Staying active

However MS affects you, exercise will help you stay as healthy as possible. It 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.

We know that sometimes, MS symptoms can make it hard to be active. So we've created a range of workouts designed to suit different levels of mobility. There is an audio described version of this video.
