Tai Chi

Tai Chi for Psoriatic Arthritis | Everyday Health

I took a tai chi class this week and it was interesting. It is 108 slow continuous rhythmic movements. It is moving meditation for the body. I am committed to learning the discipline and plan to add it to my exercise routine for additional strength and mental wellness.

According to Huston & McFarlane (2016) there is evidence that tai chi is good for a variety of illnesses including hypertension, heart failure, stress, arthritis, improves balance and sleep.

Find an exercise discipline to assist you to become your best self. We have to stay active and move as we age, or you become like a stiff rubber band.

Stay well and remember exercise maybe the key you are missing to increase your health and wellness.
