1, Exercise

Exercise is just as important as it is for any other adult.

It is good for the mind and necessary to maintain the health of your heart and lungs.

There are many types of exercise that you could do, such as yoga, aerobics, and cardio… and yes, you can do it all in your wheelchair!

Exercise also helps you stretch out the tension in your body.

Yoga is the perfect activity to do to maintain your mobility and stretch out the tensions.

It keeps your joints flexible and relaxes your body after a routine.

2, Maintain Good Postures When Sitting

Studies show that sitting for long periods is bad for the body.

It is difficult for a wheelchair user to avoid this problem.

The best way to make the situation a little more positive is by maintaining good postures.

To main good posture, make sure you keep your feet, knees, hips and shoulders in a straight line as you sit.

This will prevent your body from being sore.

Due to these reasons, it is important to exercise and stretch whenever you can.

Sitting takes up a good amount of your day, which can lead to health problems.

To prevent pressure sores, use ergonomic cushions to relieve the pressure and change your sitting position every other hour.

3, A Good Night’s Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep also applies to any other adult.

Your body and mind must rest from a day of being active.

Going to sleep early and waking up early is the best schedule to have.

 

4, Choosing Healthy Food and Beverages

Sugary and high-calorie beverages, such as juice, sodas, and alcohol, cause people to gain unwanted weight.

Rather than choosing those types of drinks, choose water instead. Water keeps you hydrated, and it has no unhealthy ingredients.

Choosing the right food is just as important as beverages.

Fruits and vegetables are the best choices to keep a healthy diet.

 

5, Be Mentally Healthy

Mental health is just as important as your physical health.

Just because it cannot be seen does not mean that it is not there.

Your mental health is directly connected to your physical health, and they affect one another.

Depression and anxiety are common mental health that people experience.

Seek help if you are experiencing these symptoms.

They are treatable with counseling, medications, or talking to a friend or family member.
