Mindfulness Practices & Lupus
Wednesday, August 23, 2017
6:30pm to 7:30pm
Pain is a persistent part of daily life for many people living with lupus--more than 90% suffer from joint or muscle pain over the course of their illness. Physicians can recommend an arsenal of prescription and over-the-counter medications. But when the pain just won't leave your body, you can also turn inward. Mindfulness practices have been shown to reduce stress, decrease fatigue, and improve a sense of wellbeing in many settings. Join us for this session to learn more about mindfulness and see demonstrated practices to incorporate into your everyday life.
