Ever have a morning where it just seems to take more time to get rid of morning stiffness and get going about your day?

For those of us with arthritis or any other chronic condition, it can be a challenge.

Know that you are not alone.

As we age, our bodies may not be the same fine tuned instruments as when we were younger.

As we age our arteries become stiffer and less flexible, bones and muscles tend to weaken and getting the lubrication (synovial fluid) to the joints takes longer.

Also, what type of sleep you had that night can make a difference.

Funny that a restless sleep can be as problematic as a good one where everything slows down due to little movement that comes from a sound sleep.

The solution? Move more.

Not easy when that is the exact opposite of what you feel like doing.

THE GOOD NEWS…you don’t have to burn it up to get started, you just need to get started. Just some gentle coaxing moves to get rid of morning stiffness in can do the job, except some mornings may take more of these movements before you can jump into your regular exercise routines or start your errands and chores for the day.

I strongly suggest you start as this video says, with stretches in bed, small ball wakeup and then if needed, maybe after you morning coffee this one which is so simple.

Give all three a try for a week and let me know if it works. Your feedback is so helpful!
