- Meditating every day has been clinically proven to help reduce pain levels so what do I have to loose, even 5 minutes a day is better than not at all.
- Gratitude! What a strange idea to bring into a list about coping with pain. However this is what I have been doing; most days I give thanks for the good things in my life or the good things in that day. This practice is outlined in a book I recently read called The Pain Book . This concept is a real eye opener and explains how incorporating gratitude into each day can help your mental state. I think this also relates to focusing on what you can still do, not what you have lost.
