In previous blogs I have explained how we create self-induced stress by the way we speak to ourselves. Whether or not there are external issues causing problems in our lives, we are so often 'in our heads' that we create considerable stress by the inner turmoil resulting from how we talk to ourselves. Unfortunately as we now know, this can result in real physical pain.Add a comment
If you watched the first video of this series you will have already begun to develop an awareness of how you speak to yourself and how this is creating self-induced stress. Unfortunately this can result in inner turmoil which then 'fuels', or can even trigger, pain.Add a comment
Welcome back for the last of the 4 videos about how to develop more health-enhancing self talk. So far you have developed an awareness of how you cause yourself stress due to your inner chatter, which is an important start of you want to do something about it.
In the 2nd video you will have identified any patterns of thoughts that do create inner turmoil for you, as when and where these are most likely to happen. Hopefully you will also have identified some benefits of making some changes because this will help with your motivation to persist if you're tired or things get tough.Add a comment
Welcome back for the 3rd video in the series about how to develop more health-enhancing self talk. This is where we look at how the way we speak to ourselves can create self-induced stress, which can result in the perpetuation of chronic pain.
In the first two videos you will have developed an awareness of how you cause yourself stress as a result of the way you speak to yourself and you have probably been able to identify some patterns.Add a comment
It is now recognised that pain is often stress-induced and if the nerve pathways become learned, chronic pain can result. The emphasis when helping patients recover from chronic pain is to educate them about this concept and to help them identify the psychosocial links and triggers involved in the pain patterns.Add a comment
