What are your favorite hobbies and distractions?

Whether it's a flare, doctor's appointments or something unrelated to ankylosing spondylitis, we all feel overwhelmed from time to time. What are you favorite ways to get your mind off things and feel better?

  1. Recently I've really gotten into audio books! I'm not huge on TV, but when I find myself overly anxious I try to find something to binge watch on Netflix. (Any recommendation's welcomed 😉) Playing video games with my boys is another great distraction!

    1. I like podcasts and mindless YouTube videos! A video about something 'light' like makeup or travel is really nice when everything else feels heavy. I also figure skate, and when I'm on the ice my mind feels free!

      1. Podcasts, journaling, or watching re-runs of Friends!
