THE IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME: BUILDING EXERCISE INTO YOUR DAILY LIFE

See how many gentle stretching exercises you can incorporate in your daily routine: for example, walk upstairs on your toes to stretch the backs of your legs; reach up to shelves with both hands, hold the stretch then relax; do loose swinging movements, running on the spot, or the wet dog shake, when you are waiting for the kettle to boil; before getting into the bath hold the side and bend your knees a few times; rotate your ankles or massage your hands as you watch television.
Building these movements into your daily routine is useful if you do not feel up to swimming, walking or more strenuous exercise. Remember what happens to your circulation if you don’t move. Perhaps the next stage could be walking briskly for thirty minutes daily and then progressing to aerobic exercise. It is easier and safer to have some supervision. Join a class or take the advice of the fitness coach at a leisure centre. The exercises might feel like a terrible chore at first but just keep going; when you feel the benefits you will be more enthusiastic.
