Staying Active & Exercising on Dialysis

No need to take up a sport or join a gym – exercise is any kind of physical activity, so don’t think you can’t do it. Simply taking a walk is exercise that provides you with immediate and ongoing benfits.

Doing just a little more physical activity every day is great for your health – and getting into a regular exercise routine is even better. Of course, you should always talk to your doctor before beginning any kind of exercise program.

Simple steps to get started

 

Choose an activity that you’ll enjoy

This is absolutely the number one thing to consider. You’re much more likely to keep doing something you love.

Start slowly and sensibly

You don’t have to run a marathon on your first day. Just dedicate 10-15 minutes to something as simple as walking around your neighborhood or actively cleaning your house – and build from there.

Exercise with a friend

You can motivate each other – the buddy system really works.

Use a smartphone or pedometer

Consider wearing a pedometer or downloading an app to track your exercise progress and provide encouragement to keep you going.

Set goals and reward yourself for reaching them!

From stretching while watching TV to more aerobic activities like swimming, physical exercise offers these benefits:

Enhances your mood

Helps your body become stronger

Increases flexibility

Relieves stress
