Physical activity, defined as movement that requires energy, is important for your overall health – especially so if you have psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis (PsA). Exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
U.S. fitness guidelines recommend you get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise at least five times a week, plus additional strength training. If time is an issue, spread your activity during the day with three 10-minute blocks of moderate to vigorous activity.
Exercise doesn’t have to be a long, boring workout. If you pick an activity you enjoy, you are more likely to stick with it.
