‘Pace yourself’ Travel tips for Britons with arthritis – ‘reduce risk of flare ups'

Becky added: “Pace yourself, don’t feel under pressure to see and do everything all at once.

“Try to check in on how you feel each day and take time to practice self-care. Make a schedule that works for you and don’t feel guilty about having a rest.

“When sightseeing, try to plan the main parts of your day and transport to get about. If there’s too much walking or high activity, you can use public transport or taxis between periods of high activity and take plenty of rest breaks.”

Arthr advises tourists not to put pressure on themselves to keep up with family and friends if they’re in pain.
