Have you ever experienced one of those chronic pain flare-ups that seem to be lingering for days/weeks, and you start to feel nervous about when you’ll be able to do your exercises or just move.
I have had many of those. It’s unbelievably frustrating to be stuck at home, unable to go for a walk or do much because of the pain. And you know what’s even more frustrating? not able to workout and exercise/stay in shape if you’re something who prioritizes the importance of maintaining a healthy body. But some days it’s just not. gonna. happen.
So today I have for you some tips to help you not worry so much about weight gain, or completely going off track when you need rest during chronic pain flare-ups.

How to stay in shape during flare-ups
I sincerely hope these tips will help you, and I want to stress on the importance of giving your body what it needs, and not to stress so much about weight loss during the healing-rest period. Every time I ignored my body’s signals, and still pushed beyond my limits I ended up either injuring myself or getting in more pain. So always listen.
