1. Stay active, stay in motion- It's the golden rule of joint health- the more you move, the less stiffness you will have. So avoid keeping still or sitting for long hours and take regular breaks between work to move.
4. Don't stretch before exercise- Flexibility helps you move better. Stretching is a good way to boost flexibility. However, do not stretch right before exercising, when your muscles are cold. Do a little warm up before.
8. Don't go overboard with exercise- It's normal to have some muscle aches after working out, but if your body still hurts beyond 48 hours, you may have overdone it. Don't push yourself too hard as it can cause injury.
13. Use cold compress to relieve pain- Ice is a natural pain reliever. It numbs the ache and eases swelling. If you have a sore joint, apply a cold pack or ice wrapped in a towel. Leave it on for up to 20 minutes.
