It has shown that those with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis that sweated through 30 minutes of indoor cycling intervals twice a week slashed indicators of the pain causing inflammation in their blood by an average of nearly 40% after 10 weeks. They also lost weight and body fat and their stamina also improved. High intensity training releases a hormone that helps convert unhealthy white fat to calorie burning brown fat.

For me fresh air, good music and exercise is the answer.
