Drawing and coloring distract me from pain and really help my anxiety. And also listening to music while doing it really takes away stress. And we all know that stress, anxiety and pain all hang out together..add some depression and yup..we are messed up. Try it though(music and coloring) you will see how it helps.
Yes meditation and mindfulness is wonderful; as well as taking time to just sit with yourself. Which might sound weird. But the “Be still and know.” Quote!!
Just being still with youself, quiet the mind, the every noisy thoughts running through and just see yourself your body, mind, soul even. See where the pain is and isn’t and then release the tension around the pain.
It takes practise but it is worth it.
I lay in my bed. I start imagining everything from my toes and right up my body are just numb. It is as though I put my own body to sleep, I become weightless. I actually see myself laying there. I don't know what this is, it's weird but it happens. It all feels somewhat relieving ....then the darn phone rings....
