Today we chat about pain. Chronic pain is a major public health problem with 1 in 5 Americans reporting chronic pain. More than 30% of Americans who are prescribed a medication for their pain end up addicted. There is science to suggest that mindfulness-based practices can help self-manage pain (e.g, imagery, meditation). Building on what we talked about with self-love the body and our beliefs, Doug and Jen share their personal journey with pain, how they have learned to shift their perspective and feel better and make suggestions for the listener. We hope you enjoy.
We mentioned the book Explain Pain and/or Explain Pain Supercharged in the show. Head on over to Amazon if that is of interest to you!
