Can you meditate your pain away? In my last blog post, Meditate To Reduce Stress, I wrote about how meditation reduces stress and improves your health. Here, I will specifically address how meditation can reduce pain.
Meditation involves training the mind. By meditating, you can release stress and tension in your body caused by the pain that you are experiencing. When you feel pain, these feelings are not just physical, but are emotional and mental as well. By relaxing and focusing your mind on places and feelings other than the present pain, you can reduce your pain. It may take some time and practice to learn to reduce pain by meditating, but I encourage you to try it.
