Advice & Tips: I have noticed that if I miss about three days of exercise, my medications don't work nearly as well. So one of the unexpected positive effects of exercise is that I need less medication that I would need otherwise. Also, while (mild) fatigue is a side effect, I have much more energy when I exercise regularly, than when I don't. I usually exercise first thing in the morning, because that's when I feel the best. If I exercise in the afternoon, I tend to freeze unless I take a nap first.

Advice & Tips: I'm lumping all my aerobic exercise (exercise bike, walking, running, elliptical) into one category - physical exercise. I do about forty minutes each day. I still list weights separately. I've found that my Parkinson's is much better controlled when I exercise regularly. The cost I list is the cost of my gym membership, plus a little extra for shoes and exercise clothes.

Advice & Tips: Sometimes I have a headache and I don't go but if I still go I find that the headache goes away. It's great for self-esteem, energy levels and mood. I take classes and I like this because I can decide that today I want a danse mix class instead of toning and maybe I want to try zumba. It's a lot of un and I'm more relaxed in my everyday life which is very sedentary. Plus I walk every week at least 1hour, maybe 2 hours.
