    5 minute balance routine: https://youtu.be/inO9BStdPcc 
    10 balance exercises using a shoe box: https://youtu.be/Dv-JryhbFd4
    Balance and cardio follow along: https://youtu.be/i85xC8pWTEI 


    Balance is incredibly important when it comes to not only feeling more confident on uneven surfaces but also when searching for osteoarthritis pain relief. Oftentimes I find balance is left out from exercise routines. Even if it is included, just simply being able to stand on one leg may not be enough to unlock confidence while adventuring or to allow for significant pain relief. In this episode you’ll hear some balance examples as well as why it’s important to include in your daily routine.

    Watch the video on joint pain and menopause here: https://youtu.be/J3soH57W1AU


    I was joined by Elizabeth Ward, a registered dietitian and co-author of The Menopause Diet Plan as we discussed all things joint pain, menopause, and food! She answered: 


    What’s the most surprising thing you’ve found in the research around menopause?Is dairy something to avoid? Should gluten be avoided? What is the best thing to focus on when it comes to weight loss and menopause?Rules of thumb for the amount of foods to be eating 

    Food is so incredibly important when it comes to managing joint pain related to osteoarthritis. Menopause can actually trigger joint pain as well due to decreasing estrogen levels. It is so important to place priority not just on food but on exercise as well!

    If you want to easily walk up stairs and do it without pain- this is the episode for you. 
    Your ability to climb stairs says a lot about your strength and your pain levels believe it or not, according to the research. 
    Read the blog post here diving into all things stair climbing and osteoarthritis: https://keeptheadventurealive.com/is-stair-climbing-good-for-osteoarthritis/

♥️ this show! 🙏

52 yo with left hip arthritis. I really connect with this show and just hearing other peoples stories gives me hope. I use a saddle chair when working at the computer. That has been. Game changer for me. Strengthening the core and leg muscles also very helpful for me. Thank you everyone!!
