Set your timer for 1 minute. Complete 3 sets of 1 minute walking lunges and 1 minute high knees. Rest 1 minute in between each exercise.

Exercise is not just good for your muscles. When your muscles push and pull against bones, this also helps to build and preserve bone mass. Weight-bearing exercise is best for building bone mass.

Surrender to Solace

Sometimes as you battle lupus you have to allow yourself to enjoy over sleeping. You have to indulge in lazy Sunday afternoons and procrastinate things that may demand your attention. You have to sing songs and sip an occasional adult beverage in bed while you forget the damage lupus has done. You have to remind yourself to enjoy the beauty of nothingness and replenish the energy that lupus and people drain. You need to get wrapped in cozy blankets and covered in oversized sweaters with the air condition on just in case you get hot. In the midst of this lupus life, we must remember to surrender to the solace of alone time where we can clear our head and replenish our soul for anything new that may arise from lupus. #LupusInColor


My mind is always racing with thoughts about my battle with Lupus. Most times I am trying to find tranquil thoughts to offset the raging war in my body. As one can imagine this is a constant struggle that is sometimes won with tranquility and other times submitted to the barrage of constant pain. Either way it always has my mind in constant thought. I find myself always trying to find a way to combat negative thoughts about this disease. In that process I have found my mind wandering from my own needs to the needs of those I love and share my life with day to day.

I know many will say Aww what a noble gesture to think of someone other than yourself. But, I believe it is sometimes a trick to bring back excessive negative thoughts about dealing with Lupus. The reason I say this is because at times I get into a mood and in thought about how painful it is for me to see my loved ones hurt and have to deal with me as I deal with this disease. I look at my friends and family and the hardest thing for me is to see my loved ones miss the old me I used to be. I mean really if that is not my mind playing tricks on me trying to allow the negative to slip back into my thought pattern I don’t know what is.

The irony of it all, thinking about the feelings of someone else while being thrusted into a plethora of negative feelings and emotions. It’s crazy how that negative can creep in and slowly try to poison your mind and soul.

Sometimes I have to just shake myself out of it and remind myself of the good things that come out of having a life altering disease. I have to shake the negatives off in order to truly begin a journey into a tranquil way of life.

I am on a quest to live in tranquility through thoughts that increase my mental health in order to generate a better physical body. There is power in positive thinking and there is healing in tranquility.

I have lupus, Lupus does NOT have ME! #LupusInColor
