Coping with Chronic Pain
This is the monthly episode of the St. Margaret Foundation Mindful Break - a free 30-minute video with instruction on mindfulness, relaxation practices, and a short meditation to help you revitalize your life.
Do you struggle to cope with chronic pain? Perhaps you are dealing with sleep disturbances, fatigue, decreased appetite, mood changes, or low self-esteem due to your struggle with chronic pain. Maybe your pain is from an injury, or maybe you're dealing with mental pain. Whatever form your pain may take, it can be very difficult to cope with.
It's easy to feel discouraged or defeated by chronic pain, but relaxation techniques and mindfulness are both effective treatments. Click on the video to watch the session.
