Crisp air and cool nights have arrived. As seasons change, your relapsing MS (RMS) symptoms may be affected. We’re here to help you with five tips to ease the transition into cooler weather.
- Dress in layers. Seasonal changes often mean unpredictable temperatures indoors and out. Prepare for all types of weather by dressing in layers so you can easily cool down or warm up.
- Take your time. Although the falling leaves and snowy trees may be beautiful, they can also cause challenges. Walk slowly and pay attention to the ground to avoid falling or tripping.
- Practice self-care. During any transition, it’s important to recharge and reset. Taking time to do something for your body or mind each day can have a positive impact on your overall health and mood.
- Make a plan. As holidays and colder weather approach, stress levels can increase. Stay calm by preparing for the months ahead with a calendar of events or a checklist of items.
- Keep a journal. Track your therapy routine and RMS symptoms by downloading the COPAXONE iTracker® 2.0 app. Be a self-advocate and use the journal to discuss any concerns at your next doctor’s appointment.
We hope these tips can help you find comfort through seasonal transitions. Tell us what works for you and we may feature it in an upcoming blog post!
