Tremor can affect the way you carry out a broad range of everyday activities, from working and driving, to simply eating and brushing your teeth. But by embracing some changes in your approach to activities, you can maintain independence and continue many of your usual routines.

Accepting lifestyle adaptations and focusing on what you can do, will enable you to continue to complete everyday activities and enhance your enjoyment and quality of life.

Communication

Tremor can cause a number of communication difficulties: speech, facial expressions, handwriting and body language are affected in many people.

Alcohol

Many people find alcohol is an enjoyable part of their life, but too much can cause problems and worsen tremor
