Turning our attention towards pain with mindfulness can help us develop a new relationship with pain that allows for the down-regulation of the nervous system. With practice over time research shows a decrease in pain avoidance, attention bias and even pain sensitivity.
I liked this meditation because it made me focus on my body. It was easier to keep my mind from wandering to far because I was always able to bring it back to the body.
I have a hard time giving myself a break. Giving myself the benefit of the doubt. This helped me to just accept and allow my body and the manifestation of my feelings to just be. This helped to just let hurt or ache be. To notice it and say okay. That's how you feel today? Okay. It's okay. And accept it.
