Work with your doctor as your partner in developing your pain management plan.

5. Keep a list of positive

statements. Place written positive statements on your refrigerator or on your bathroommirror. 6. Make a list of situations that could curtail the positive lifestyle changes that you have made. Whatever they are, prepare a response plan for dealing with any disruptions. 7. When you reach a goal,

reward yourself with something enjoyable.

8. Seek support from others who can understand chronic

Living with chronic pain is not always easy. There are not any quick fixes to help with pain management. The rest is up to you. If you want to have a better quality of life, spending too much time reading about your condition discussing your pain can be counterproductive. Instead, work toward health promotion solutions and set goals to better manage your pain. IT’S UP TO YOU.

pain and can help you through difficult days.

9. Keep your living

quarters healthful. You are the product of your environment . Surround

yourself with things that are conductive to good health habit. Grow a plant, light an aromatherapy candle, play relaxing music or share an amusing story with your friend. 10. Each day, include a balance

of work, rest, exercise, relaxation, and social activities.

Relaxing is an important part of a pain-free lifestyle. Follow these tips to help with your stress and pain.

» » Take a stroll outside. Take a deep breath of fresh air; feel the gentleness of the breeze; see the changing pattern of nature. » » You are standing in line at the bank. Rise up slowly on your toes, breathe deeply and relax. » » Every 20 minutes at work, take three deep breaths and gently adjust your posture. Notice that you automatically relax on exhalation. » » You are just about to fall asleep or you have just awakened. Breathe deeply and allow your whole body to become relaxed. » » Allow yourself to get more sleep and rest. » » Stretch frequently throughout the day. Keep up your exercise. » » Lighten your schedule of responsibilities and tasks. Postpone unimportant meetings or appointments.

» » Do something nice for your body such as having a massage. » » Take time to plan: call ahead for directions, contact the store to check availability, keep a good map handy, stock up on necessary supplies to head off stress and problems. » » When stress is rising, get away. A short time in another place or doing something enjoyable will renew your perspective and restore balance. » » Allow extra time between appointments and enough time to complete errands and tasks. Expect that everything will take more time than anticipated. » » Practice positive affirmation of yourself to encourage and remind yourself of your own goodness and ability to cope with stress and illness. Tell yourself: “I am learning how to balance work and play in my life.”

HOW TO COPE WITH STRESS

Certain behavior and lifestyle choices can have an effect on your stress level. It’s important to balance personal, work, and family needs. Also, limit alcohol consumption, get regular exercise, get enough sleep, and eat a balanced diet as these are all things that improve your body’s ability to handle stress.

Positive Coping Responses

Negative Coping Responses • Being critical of yourself • Driving too fast • Drinking alcohol • Using recreational drugs to calm yourself • Avoiding social contact • Yelling at your spouse, children, or friends

• Listening to music • Playing with a pet • Laughing • Crying

• Praying or going to church • Practicing deep breathing • Meditation or muscle relaxation

Finding Time to EXERCISE

With everything going on, finding 30 minutes a day for exercise can be challenging, but not impossible. Even people with the busiest schedules can find room for fitness. The key is to make it as convenient as possible for your particular lifestyle. Here are some suggestions:

◊ Squeeze in a few 10-minute walks on your breaks, lunch time or with your dog before and after work. ◊ Exercise while running errands. Claim the back row of the parking lot as your own or park a few blocks away and walk quickly to your destination. ◊ Wake up 30 minutes earlier two days a week to exercise. Take time for you before the day gets too busy is great self care. ◊ Ride your stationary bike or walk on the treadmill.

◊ Make family time exercise time by taking a group walk before or after dinner or schedule an active outing like a trip to the zoo. ◊ Exercise while watching TV. ◊ Take the stairs whenever you can. ◊ Schedule exercise like any other appointment. ◊ Do what works for you. ◊ Whatever option you choose, make daily exercise a daily habit you keep.
