Helpful Lift MS® Tips and Tricks

  •   July 11, 2016

Tips, tricks, pointers, helpful hints—no matter what you call them—these little nuggets of knowledge may help make day-to-day activities easier. That’s why we’re launching a new series of posts called Lift MS® Tips & Tricks.

These posts will feature practical lifestyle ideas here on the Lift MS® blog, as well as in our Facebook community. Hopefully, they'll give you some great ideas for your daily life.

Do you have any helpful tips and tricks of your own? We hope that you’ll share them with us through a comment below. Who knows? You may see your very own tip highlighted in one of our future posts.

Let’s get the ball rolling with these handy ideas.


  1. Get a grip. Make gripping, turning and twisting easier by wrapping a few rubber bands around household objects that could use more traction, such as doorknobs or kitchen utensils.
  2. Just zip it! Add a small pendant, key chain, or notebook ring to the zipper pull of your favorite jacket, and zip up.
  3. Scuff up your new shoes. We’re serious! Give leather-soled shoes more traction by using light sandpaper to remove slick surfaces.
  4. Double up. Save time in the kitchen by doubling your favorite recipes. Freeze half for another day, and dinner’s on the table in no time!
