In today's stressful world, it's hard to find the time to deal with pain. Instead, some may try to work through migraine headaches, or hope chronic pain will go away with a few aspirin or ibuprofen tablets. What is sometimes not realized, however, is that these pills can take a toll on the body, in the form of more pain later, or other nasty side effects like ulcers. Many don't even realize that there are natural pain relief options on the market or perhaps even in their own home! Best of all, there are things that can be done to be proactive or even fight back against pain.
Top 10 Tips to Live a Life Without Pain: Fight Back Against Pain
While no one wants to be in pain, people all too often don't consider what can be done to properly avoid it. Once in pain, all the focus is on dealing with it right now - they take something and hope for the best. What often isn't stopped to consider, however, is that everyone can actually be proactive and avoid dealing with pain in the first place. To start fighting back against the pain in your life, consider this list of tips to live without pain and how some of them might help on a daily basis.
- Exercise daily
- Move and use every joint in your body daily
- Lift weights
- Eat plenty of fruits & vegetables each day
- Improved stress management (mental stress has been proven in multiple studies to make physical pain worse!)
- Quit smoking - (smoking decreases circulation & impedes healing)
- Limit alcohol consumption
- Create and follow a daily schedule (this can help with stress!)
- Practice positive thinking exercises
- Get 6-8 hours of sleep nightly
Probably the most important items on the top 10 list are "exercise" and "healthy eating." By stretching and moving on a daily, one can drastically lower chances of having arthritis or other serious health issues later in life. As well, eating certain fruits, vegetables, and herbs can also help with overall pain management, especially natural pain relief spices like rosemary and turmeric. And both of these together often result in more restful sleep and lowered mental stress without any further changes!
