1. Create a gratitude jar
This January, start the year with an empty jar. Each week, add a a note with a good thing that happened. On New Year's Eve, empty the jar and read about the amazing year you had.
2. Trash the self-trash talk
While chronic pain hurts, it’s the “struggle” with pain that causes the suffering. We can begin to change the way we think about and react to pain by removing the negative trash talk we say to ourselves each day. This type of thinking increases focus on the pain, reinforces it, and can make the pain feel worse.
3. Get off the chronic pain merry-go-round
Stop searching for a cause and cure to your pain. Accept it as your new normal knowing hurt doesn't always mean harm.
