I'm serving at my church's youth group trip in Daytona Beach, what are some of your tips to avoid flaring while I'm there?

Also, I have lupus.

Pace your activities with rest periods. Pay attention to the signals your body sends out. Stay hydrated. Try to rest as well as possible. If the sleeping space is a cot or sleeping bag on the floor, purchase a twin size foam bed topper and take with you for extra comfort. Walmart sells the waffle foam topper pretty cheap, and it's better than nothing on a hard surface. The same goes for sitting surfaces; take a cushion or pillow for comfort. Hugs love & prayers for a fun, fulfilling, and as pain free trip as possible! 🙂💕🙏🌸

Beware of the sun especially with lupus! Big floppy hat and avoid the sun. Stay hydrated do not get over heated and take lots of breaks. Pace yourself. Have fun!
