    Hi, I signed up for these daily tips although I don't have arthritis, per se. I've found a lot of useful tips that apply to all of us. At the bottom, you'll see the site to sign up for these (same sponsor as for fms/cfids). So relax & have a great Sunday!! Michele


    Tip of the Day for September 05, 2002

    Relaxation can help reduce the painful effects of physical and emotional stress. To effectively relax, try sitting or lying in a comfortable position with your head supported and with your eyes closed. Be sure to focus on your breathing, with deep, slow breaths and feel your stomach move in and out with each breath. Don’t chase away thoughts that enter your mind but focus on breathing and staying calm. Also, don’t worry about falling asleep. Next time, try to stay awake for the entire period.
