12 Tips for Coping With Fibromyalgia.


Stress may trigger fibromyalgia symptoms. Minimizing stress can improve your quality of life. Some proven stress busters are yoga, exercise, sleep, and meditation. Breathing deeply and exhaling slowly can also help. Or keep in mind activities that you enjoy or that make you feel better. When stress strikes, do one or two of them.

Jot It Down

If "fibro fog" is hurting your focus or memory, keep a pen and paper handy. Make to-do and even "to say" lists -- to help you remember topics you want to talk to your spouse or family about. Keep shopping lists, friends' names, and important phone numbers and addresses in a notebook that you carry with you.

Exercise Regularly

Regular, low-intensity exercise, such as walking or warm-water exercise, is one of the best treatments for fibromyalgia. It helps decrease pain and stiffness, reduce stress, and may increase your sense of control over your fibromyalgia. You may also sleep better. Talk to your doctor or a physical therapist about a good exercise program for you.

Do Some Serious Soaking

Soaking in a warm bath or hot tub can relax tense muscles, reduce pain, and help you move more easily. If it's difficult for you to get in and out of the tub, try a sauna or put a stool in the shower so you can sit and let the water do its work. Moist heat may increase endorphins, which block pain signals, and help you sleep more soundly.

Reach for Decaf

Caffeine may compound stress, both physically and psychologically. It stimulates the heart and central nervous system, and can increase nervousness, anxiety, and insomnia. So decaffeinate to de-stress. For better sleep at night avoid caffeine from the late afternoon on. Watch out for caffeine in chocolate, coffee, and some soft drinks and teas.

Take Some 'Me Time' Every Day

Fibromyalgia can pose unique health challenges and make life complicated. So make time for yourself every day as a part of your treatment. Lose yourself in a hobby, put on some music, get a massage , rest -- whatever makes you feel good. It may bring more balance to your life, help you fight stress, and boost your energy for the things you need to do.

Make Work Life Better

Is work leaving you exhausted and in pain? Design a flexible plan that works for you and your boss. Ask about working from home part-time, or setting your hours for earlier or later in the day so you can be more productive. At the office, rearrange your workspace for comfort and easy accessibility. A telephone headset, keyboard tray, or other products may help put less stress on your body.

Talk About It

Fibromyalgia puts stress on you and those around you. Communication is critical. Don't try to always put on a happy face. Your loved ones need to know what makes your symptoms worse. Plan talks for your best time of day. Try focusing on one issue and look for solutions. And don't be afraid to ask for help -- from friends, others with fibromyalgia, or a counselor.

Just Say No

Fibromyalgia is sometimes called an "invisible illness" -- you can look fine but feel bad. People may forget that you need to prioritize and pace yourself. When weighing activities, favors, or invitations consider if they will keep you from the rest, exercise, or relaxation you need to feel well. It's OK to simply say "no." And stick to it.

Make Your Bedroom a Sleep Sanctuary

If you're not getting enough rest, set the mood in your bedroom for sleep. Reserve your bed for sleeping, and keep the room dark, quiet, cool, and distraction-free. Keep regular sleep hours and ban your computer and late-night TV watching. Instead, wind down with relaxing music or a warm bath.

Keep a Daily Journal

Keeping track of events, activities, symptoms, and mood changes can help you take charge of your fibromyalgia. It may make you aware of when symptoms start and, over time, what may be triggering them. Then you can work to eliminate triggers or learn coping strategies to lessen their impact.

Join a Support Group

Support groups can play an important part in the lives of people with a chronic illness. Whether in person or online, they offer a safe place to talk with others who may share your frustrations and concerns. Support groups provide emotional support, information, and tips for coping. Contact the Arthritis Foundation to find one in your area.

What is fibromyalgia?

Reviewed by William C. Shiel Jr., MD, FACP, FACR on Thursday, May 15, 2008
Fibromyalgia (formerly fibrositis) is a syndrome characterized by chronic pain, stiffness, and tenderness of muscles, tendons, and joints without detectable inflammation. It is also characterized by restless sleep, awakening tired, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and disturbances in bowel function. The condition is non-life-threatening and does not cause body damage or deformity. It affects an estimated 3-6 million Americans.

What does the name fibromyalgia mean?

The word fibromyalgia comes from the Latin term for fibrous tissue (fibro) and the Greek terms for muscle (myo) and pain (algia).

Is fibromyalgia a form of arthritis?

Fibromyalgia is considered a muscle condition. It is not a form of arthritis (a disease of the joints) because it does not cause inflammation in the joints. But fibromyalgia can (like arthritis) cause significant pain and fatigue, and it can similarly interfere with a person's ability to carry on daily activities.

Who is affected by fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia predominantly affects women (more than 80%) between the ages of 35 and 55. Less commonly, fibromyalgia affects men, children, and the elderly. It can occur independently or can be associated with another rheumatic disease, such as systemic lupus or rheumatoid arthritis

How To Reduce Cellulite

 How to reduce cellulite, a common skin problem which as yet has no permanent cure.

Step 1: What is cellulite?

Cellulite affects 80% of women and is caused by factors such as poor diet and lack of exercise.

It is the accumulation of toxins and fatty deposits that get trapped in the fat cells and pull on the surface of the skin.

Step 2: Drink water

Drinking water flushes out toxins, so you should drink 2 litres, or about eight cups, of water a day. It also helps the body to function more efficiently, helping with circulation and drainage.

Step 3: Lifestyle

To reduce cellulite drink less coffee, alcohol, and reduce the levels of fat in your diet, Try to exercise regularly and drink plenty of water.

Step 4: Dry body brushing

Use a dry body bristle brush which can be bought from a chemist or pharmacy. Start at your feet and massage your whole body working upwards towards the heart. Massage your body with deep, long strokes, focusing on the areas prone to cellulite.

How To Forget The Past

Susie Pearl from the Life Transformation Academy talks about how you can feel better about your life through positive thinking, and therefore have a happy life. Thinking of a bad past restrains people and never allows people's future to be better. She suggests that you make an agreement with yourself in which thoughts of the past will trigger you to think of something that you can think of every time negative things come up. You need to be in the present and consider the future to have a positive life and avoid focusing on the past.
How to forget the past? The past can wear away at us, and if you're thinking about bad stuff in the past, it can eat away. It can cause you bad feelings. It can stop you moving on in life.

And it can prevent you from taking new ideas or new relationships or new work, all sorts of things. Focusing on the past is not going to help you take new steps into your bright future. It's going to be blocking you and it can cause distress if you're focusing on negative stuff in the past.

So, it's a good thing to move on and into the present, or into the future. So, one way to forget the past, is to set up an agreement with yourself. Say to yourself, whenever your brain is going to start rerunning the movies about bad stuff that has happened in your life, you're going to flip out that image.

Tell yourself, I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to run those old movies from the past and bring yourself into the future, or bring yourself into the present. How do you do this? Set up ahead of time something that you're going to choose to think about whenever you run negative stuff from the past.

So, if for example, you've got a broken relationship, and you tend to go back into thinking about that and making yourself miserable, think of something that you're going to choose to focus on for now. It could be a new project you're doing, or a new point of focus on your life. So, think about what that is, and whenever you start rerunning that old movie, remind yourself immediately, and flip right in to this new idea you have about the present.

Don't spend time in the past unless you want to set up blocks in your life and live it all as if it was running in history. Running your life positively and getting a creative happy life is all about being the present and thinking about the future and making plan. So, spending time, hanging out in the past is often not the best thing.

It's simply a case of taking your attention off those past movies and putting your attention right back into the present and make sure that your present feels good. Make sure that wherever you're putting your attention is somewhere that's making you feel positive; it's making you feel happy; its making you feel excited. That's the route to having a happy life.
