What Gives You Hope?

Hope, for all of us, is out there. It is a matter of finding it. Some of us find hope in personal relationships, in the arts, in the MS community, in religion and/or on-line.

I find hope in the kindness of others and remembering to pay it forward.

Best always,

My MS Survival Guide - Tip #6 Pilates!

Hi Everyone,

Last month I posted my MS Survival Guide: How to Improve Coping Skills and Tame that Monster! That monster being that crazy person I can sometimes turn into if I do not manage things appropriately. So, in addition to Breathe, Meditate, Grieve (still working on this one), Improvise and Journal, I would like to add tip #6, Sign Up for Pilates!  

6. Sign up for Pilates. Balance, body awareness, stress reduction, flexibility and strength.  These are good things right? I should say so which is why I just signed up for my first Pilates class. I must admit, however, that I am a little bit nervous. I niggle about what may happen while I’m on the Reformer. Will my Lhermitte’s fire up? I am not in the mood for the spine buzz thank you very much. Will my body heat up and cause my legs to burn? Will I have enough energy? Definitely some downsides. Luckily, the upsides outweigh all this and I am looking forward to having Pilates work wonders for my stress and, in turn, work wonders for my MS. I am ready!  I’ll let you know how it goes!

P.S. Active MSers has a great article on Pilates and MS. Click here to read it.
