How to Reduce Your Pain & Feel Great this Holiday Season
Keep your pain levels low and your energy high by adding these 5 tricks during the holiday season.
1. Visualize Success
Imagine New Year’s Day. See yourself vibrant and energetic, calm and centered, happy, and comfortable in your body WITHOUT PAIN. Choose a time each day to close your eyes and visualize this scene. Make a morning ritual of this visualization before you get out of bed.
2. Be Prepared
Spend one morning each week preparing clean, healthy snacks to have available when needed. Snack foods like chopped veggies and dip, celery and almond butter, tuna with gluten-free crackers and sunflower seed in the shell are your “go-to” while other people snack on carmel corn or some other tempting food that raises insulin and then causes an energy crash. Have healthy snacks with you when you leave the house and you’ll never be caught hungry. Preparation is one of the strongest habits to support success.
3. Add In to Crowd Out
Allow yourself to eat small portions of the holiday foods that you love but be sure to eat whole foods first. Fill your plate with salad, veggies and protein and eat those foods first. Add foods high in carbs to your plate as if they are samples. Take enough for 1 – 2 bites only.
You wake in the morning, achy and stiff. It takes you hours to get going.
You live with constant pain that gets in the way of almost everything you do.
You suffer with headaches that last all day…sometimes for days in a row.
You have stomach pain, sinus pain, anxiety or depression.
Living with pain of any kind changes your life. It may not look like it from the outside but it effects every decision you make. And often, what feels most frustrating is that you don’t seem to be getting much better.
I get it. I’ve been specializing in treating pain for over 35 years.
I have heard these stories hundreds of times from my patients over the years. And here’s what I’ve found…Pain Relief Works, if you are willing to make simple changes in your lifestyle and get medical treatment when needed.
I know how hard you’ve worked to succeed. I know you are committed to creating the life of your dreams.
This is not a simple task you’ve taken on. It requires breaking out of the comfort of the familiar and risking something new.
That’s why I want to be sure I share this potential threat to your success that if left unchecked could undermine your dreams.
Fear of Failure Can Stop You in Your Tracks!
How high is the cost of fear? Failure is a good motivator but problem is that failure is traumatic. When the trauma of past failures takes root, it leads to limiting beliefs – beliefs that hold you back.
I want to ask you a question. It’s a deep and probing one so get ready!
There is one guarantee in this life. You will die. If you are 50 or older, it is very likely that you have maybe 30 more years to live. That is 1,560 weeks and approximately 11,000 days.
So here is my question to you:
When all is said and done, will you regret that you did not uncover and take action on your life’s calling before it’s too late?
When I reached my mid-fifties I asked myself this same question. I had already created a good life but I was exhausted and loosing passion for my work. I was a successful acupuncturist and I was suffering. I craved more self-care, more balance and more joy but believed I could not succeed without personal sacrifice and stress.
The day I asked myself if I would die with regret was the day I committed to uncovering my life’s calling.
