Fun times even with Psoriasis

List five things you do for fun.

1. I go for a relaxing walk to enjoy the scenery outdoors. Probably the best thing you can do for yourself and your health. Helps get everything flowing and reduces stress. Keeps you limber and fit. Good time to collect yourself and prepare for the next day. This low impact exercise strengthens the back muscles around the spine which helps those of us with spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis.

2. I like to go for a long bike rides and discover trails in hopes to see some wildlife. Once in awhile we will see mule deer and coyotes. There are plenty of rabbits and lizards in this area. I haven’t seen any rattlesnakes, mountain lions, or longhorn sheep. I have seen Bald Eagles and Road Runners. We also have lots of Quail. This is “God’s Country” for sure. Biking is one of the best low impact exercises you can do. Just be careful not to get hurt. I wouldn’t recommend it if your balance isn’t so good. Another way I control my autoimmune disease. Plus it’s a whole lot of fun especially if you ride with your family and friends.

3. I love going out on our side by side and seeing the inactive volcanoes and the beautiful blue water of the areas water reservoirs. I never knew how comfortable these UTV’s are when your out riding on the trails. They look intimidating but the shocks on this bad boy cushion most of the bumps. It’s not great exercise, but it will help produce adrenaline which is kinda the same outcome when you ride a roller coaster. Just no long lines before you get on. For me it’s a must do in anyone’s lifetime. A thrill seekers dream.

4. We love taking long drive’s especially when we travel to Wyoming and visit Jackson Hole. So many elk wondering about. We took advantage of the warm weather and managed to do some white water rafting. What a wonderful experience. We also were lucky to see a heard of Bison which I learned is the correct terminology for them in the USA. Jackson hole is a great ski resort. Vacationers hot spot.

5. It’s always fun to travel and see family around the holidays. It’s hectic flying these days, but it’s worth it when we get there and enjoy all the home cook meals. Traveling to a warm destination in the winter is always fun too. I prefer the warm weather, it’s better for my joints and skin. Plus the sun provides you with the much needed vitamin D. Most psoriasis patients are deficient in vitamin d. Safe travels! I hope this was an enjoyable read for you. Overcoming Psoriasis is possible when you learn how to tackle it on a daily basis.
