Self Care Tips

Access self-care tools to make the most of your at home resources for easing pain and stress.

HEAT

I am a huge advocate for what heat therapy can do to help you relax and to mitigate pain. Your nervous system loves it. Use rice or flax pillows that can be warmed up in the microwave while you are working, a heating pad as you sit on the couch, or a long soak in a hot bath or shower at the end of the day.

MOVEMENT

You may be stuck in makeshift office chair all day, or less active than you are accustomed to, or feeling low and stuck on the couch. Moving your body will get some endorphins pumping and lubricate your stiff joints.
Take a walk! Use soup cans as weights! Play hide-and-go-seek with your cat! Sit on a yoga mat and make shapes with your body!

BREATH

Take a moment. Take a breath, unclench your jaw, relax your shoulders. If you are feeling overwhelmed or experiencing an anxiety attack, try this grounding exercise that engages all of your senses:
Identify 5 things you can see, 4 things you can feel, 3 things you can hear, 2 things you can smell, 1 thing you can taste.
