Chronic diseases require minute-to-minute management. Such constant attention creates a lot of stress for chronic disease patients, stress that results in exhaustion and other ailments like high-blood pressure or weight gain.
There are some simple steps borrowed from a Type I and Type II diabetes guideline that can help all sufferers of chronic illness get through the never-ending ups and downs of disease management:
- Reach out to loved ones
- Rid the mind of negative thoughts.
- Assume an optimistic attitude.
- Think of exercise as fun, and set realistic goals for a physical routine.
- Sleep more.
- Keep a sense of humor.
Following these guidelines should provide a structure for the day-to-day control of a disease, as well as happiness.
