Hey there, pain warriors! Did you know that more than 1 billion people have chronic pain worldwide? Can you believe it? We get it - chronic pain can be a real pain in the you-know-where. But fear not! We've got some fabulous tips to help you take control and feel amazing despite that pesky discomfort. Here are five ways you can feel fabulous despite having chronic pain!
5 Ways to Feel Fabulous Despite Chronic Pain
1. Meditate Your Worries Away
Stress and pain are like annoying partners in crime, always teaming up to make your life harder. But here's where meditation swoops in like a superhero! Not only does it zap stress, but it might even give pain a good kick too.
In fact, one study found that mindfulness meditation may be more effective than standard treatments at reducing chronic pain. While another study found similar results, and most participants were able to find better ways to cope with their pain!
Of course, meditation has already been shown to help reduce stress. Staying focused on your breath and sitting quietly can disrupt your negative thought loop and relax your body. And a relaxed body means less stress and reduced muscle tension contributing to chronic pain.
So, find a cozy spot, breathe deeply, and give those negative thoughts a run for their money!
2. Positive Affirmations: Your Pain-Busting Mantra
We all know chronic pain isn't just a physical thing. It's a total mood killer too. Bringing anxiousness and depression, which in turn makes the pain worse. It's like a vicious cycle. But don't fret! That's where positive affirmations come in handy. They're like little mantras that can flip your mindset to the sunny side of the street.
Here are some great examples of positive affirmations for chronic pain:
- I accept and am at peace with my pain
- I welcome my pain and understand it is part of the healing process
- My pain does not define who I am
- I know this pain will not last
- I am happy, healthy, and loved
- I love my body
- Pain is only temporary
Sometimes, chronic pain persists because we don’t allow ourselves to feel it, accept it and understand that it’s part of the healing process. It’s natural to want to run away from and try to stop that uncomfortable feeling (no one wants to be in pain!), but as hard as it may be, embracing it may give your body a chance to heal. Positive affirmations can help break you out of that loop and bring your mindset back into the light! storm.
3. Embrace a Hobby to Distract the Pain Goblins
Chronic pain can hog the spotlight, making it hard to think about anything else. But let's outsmart those pain goblins! Find yourself a shiny new hobby to keep your mind and hands busy. Dive into something you're passionate about, and watch as the pain and stress start to fade into the background.
You can also try finding a hobby that helps you connect with others! It's like a double whammy - you'll feel more supported and less alone on this pain-fighting journey!
4. Try Natural Pain Remedies
There are many natural pain remedies that can be used alongside conventional treatments to help make your pain more manageable, like:
For centuries, willow bark has been used to help with inflammation and pain. But, it’s more than just an old wives' tale! One systemic review found that willow bark extract was moderately effective at reducing lower back pain.
Traditionally, people chewed the bark, which contains salicin. Salicin is similar to the ingredient used in modern-day aspirin to help with pain. Today, you can buy willow bark tea, capsules, and tinctures to help manage your pain in a more natural way.
But don't forget to take it easy! Willow bark can cause some side effects – mostly stomach upset and prolonged bleeding – so keep this in mind as you start to introduce it into your routine.
This bad boy is packing a powerful punch with its curcumin, known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Turmeric has been around for centuries, helping people tackle pain, digestive troubles, and other pesky ailments like a pro. And one systemic review found that curcumin can be an effective addition to pain treatment plans.
If you're thinking of sprinkling this magic dust into your meals, you're on the right track! But it might be more effective to combat pain to incorporate turmeric supplements into your routine to take your pain-fighting game to the next level!
Like turmeric, ginger is also renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties that help kick pain to the curb! In fact, one review found that ginger contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can reduce pain. And another study found that ginger can help with muscle pain!
You can try adding more ginger to your diet or using supplements to help combat your pain and send it packing!
