Your path when living with MS is filled with important interactions. Whether it’s with spouses, family members, employers, co-workers, friends, or dating partners, your MS may disrupt these connections and impact your abilities and perceptions to thrive in your home, work, and relationships. In this multidisciplinary discussion, we will discuss managing potential barriers in these areas of wellness, including tools, adaptations, accommodations, and members of the healthcare team who can assist.
Wellness is an“actively pursued goal to be in good health.” Learn how your food, exercise, and lifestyle choices can improve your MS and your overall quality of life. Understand how rehabilitation and physical activity can contribute to managing MS symptoms and overall health; how healthy eating and exercise participation is the first step to reducing those barriers; and how small steps you can take today can lead to big rewards in the future. Time will be allotted for questions to our panel of MS care experts.
Emotional, cognitive, and spiritual well-being are the cornerstones of a full, functional life. Focusing on problem solving strategies to overcome barriers, we will discuss how to manage common mood and cognitive changes while incorporating spiritually and mindfulness tools. Learn how taking control of these “invisible” aspects can help you stay motivated and resilient, improve relationships, and enhance all of the areas of your health and wellness.
