Chronic pain not only affects the body, but it also affects emotions, relationships, and the mind. It can cause anxiety and depression, which can worsen the pain.
These tips can help you cope with the changes accompanying growing older and live life to the fullest.
- Exercise – while it may seem counterintuitive, movement helps reduce pain, try walking every day.
- Positive thoughts – watch a funny movie, listen to music, talk to a friend.
- Relax/Rest – adequate sleep can help you stay positive
- Eat healthy – taking care of yourself gives you a feeling of control and independence.
There are good days and bad days scattered throughout our lives. Aging doesn’t mean you’re doomed to a steady state of decline. Staying healthy and feeling your best is important at any age
