People who suffer with arthritis, either a little or a lot, need some exercise to help keep their joints moving. It is crucial, or they will ‘freeze’ up.

It is important to be aware of what kind of exercise to do and how much for your particular artriitis condition. You can hurt yourself if you do the wrong kind or too much.

Check with your doctor or physical therapist.

The Mayo Clinic says exercise, “… increases strength and flexibility, reduces joint pain, and helps combat fatigue.

Get some today. Exercise, that is. Eat right, take vitamins and nutritional supplements for more support, keep your immune system strong, drink lots of water, use orthopedic aids and keep moving.

I have considered having backyard chickens for quite some time now.  We have our garden the back yard, we do compost, we grow vegetables and flowers, among other things.  Its own little eco-system has developed back there.  The idea of chickens and having eggs (that I know what when into) seems to fit.  However, this article, http://eatlocalgrown.com/article/14761-things-you-need-to-know-about-owning-chickens.html?c=ngr, has given me a different perspective, which I appreciate.  I do like to go into things somewhat informed.  :)     mlr
