Relax your body and soul after an accident
If you suffered injuries in a serious accident and are still trying to recover, you may feel severe pain for quite some time while your wounds are healing and your bones are mending. Managing pain long-term can be quite a challenge if you are trying to stay off painkillers, which can have serious side effects if taken for too long. Learning to relax your body and soul, focusing on other aspects of your life rather than your pain, can be deeply therapeutic, and for this there are a number of techniques that you can learn.
Inducing “relaxed awareness” is the very basis of meditation. Meditation can slow your heart rate, regulate your breathing and reduce your blood pressure. It can also calm your troubled mind. Various studies have shown that people who practised transcendental meditation regularly had a measurable decrease of between 40 to 50% in their brain’s response to pain. Starting on the route of meditation on your own is actually quite easy. When you’ve mastered the basics, why not join a class, meet like-minded people and be distracted from your pain for a while?
Have a go and try this for just 20 minutes every day, in the morning and evening:
- Kneel or sit down comfortably wherever you feel safe and happy in your home;
- Close your eyes; and
- Mentally repeat a single word, perhaps one that makes you smile or feel safe.
Joining classes costs money if there is no NHS treatment available or a charity providing meditation classes locally. Compensation helps with such expenses. Provided your accident was caused by somebody else’s negligence and happened within the last three years, you can claim compensation with the help of an accident solicitor in Camelford.
