Having MS does not mean you need to stop doing the fun recreation and leisure activities that you enjoy. Participating in recreation activities relaxes and rejuvenates us and plays an important role in increasing general health and well-being. Many activities such as skiing, golfing, sailing, biking, kayaking and hiking, to name a few, can be adapted to be enjoyed by people with various levels of ability.
