Today I'm going to talk about a subject that affects almost all of us out there at some point in our lives.  Pain.   For me it's not just any type of pain, it's neck and back pain.  

It all started when I was in high school and I took horseback riding lessons.  The instructor noticed something about the way I moved in the saddle and thought maybe something was going on with my spine.  So I went to a chiropractor and we discovered that I had crooked hips which threw my spine out of whack.  It was actually causing me to hold my posture in a certain way and tense up my muscles on a regular basis.   To make matters worse, I now work a job for the past 12 years where I sit in front of a computer all day hunching over my keyboard. 

Pain had become a normal part of life for me and then I realized I could do more to overcome the chronic pain and stop letting it dictate my life.  There are plenty of ways to live a normal life in the face of chronic pain and I'm going to share some tips with you today that you can use in your own life.

1. Changing Your Reaction to Pain
The first step to changing your reaction to pain is noticing HOW you react to it.  Like I said above, I was always tensing my shoulders up and that made it even worse.  Our bodies automatically react to pain in a way that isn't always beneficial.  Sitting correctly at your cubicle may feel uncomfortable at first because it doesn't allow you to embrace pain, but in the long run it's better for you.  Every time I notice myself hunching over, I sit up straight.  It's actually gotten to the point where my posture is very much improved when driving, sitting, and even when reading a book!  I can make a more conscious effort to take a deep breathe and then relax my muscles now. 

2. Stretching
You don't have to become a hardcore yoga rat, but you should really try some simple stretches on a daily basis.   Throughout the day at work, stand up tall and reach your hands to the ceiling.  Stretching lets oxygen flow into your muscles which can help you avoid hunching up out of pain.  Sometimes in the morning before I get out of bed I lay there and stretch my fingers, my toes, my legs, my arms, my neck, and back.    

3. Proper Nutrition
What you put into your body is super important especially when you are trying to overcome pain.  I make sure to eat a balanced diet with as little processed foods as possible.  This means I avoid anything in packages and stick to meats, veggies, fruits, etc.   I make sure I drink plenty of water as well.   I love taking care of my body so it can take care of me in return.

4. Dietary Supplements
This is one of the most important tips because it can positively affect many different aspects of your life.  I regularly take Curamin® Stop Pain Now, more specifically Curamin® Extra Strength 60 count as a safe, effective, and non-addictive way to find pain relief. 

I can focus on getting things done at work, exercise on regular basis, play on the floor with the dogs after work, and do plenty of gardening and yard work outside in the evenings without having to deal with pain, thanks to Curamin®.  

Curamin® has been recognized through the natural product industry for pain relief with 28 awards and counting!  It's currently the #1 selling brand and has been voted #1 for pain relief.  The way it works is that instead of masking occasional pain, it gets right to the source and stops it. 

There are hundreds of thousands of people around the world that use Curamin® like I do, and find relief from this herbal formula.  It's ingredients have been clinically studied and carefully selected for pain relief.   

Curamin® can be found at fine health food stores nation wide.  You can use the store located to find a retailer near you.  I purchase mine from The Healthy Grocer which is always an amazing place to get dietary supplements and herbal formulas. 


Consider Alternative Treatments

It’s true to say that there are also other, less conventional ways of living with pain in everyday life. For example, some people find that if they drink specific types of tea that contain certain ingredients, this aids them in feeling better. Of course, this is not going to work for everyone but it’s worth a shot to see if it could be the relief that you are looking for. As well as this, there are options such as delta 8 gummies available if you are okay with this kind of product.

Living with pain and how to cope is your own personal experience, and it’s going to take some time before you can find what works best for you. It’s a case of trial and error, but eventually you will find the thing that makes it a little easier for you.
How does pain affect your life on a regular basis and what steps are you going to take to live a more enjoyable life in the face of pain?
