Approaching Holidays Don’t Get Stressed Out El Paso, TX.

Share

The holiday decorations are out, possibly still in the box or boxes, you’re browsing all the deals and recipes. Family is coming in ready to spend quality family time and catch up on everything. All the while juggling bedding, seating arrangements, whose gluten-free, etc.

Chronic pain is exhausting all on its own. Add the approaching holidays to the mix and there is a set up for a perfect storm of pain and possibly more injuries. And just a reminder the holidays aren’t even here yet! But like most of us, we are already getting into holiday mode, which equals stress, stress, and more stress.

Everyone needs to take a breath/break in order to manage the pain. Here are some positive ways to de-stress to take the pressure off, and be in a  frame of mind to enjoy the celebration.

Know Your Limitations

Living with chronic pain means that you may not be able to do everything you’re planning. Sometimes, traditions need to change.

  • Do not beat yourself up if it doesn’t all come together. Don’t worry, everyone will survive.
  • View it as an opportunity to bond with the family and non-family members and show them how to carry on traditions.

Make Sure You Exercise

  • When the body gets moving and the heart pumping, the brain releases endorphins, and these relieve stress and keep you in a better mood.
  • Exercise helps to burn off the day’s worries, empties out the mind and stretches the muscles keeping them from tightening up. Better yet exercise will help you sleep way better at night. However, check with a doctor or chiropractor before starting an exercise program.

Make Sure To Get Time For Yourself

Allow plenty of time for yourself every day. Your body and mind need it. Relax and enjoy yourself with whatever calms you down and makes you happy. It could be jamming a musical instrument, sewing, playing a favorite video game, watching your favorite show/movie, etc. Whatever it is, take the time to unwind and really enjoy the beginning of the holiday season.

Don’t Get On the Holiday Rollercoaster

Chronic pain during the holidays can bring elevated levels of pain. Making preparations for company, buying, cleaning up and readying the home for friends and family is all good. But don’t immerse yourself in the process. It does not have to be perfect, allow it to be what it is! Family, friends coming together, enjoying the atmosphere and being thankful for everything.

For those with chronic back pain or other diseases affecting the spine, the holidays can take its toll on the body and mind and take you out of the game.

Three Important Things:

  • Enlist help: Don’t be afraid or too proud to ask for help. Family members, neighbors, and friends can make the occasion so much more enjoyable and safer. The jobs get done quicker, more efficiently and can be fun with everybody participating, so it doesn’t feel like work.
  • Take a seat: Don’t forget to breathe and breathe deeply, drink some tea or water to stay hydrated.
  • Go to bed earlier: During the holiday’s serious rest is a must. This means allowing yourself to sleep late or take full naps because your body is telling you it needs it.

Doing these three things can lessen the pain and increase the joy! When your body is truly healthy, you will arrive at your optimal fitness level proper physiological fitness state.  We want to help you live a new and improved lifestyle. Over the last two decades, while researching and testing methods with thousands of patients, we have learned what works effectively at decreasing pain while increasing human vitality.
