Often we hold our breath or hyperventilate when we are stressed, but when we stop and allow our breath to breathe us, calmness and feeling supported can comfort us.

Everything changes, including our sensations of pain. This technique helps to decrease fear of pain as you learn to objectively observe how it changes while learning to feel safe in your body.
Observing Thoughts Journaling Exercise
Have your journal ready and some cotton balls (or a bag or box of small objects) as we count our thoughts. This exercise guides you to just observe thoughts for what they are - words - and to gain awareness of them. As we gain awareness we can amore easily detach from the stories and thoughts.
Meeting Pain Meditation
When someone lives with chronic pain, it is easy to become fearful of it. Fear of pain often holds people back from going out and causes a disconnection from the body. This 30-minute visualization gently guides you to understand and change how you perceive the sensations of pain to reduce fear of pain. I hope this helps you to begin to feel the power of you, not pain.
Body Scan Meditation
Reconnect with your body to find a sense of calmness. If you have trouble feeling parts of your body, place a tennis ball under each body part to bring your awareness to that area.
