Staying active

However multiple sclerosis affects you, exercise will help you stay as healthy as possible. Exercising can  also improve your mood and some MS symptoms.

All kinds of movement can be good for you. You might enjoy sports, while someone else may prefer Tai Chi or yoga. Gentler activities like gardening and cleaning use your muscles too.

The important thing is to find exercises to suit you.
