Relaxation #AtoZofMS #AtoZChallenge #poetry

Regular relaxation is really important to manage the symptoms of MS.

Stress is a trigger
it makes my MS symptoms
so much worse

exhausts me causing
pain and fatigue

I must rest
Take time out regularly

Not easy for me
I've never liked to rest
But it works

So I'm learning
to relieve tension, chill out
put myself first

Regular relaxation can help you decrease tension in muscles, lower your blood pressure and slow your heart rate. Relaxation can help with fatigue as it promotes good sleep patterns, increases benefit from rest periods during the day and can help to manage stressful situations.
