Once you have a disability you absolutely need to look after your health which include stress management, plenty sleep, healthy diet and exercise. Stress management is a priority as it can make matters worse aside from the fact that it is also very hard on a body. Your diet is important and you want to eat to optimize vitality and energy. Even though it is something everybody have to live by, it is even more vital when you battle health complications and physical limitations.
Start focusing on feelings after you ate and opt for high quality protein such as soy products, tofu, seeds and nuts, beans, fish, dairy and organic meat. Also try avoiding refined carbs and sugars as these feel-good foods often leave you crashing soon after eating. Sleep is vital and once you established a healthy sleeping pattern you will feel revived during the day and positive in live.
Exercise remains important regardless of healthy body or disabled person. It is excellent physically but important mentally too as it will reduce depression, anxiety, stress and tension while you’re sleeping pattern will improve too. In this regard you should not dwell on what you cannot do and instead focus on finding exercises that works for you. In this same instance should you listen to your body and realize and accept limitations. No exercise can let you feel sick or hurt, break out in cold sweats, develop chest pressures, etc.
Another big problem that you have to avoid at all costs is comparing yourself either to yourself as you used to be or to others. You cannot compare your exercise efforts with people who have similar disabilities to you and never ever allow yourself to remind yourself of what you could do in the past compared to the present day.
