Regular Physical Exercise

Obese individuals have a higher risk for developing psoriasis. Integrating regular physical activity into your day is part of a healthy lifestyle plan. Consult your physician before beginning an exercise program. Start with 15 minutes of stretching with flexibility exercises. Focus on building muscles to burn more calories and put less strain on joints. Daily walks with properly fitting walking shoes and water exercises, from swimming to water walking, are two great ways to build strength and flexibility.
