Self Care at Home
Individuals with this disorder should be vigilant about maintenance of normal body weight to prevent obesity, which generally involves a healthy eating plan (sometimes designed with the assistance of a health care professional) to compensate for the general tendency to avoid physical activity.
Athletic pursuits that are less competitive (swimming, walking, yoga, chair exercise, noncompetitive martial arts) tend to be more tolerable to individuals with this disorder and therefore may be more likely to result in life long pursuits.
