Pain Relieving Tips – Part 2

Hello again – here are more pain relieving tips that have helped me to feel better – I hope they help you as well!

Journal for HealthMassage – just using your hands to rub away an ache is a highly powerful self-love technique which sends the message to your body that you are present, aware and caring for yourself. If you have a hand-held massager this is also helpful and of course if it is in your budget a professional massage by a trained therapist will work wonders toward renewing and revitalizing your health and well being.

Heat – there are many forms of heat therapy to choose from such as a hot bath with Epsom salt, soaking your feet in hot water with Epsom salt and moist heat packs like physical therapists use. I use an electric hot pad on my back and hands and will add a wet wash cloth to give it the moist heat benefit. Jacuzzi baths are great if you have control over how they are cleaned – otherwise public ones can be a health hazard.

Rest – nothing better than good old fashion REST! I mean come on – this remedy is almost never recommended on ads because corporations can’t charge for it. Stopping to eat is a form of rest, stopping to visit with a friend is a form of rest, pull over at a park on your way home and just sit for 15 minutes. Get to bed earlier if you can and sleep in on the weekend. Look at a typical day and how you spend your time. Now look it over and notice how often you STOP to do just one thing or nothing at all? Give it a try you’ll love it!!

Fresh air – again the park idea for a break or lunch, walking or sitting on a bench is great. Notice what Mother Nature is doing all around you. I take fresh air breaks at least twice a day because I have found it clears my head better than any other remedy. Keeping your windows open is great but going outside and being in the vibration of nature is even better.

Watching or reading something funny – we tend to take our life and ourselves way too seriously and when we do we clench and tighten up both in body and mind. If you want a solution to come to you, you have to let it surface and laughter will do that extremely well. First it opens you to feeling good, and second it takes your mind off the “problem” long enough for the solution you were holding back to arise, surface and be realized.

“Do not take life too seriously – you will never get out of it alive!”
Elbert Hubbard

Listening to music – I often think that there is such a wide variety of music created simply because each unique Soul needs to ‘sing out” in its own unique manner. I love music, especially happy rhythm tunes but what I like best is that no matter what my mood is I can find a type that will speak to me and lift me out of my closed perception. Have you ever been moved to tears by a song? What about find yourself tapping your leg to a beat while driving? I have to be careful what I listen to while driving because I will go along with that speed! Let music move you if you are feeling stuck or in pain and let a new rhythm (answers) enter your life.

EFT – “emotional freedom technique” I mention this one often because it really has helped me over some major hurdles. I came to EFT late in my healing journey but it has helped me unlock some pain I couldn’t get access to. Again check out Nick Ortner at The Tapping Solution. It is something you can try on your own and then work with a practitioner if you need extra help.
