercise or physiotherapy.
