✅ Defining terms: What is a flare? What triggers a flare?
✅ Focus on Pain: Tools to prevent pain (including exercise, nutrition, joint protection, sleep and stress management), tools to minimize existing pain (from hot and cold packs and beyond!)
✅ Focus on Fatigue: Tools to prevent and minimize existing fatigue (including energy conservation, task simplification, more lifestyle factors such as exercise and sleep, and more)
✅ Focus on Stress management: How mindfulness and ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) can help you cope with the unpredictability of flares
