3 Simple Ways to Limit Daily Discomfort

By Genevieve Cunningham

Do you feel pain on a daily basis? Unfortunately for many, the answer is yes. And the older you get, the more likely you are to join this group. Discomfort happens all over the body -- the back, neck, joints. Sometimes the pain is truly debilitating, especially in the case of injury. But other times, the pain is just ... there. It's ever-present and nagging. It might not put you in the bed, but it certainly drains your energy. Luckily, there are a lot of things we can do to minimize and even prevent this kind of discomfort. If you're ready to feel your best every day, take a look at these tips for pain relief and prevention in everyday life. 

Stretch and Move

The more you stretch and move your body, the less prone it is to injury and pain. Stretching lengthens and loosens the muscles. Movement helps lengthen and loosen too, but it also helps build strength and stamina. When all of these benefits are combined, it means a healthier, stronger, more flexible body as a whole. And it's probably not hard to see why this leads to less overall pain and discomfort. The hardest part of this prevention method is the beginning, but once you get started and work through the pain and soreness, you'll likely never want to go back to a sedentary lifestyle. 

Get Better Rest

Rest is a crucial part of a healthy life - and it's especially important if you're trying to live a comfortable, pain-free life. If the body doesn't get enough rest, it suffers. You suffer. You'll be more likely to experience pain, stiffness, soreness, and other frustrating side effects. But how do you actually get more rest? You make it a priority. You go to bed on time, even if you have work to do. You invest in a comfortable and supportive pillow and mattress. You wind down with a familiar routine. As your rest improves, you may find that the general discomforts of life slip away and leave you feeling stronger and better than ever. 

Improve Your Posture

Even if you had impeccable posture at one time, it often diminishes over time. Whether it's from habits or society or the wearing down of the body, we often have to really fight for good posture as we get older. How? We can do exercises that target the shoulders and back. We can also constantly check in with our own bodies and make corrections throughout the day. Poor posture isn't an easy habit to break, but with consistency and time, you can improve both posture and pain for better health and appearance. 

Eliminating pain isn't always easy, but it's definitely worth it. It takes patience and dedication. You can try massage, chiropractic care, hot baths - and these can work! You can also use these tips to slowly eliminate pain, improve health, and leave you feeling better than ever every single day.
