According to the Arthritis Foundation, meditation can help ease arthritis pain. The trick is to stay consistent. To do that, one has to find the best type of medication that suits their condition and situation. Not sure where to start?
Here a few that we at Advantage Pointe Home Care suggest you try:
- Active Meditation
You don’t have to be in a quiet, dimly lit room to meditate. Active meditation is something you can do anywhere, anytime. Like mindfulness meditation, it requires you to intently focus on the present moment, and gently acknowledge and let go of feelings, thoughts, and sensations as they arise. Ask your provider of Home Care in West Palm Beach, Florida for advice about this practice.
- Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
There are multiple studies that show mindfulness mediation is one of the most effective practices for arthritis pain management. This meditation technique is about being fully present in the moment and acknowledging thoughts, feelings, and sensations in an open, non-judgmental way.
- Yoga Breathing
This is a great way to start and end your day. Sit comfortably, relax, and focus on the sensation of your breath as you inhale and exhale. Inhale for four seconds and then exhale for six seconds. Repeat for at least two minutes. If your mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to your breath.
