Having arthritis can impact many parts of your life. It can be difficult and time consuming to do day to day activities when you have painful joints.
It is beneficial to think about smarter ways to get things done by pacing yourself. Rather than pain controlling you, you can feel like you have more control, helping you to get the most out of your day.
Pacing is just one technique that is taught to help people cope with pain.
