Welcome to the group. Chair Exercise is great for Arthritis. You can still get a pretty good workout by doing them.
Take care, Jennylee
"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

Why wait till you get home....why not also do some exercises at work? I know that when I was still working, there were a series of stretches I would do at my desk. And you can always stretch or move your feet, even sitting at a desk.
Even trips to the bathroom can include a few wall push-ups.
My day is not complete until needle, thread & fabric meet!!

Mrs!!! You've come to the right place! Check out the videos sent to you, all you need is a chair! I love that I can do this at home alone! On the other hand, getting out and about is excellent exercise in itself---try to go to water aerobics; that's so good for osteo arthritis!!! Welcome to Chair Exercises!!!!
