Pain Management Tip of the Week

Pick a tip and try it for 1 day, or perhaps, 1 week.

Does your outlook or perspective change? Do you attitudes and beliefs about pain change for a moment?
Does the sensation of pain change even for a moment?
Do you feel more self-compassion? Are you able to feel more calmness and sense of control?
Which tip is your favorite? Which tip do you need to practice more?

A fun idea is to print this onto card stock and draw a card each day or week.

Golden Paste Recipe

This is great for anti-inflammation and to promote sleep. It tastes good with a little coconut or almond milk added and warmed before bedtime.    
1/2 turmeric (I use Banyan Products), 1-2 cups water (enough to keep it from burning). Cook 7 Minutes -- Then add: 1/3 cup ghee or coconut oil & 1/2 tsp black pepper. Mix, cover, refrigerate

States in white with dark background I AM ENOUGH
Look into the mirror and repeat this first to yourself, then aloud. Notice the difference. It is one thing to say affirmations, and another to feel them. Really feel this affirmation. If you have trouble feeling it, try placing your hand on your heart or your solar plexus and repeat the words.

Emotional Body Mapping

Here is a great technique to learn how much our thoughts and emotions effect our body. Draw a shape of a gingerbread man/woman. On a separate paper, list of thoughts you have. Then one by one, say that thought and notice what emotion you feel and where in your body, and mark it on the gingerbread person. Any negative thoughts, change to positive and notice what you feel and how the sensation changes in that area of your body.
